U.S. defense and intelligence communities are increasingly focusing resources on the operational and national security implications of climate change and energy. With the most recent quadrennial report identifying climate change as a global destabilizing force for the first time, an executive order from President Obama on sustainability across the Federal agencies, and an uncertain and unstable energy market, the challenges before American defense and national security communities to mitigate climate impacts and energy risks, as well as establish a leaner, more effective operational force in a down economy are clear.

Program Highlights

  • Hear insights from senior Federal officials in the Department of Defense, intelligence organizations and GSA on existing mandates, operational strategies and opportunities for collaboration
  • Participate in 10-12 roundtable sessions with peers across sectors on topics including:
    • Developing clean energy infrastructure throughout installations and forward operations,
    • Overcoming barriers to modernizing facilities management and green design in defense installations,
    • Vehicle fuel sources,
    • Enterprise management and governance,
    • Operationalizing supply chain programs and modernizing procurement paradigms,
    • Stakeholder engagement and external relations,
    • Workforce education and training,
    • Establishing a laboratory for renewable energy technologies, and
    • National security implications.
  • Examine implications of Executive Order 13514 and other recent Congressional and Executive mandates on Department of Defense operations
  • Explore opportunities for cross-sector working groups
