Infrastructure, Environmental Protection and Services
More than 26,000 civilian and military posts make the major organisational element “Infrastructure, Environmental Protection and Services” (IUDInfrastruktur, Umweltschutz und Dienstleistungen) the largest civilian organisational element of the Bundeswehr.
We provide comprehensive services for the entire Bundeswehr
Our civilian and military personnel are in charge of the construction and maintenance of Bundeswehr facilities and assume statutory protective tasks such as occupational safety, environmental protection and fire protection for the entire Bundeswehr. The IUDInfrastruktur, Umweltschutz und Dienstleistungen service portfolio also includes catering and travel management. These services are also provided for Bundeswehr personnel serving abroad.
A main focus of our activities is on civilian support for Bundeswehr operations abroad through appropriate action both in Germany and in the theatres. For example, IUDInfrastruktur, Umweltschutz und Dienstleistungen personnel ensure the food supply of service members during operations abroad and contract transportation services to the theatres.
