Operational Footprint Goals
While our business continues to grow, we are committed to zero growth for our environmental targets.
Summary of Environmental and Business Performance 2013
Operational footprint goals
Boeing continues to accelerate improvements in the environmental performance of the company’s operations. From 2007 to 2012, during a time of significant business growth, Boeing surpassed its first set of absolute-reduction targets.
Building on the demonstrated performance of the first set of five-year targets, and as business continues to grow, Boeing is committed that, by the end of 2017, our greenhouse gas emissions, water intake and solid waste to landfills will remain the same, as they were at the end of 2012. Additionally, we are committed to limiting our hazardous waste generation to no more than the rate at which our business is growing.
About this section
The graphs and charts in this section are labeled with information rounded to the nearest decimal place and reflect the environmental performance of the majority of Boeing facilities, calculated from a baseline of 2012 values. However, some slight variation in the display of the data may occur in the visual appearance of some graphs for the purpose of creating visual presentations.
Additionally, each chart is represented by its own data set that is described in the accompanying footnotes.
