World Environment Day podcast: How we can make an impact


The theme for this year’s World Environment Day, ‘Only One Earth’, calls for collective and transformative action on a global scale to celebrate, protect and restore our planet.

While the green agenda is of extreme importance to every sector, it has come to the forefront of the defence industry as we collectively work to reduce the impact of business in our sector on the environment around us. 

In some countries, there are new mandates around emissions and carbon reduction goals, meaning not only ourselves but our customers and our supply chain in its entirety must make conscious efforts in order to make an impact. Our latest podcast explores how we can encourage and influence a shift to greener and more sustainable pathways in the defence and security industry.

Host Hannah Cowley, Supply Chain Lead for Sustainable Procurement, is joined by Carol Borg, Group Chief Financial Officer; Iain Farley, Deputy Group Business Development Director and Sam Healy, Group Corporate Responsibility and Sustainability Director. 

They discuss some of the biggest environmental challenges unique to the Defence and Security industry, providing examples of how we are working with our customers to address these challenges. The podcast then closes with a discussion around how we can make an impact, by working collaboratively with colleagues, customers and partners.
