Episode 4: A Bet on Technology?


Future technology is often viewed as an all-encompassing answer to climate change, even in the defence sector. The armed forces have placed a bet on technology with the expectation that technological breakthroughs will facilitate their ability to operate in environments affected by climate change.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, given the widespread impact of climate change, the range of technological solutions on offer to Defence is extensive, but with varying degrees of utility. Hosts Dr Sarah Ashbridge (RUSI) and Doug Weir (CEOBS) are joined by Steve Murray, VP, Strategy and Marketing UK at Thales and Finlay Asher, Co-Founder, Safe Landing and Founder, Green Sky Thinking to explore the role of technology in climate change mitigation and its suitability for Defence.
