12:00 pm - 12:30 pm Leading the Way in Sustainable Operational and Installation Energy – United Kingdom

Lieutenant General Richard Nugee CVO CBE - Chief of Defense People, Ministry of Defence UK

This session will focus on the LG Nugee’s inquiry for the UK Ministry of Defense into the entirety of the UK's climate change policy, which focuses on ambitious targets for reducing the MoD Defence Equipment & Support (DE&S)'s net emissions to zero by 2050. The review is meant to push the MoD to lead the entire British economy into adopting more sustainable energy sources, and will also serve as a roadmap for other countries with large militaries with plans to diversify their energy sources.
