Reducing Our Environmental Footprint
Our Environmental and Climate Change Policies
Boeing is committed to operating in a manner that promotes environmental stewardship. We strive to:
- Conduct operations in compliance with applicable environmental laws, regulations, and Boeing policies and procedures.
- Prevent pollution by conserving energy and resources, recycling, reducing waste and pursuing other source reduction strategies.
- Continually improve our environmental management system.
- Work together with our suppliers, customers and other stakeholders on activities that promote environmental protection.
Boeing believes that climate change is a serious environmental challenge that requires credible action. Recognizing this, we are committed to reduce emissions of greenhouse gases from our facilities and products.
As the global community develops approaches to reducing greenhouse gas emissions, we acknowledge that voluntary measures alone may not be enough. Consequently, we support development of mandatory, yet flexible frameworks to address emission reductions.
Boeing recognizes that appropriate action may vary from one sector to another. A comprehensive approach should take into account the most effective way to deal with each industry sector. Since airplanes connect the world and fly between countries, we also advocate a single global approach to addressing emissions in commercial aviation.
