Boeing begins its second century of business with a firm commitment to lead the aerospace industry into an environmentally progressive and sustainable future.

Our centennial in 2016 marked 100 years of innovation in products and services that helped transform aviation and the world. The same dedication is bringing ongoing innovation in more efficient, cleaner products and operations for our employees, customers and communities around the globe.

Our strategy and actions reflect goals and priorities that address the most critical environmental challenges facing our company, customers and industry. Innovations that improve efficiency across our product lines and throughout our operations drive reductions in emissions and mitigate impacts on climate change.

We’re reducing waste and water use in our facilities, even as we see our business growing. In addition, we’re finding alternatives to chemicals and hazardous materials in our products and operations, and we’re leading the global development of sustainable aviation fuels.

Meeting climate change and other challenges head-on requires a global approach. Boeing works closely with government agencies, customers, stakeholders and research facilities worldwide to develop solutions that help protect the environment.

Our commitment to a cleaner, more sustainable future drives action at every level of the company. Every day, thousands of Boeing employees lead activities and projects that advance progress in reducing emissions and conserving water and resources.

In the face of rapidly changing business and environmental landscapes, Boeing will pursue the innovation and leadership that will build a brighter, more sustainable future for our employees, customers, communities and industry.
