Boeing reports toxic releases to both the U.S. Toxic Release Inventory (TRI) and to Canada’s National Pollutant Release Inventory (NPRI), an inventory of pollutant releases and recycling, on an annual basis.

Boeing has reduced toxic releases (on a normalized basis) by 1 percent since 2007, while overall transfers of chemicals to offsite facilities have decreased 88 percent during the same period. Transfers peaked in 2007, largely as a result of a transfer of old tooling and scrap metal to a recycler from our Wichita facility.

Data for 2012 will be submitted to the U.S. and Canadian governments after the publication of this report and will be included in Boeing's 2014 Environment Report.
