Of particular concern are greenhouse gas emissions, the legacy issues associated with military installations, as well as the exemptions from environmental oversight that militaries often enjoy.

Our colleague Linsey contributed to this publication and launch event in Vienna this week. Discussing why we have a @milemissionsgap and why it must be addressed as part of tackling the #ClimateCrisis. #Military

Interesting step from @DefenceHQ that could contribute to a greater understanding of the scale of GHG emissions from UK #military aviation - something vital for identifying emissions reductions.

We'll be joining this panel to discuss our @milemissionsgap project and the state of #military GHG emissions reporting and reductions among @NATO members, and globally. #ClimateCrisis
