star this property answer text <p>The Ministry of Defence (MOD) is committed to reducing the environmental impact of its acquisition activities, including manufacturing by industry, and has identified climate change as a key sustainability priority. Our investment approvals policy includes a requirement to take sustainability into account in all initial business cases, and the use of an environmental management system is mandated for all acquisition projects. This helps to ensure that our activities are compliant with Government sustainable development and environmental protection policy requirements. More detailed guidance and training is also provided to project teams to strengthen environmental management.</p><p>Defence industry suppliers also have a key role to play in improving their own processes and supply chain education. We expect our suppliers to abide by the Government's Supplier Code of Conduct, which requires suppliers to understand and reduce their impact on the environment. Underpinning this, the MOD has published a Defence Standard for assurance that contractors are operating suitable environmental management systems. We also continue to work through the Sustainable Procurement Working Group to share good practice and maintain a dialogue with industry partners on this important issue.</p><p>More information on how the MOD manages sustainable procurement can be found on the Knowledge in Defence website at the following link:</p><p>https://www.gov.uk/guidance/knowledge-in-defence-kid</p>
