Through Life Sustainability Toolset
The ‘through life sustainability and carbon impact’ needs to be considered in all future capability, acquisition, and equipment programmes.
Currently there is no policy or direction on what, how or when analysis must be done, what form it should take or which review gates this would be part of. Therefore, there is a task to develop an agreed approach methodology and toolset that can be applied across the enterprise.
This task is to assess Supportability analysis, ILS tools, Sustainability Environmental Assessment Toolset and other sector approaches, consider and recommend how they could be adopted, adapted and applied to inform the sustainability and carbon aspects of capability, acquisition and equipment procurement decisions across Defence.
