Environmental Sustainability

Environmental Sustainability is the use of resources at a rate that can be continued indefinitely while supporting ecological balance.

The implementation of sustainable practices at the IHS is shaped by federal laws and regulations; however, the concept is at the heart of the IHS Mission: to raise the physical, mental, social and spiritual health of American Indians and Alaska Natives to the highest level.

– Gary Hartz
