Episode 8: Inconvenience or Opportunity? Summarising Greening Defence

As the Greening Defence podcast concludes, the hosts come together to reflect on how the conversation about climate change has evolved within UK defence, where there is more work to be done, and what defence might need to do to make sure it is resilient for a climate changed future.

Across the first seven episodes, 11 guests joined us to help navigate the topics of climate change, sustainability, culture and technology, and to discuss how the single services are choosing to focus their efforts. In this final episode, hosts Lieutenant Colonel Alistair Beard, Dr Sarah Ashbridge, Doug Weir and Linsey Cottrell reflect on the conversations held and provide their own assessment of defence’s progress and future potential.
