At DSEI in London, QinetiQ was one of several defence companies to sign up to the Defence Aviation Net-Zero Charter, building upon its launch at RIAT earlier this year.

Net Zero

Nic Anderson, Chief Executive UK Defence, joined Air Vice-Marshal Paul Lloyd who has led the initiative with Steve Gillard from Boeing.

The Defence Aviation Net-Zero Strategy outlines how Defence Aviation will contribute to the UK’s Net-Zero ambition, while ensuring its continued operational effectiveness.

The charter is an important enabler for the strategy, and emphases the role of collaboration to meeting the Royal Air Force’s aspirational goal to become net zero by 2040. With a focus on innovation and, information sharing, the charter identifies the opportunities to decarbonise and enhance operational effectiveness, considering resilience within supply chains, sustainable aviation fuels, propulsion, synthetic training and wider sustainability issues.

By signing the charter, we are proud to play our part in contribution to Net-Zero ambition.

Dr Sam Healy, Group Director ESG at QinetiQ said: “Signing up to this charter is a reflection of our commitment to tackling climate change and our belief that collaboration is going to be vital to successful decarbonisation”.
