In the first of its kind, the Defence Sustainability Conference will showcase the extensive work currently underway across the MOD, Industry and Academia to optimise operational advantage and support the target of Net Zero 50 (NZ50).
Due to the recent upgraded COVID restrictions, the full conference will be held on the 19th and 20th of January 2021.
It will highlight the need for clear policy developments and provide a platform for innovative ideas and projects being delivered in support of a more sustainable future. This will include presentations from some of the key stakeholders both within the MOD itself, across the supply chain and outside of Defence. The event is designed to spark opportunities for developing best practice and collaboration, as well as creating a pan-sector network of stakeholders to help raise awareness of opportunities to challenge the current ways of working.
The keynote speeches for the day will be provided by Lieutenant General Richard Nugee CB CVO CBE Climate Change and Sustainability Strategy Lead and Lieutenant General Richard Wardlaw OBE, Chief Defence Logistics and Support, who will provide his vision on a Sustainable Defence operating model.
The conference is being run as a collaboration between Team Defence Information, UK Defence Solution Centre (UK DSC) and the Ministry of Defence, with support from ADS Group and techUK, and will feature a full day of live speakers, virtual trade stands and areas to network and share ideas.
The event agenda will cover the following topics and areas:
- MOD Policy & Future Direction
- Infrastructure and Estates
- Air & Space
- MarineInnovation & Investment
- Deployed & Operations
- Information Technology
This conference, and the associated discussions and follow-ups, will inform the future direction of the pan- defence sustainability cooperation group.
