Environment, Health and Safety Organization
Environmental initiatives inside Boeing are consolidated into one corporate organization — Environment, Health and Safety — which works with Boeing business units to drive an integrated, companywide strategy that includes our products, services, processes and facilities. This strategy also considers the impacts of our suppliers and customers.
Our strategy is guided by the Environment, Health and Safety Policy Council, led by Boeing Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer Jim McNerney. This Policy Council ensures that strategy and performance targets are set and monitored at the highest levels of the company.
The Environment, Health and Safety organization contains functions focused on occupational safety and health, environmental and regulatory compliance. Responsibilities of this organization include
- Establishing companywide strategies to address current and potential future environmental issues associated with Boeing products, services, facilities and technologies, and those of our suppliers and customers.
- Defining and implementing companywide environmental management systems and tools for integrating environmental capabilities into the company's core operating processes.
- Establishing standards, processes and guidelines for tracking Boeing's performance to these environmental plans and objectives.
- Assisting business partners in tracking their performance to environmental plans and objectives.
