Defense & Aerospace Sector
Military leaders and veterans recognize climate change as a "threat multiplier" that exacerbates instability, threatens defense assets, and poses a risk to our national security. Defense industry executives are responding to the climate change-related challenges their military clients face with creativity, ingenuity, and passion. From developing energy-efficient military vehicles to reducing their own carbon emissions, defense companies are on the front lines of reducing the harmful impacts of greenhouse gases on our environment. Our mission is to empower these defense leaders to press for broad action to limit the effects of climate change.
