WHAT IS THE SUSTAINABILITY WORKING GROUP?

The ADS Sustainability Working Group (formerly the Environmental Sustainability Working Group), is a special interest group which aims to bring together representatives from ADS member organisations who want to learn, collaborate and drive the sustainability agenda across all sectors . 

WHAT IS THE PURPOSE OF THE GROUP?

The ADS Sustainability Working Group’s principle objective is to help ADS members understand how environmental issues may impact their businesses and uses the UN Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) as the basis for its work remit.

 

It provides a forum to;

·         Coordinate, communicate and promote authoritative information; 

·         Be the industry reference platform regarding product sustainability, maintaining a value chain perspective and considering the whole life-cycle;

·         Share and promote best practice; 

·         To engage with stakeholders on environmental issues and regulation affecting the aerospace, defence, security and space sectors; 

·         Provide a coordinated ADS response to UK and European environmental legislation, and consultations on environmental legislation, when they are likely to impact on one or more of the industry sectors of ADS members;

·         Support ADS liaison with Government departments, regulators and representatives of other industry sectors including ASD, as required, to lobby on behalf of the aerospace, defence, security and space sectors;
