FORT KNOX, KY. — Fort Knox has been selected by U.S. Army Installation Management Command as a 2014 Army Community of Excellence bronze award winner.

Fort Knox was one of 31 Army installations competing for the honor.

The Army cited the military postís aggressive energy conservation program that resulted in a 30 percent decrease in electricity and 67 percent decrease in natural gas usage and environmental sustainment efforts resulting in the collection of 40,000 pounds of hazardous materials annually.

Established in 1985, the ACOE program is sponsored by the chief of staff of the Army and recognizes excellence at Army installations by assessing all components and dimensions of installation management.
