2008 Environment Report Boeing
Water Conservation

Boeing has reduced water consumption by 28.2 percent since 2002 by aggressively implementing improvements in our production processes and building systems equipment. We chartered a Water Conservation team to lead our improvement efforts, implemented major water reduction projects ranging from total wastewater and steam condensate recycling to rinse water reduction, and outfitted our newly constructed and renovated buildings with low-flow toilets, faucet aerators and auto-off faucets. And we will continue to pursue further improvements in this important area, even as our production rates increase.
