Defense Logistics Agency (June 16, 2005): DSCR receives White House Environmental Award.
The White House Office of the Federal Environmental Executive presents the awards annually. DSCR was among 11 winners selected from nearly 200 nominations in the areas of environment management systems, pollution prevention, recycling, green product purchasing, alternative fuels, and sustainable building.
DSCR received special recognition for partnering with local governments and stakeholders in the development of their EMS. Increased levels of public confidence on environmental issues were attributed to DSCR's partnerships with Chesterfield County, the city of Richmond, and Virginia's Department of Environmental Quality.
DSCR has been a consistent and dependable supplier of quality goods and services to those defending freedom around the world since it was activated in 1942. Designated as the aviation supply chain manager for the Defense Logistics Agency, DSCR serves within the DoD supply chain as the primary source for the almost 1.2 million repair parts and operating supply items. While these items and parts have an extremely wide range of applications, the center's core mission is to supply products with a direct application to aviation. These include a mix of military-unique items supporting more than 1,300 major weapons systems, and other items readily available in the commercial market.
