Sustainable Defence Support – A DSFDB Sub-working Group

Under Governance of the Defence Support Force Development Board (DSFDB) the purpose of the Sustainable Defence Support (Sus DefSp) Sub-Working Group (SWG) is to guide an accelerated development and exploitation path for sustainable, circular economy and carbon reduction activities across Defence Support.

The collaborative nature of the SWG is designed to promote pooling of talent and diversity of thought to achieve mutually beneficial outcomes in the development of a sustainable Defence Support Network (DSN) and Defence’s realisation of NZ50 targets.
