2009 Environment Report Boeing
Toxic Release Inventory

Boeing has reduced its Toxic Release Inventory releases by 58 percent since 2002 through the reformulation of more environmentally progressive manufacturing materials and the application of Lean+ principles to minimize usage and waste.

However, transfers increased significantly in 2007, primarily due to a one-time reclamation effort at our Integrated Defense Systems facility in Wichita. Approximately 10,500 tons of old and unused tooling and materials were transferred to brokers for appropriate recycling. Boeing is committed to the safe and environmentally progressive disposal of discarded materials.
