Boeing recognizes that climate change and pollution are serious global concerns. Commercial air travel accounts for 2 percent of man-made carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, and that is expected to grow to 3 percent by 2050.
For our industry to continue growing and contributing to global prosperity, we recognize that we must take action.
Our most significant contribution to protect our ecosystem is to develop innovative new technologies and services that improve the environmental performance of our products. In the past year, we have introduced a number of new technologies, ranging from two new fuel-efficient commercial airplanes to demonstration concepts for systems designed to improve the efficiency of electrical grids.
