Boeing employees work on every continent, with 18 international offices around the globe. Our largest operations outside the United States are based in Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom.
Boeing Australia represents the company’s largest operational footprint outside the United States. Boeing is part of the aerospace and defense fabric of Australia with nearly 3,000 employees at 27 sites and a heritage stretching back 85 years.
In September 2012, Boeing Australia filed its fourth National Greenhouse and Energy Report, detailing greenhouse gas emissions, energy consumption and energy production data. This comprehensive report must be completed by registered corporations who meet specified energy use and greenhouse gas emission thresholds. For the 2011–2012 reporting period, the Australian Government's Clean Energy Regulator released data for companies emitting more than 50,000 metric tons of equivalent carbon dioxide (CO2-e). Boeing Australia's CO2-e emissions were calculated at 60,804 metric tons.
Overall, Boeing Australia has achieved 8 percent reduction in CO2-e emissions since the first reporting period in 2008–2009, while simultaneously increasing production rates of high-end aerostructure components.
Boeing reports to Canada’s National Pollutant Release Inventory (NPRI), an inventory of pollutant releases, off-site disposal and treatment, on an annual basis. Since 2007, NPRI reporting increased significantly because of an increase in airplane production rates, resulting in the triggering of additional threshold reporting requirements. For more information, see the TRI/NPRI page in this Environment Report.
The Carbon Reduction Commitment Energy Efficiency Scheme (CRC), under the U.K. Department of Energy and Climate Change, is a mandatory emissions trading scheme aimed at reducing CO2 emissions in the United Kingdom. The CRC aims to raise awareness of energy use and incentivize energy efficient operations.
For the reporting period, April 1, 2011, through March 31, 2012, CRC-regulated emissions were 4,549 metric tons (5,014 tons) of CO2. Boeing operations in the U.K. consist of multiple units and subsidiaries. Boeing U.K. Training and Flight Services Ltd. operates flight simulators for training on Boeing aircraft at several locations throughout the U.K. Boeing Defence U.K. Ltd. has employees located at multiple locations throughout the U.K. supporting Ministry of Defence and U.S. military programs.
Additionally, CO2 emissions from Boeing subsidiary Jeppesen U.K. Ltd. are included in the Boeing U.K. CRC report.
