Winning the 2020 Defence Sustainability Challenge

This year the Joint Information Group Vanguard’s Defence Sustainability Challenge called for radical proposals to help Defence reduce its impact on the environment while still achieving its objectives. In response, several of our experts brainstormed ideas for the competition and we were proud to make up a fifth of the initial competition entries.

Sustainability Manager Laura Blake said:

“Thank you to all of our employees that took part in the competition. Our collective input towards the sustainability challenge was excellent. To have secured two places in the final ten amongst other industry representatives was a real achievement.”

Held at the LOGNET conference in London, the final round was judged by a panel of defence and environmental experts as contestants presented their radical ideas in just five minutes. Both of our presentations were well-received by the judges and Environmental Consultant Luke Harrison clinched the final prize with his 'Build with Lego' concept.

Luke said:

“There were a number of fantastic ideas presented, so I’m really pleased that the judges picked up on how much the ‘Build with Lego’ concept could benefit the MOD and I look forward to making the concept a reality”.

Congratulations to Luke as he develops his concept further and helps the MOD reach net zero by 2050!
