Challenges and opportunities facing defence in achieving the Net Zero Carbon 2050 mandate

Back to all news

UK defence is embarking on an exciting and challenging journey to achieve a Net Zero Carbon future by 2050.

The Defence Sustainability Conference 2021 highlighted the scale and complexity of the challenge
facing defence in achieving its part of the Net Zero Carbon 2050 mandate.

Frazer-Nash hosted a panel discussion during the conference to discuss the challenges and opportunities
identified from the different layers within the defence community: from strategic decision and policy making
in the Ministry of Defence (MOD), through to technology and platforms development, and estates and
logistics provision.

Delivered in collaboration with Strategic Command, Babcock, Rolls-Royce and colleagues in Frazer-Nash, the paper below provides distilled insights from the panel discussion, with the aim of prompting further investigation into the key themes by the MOD.
