Energy Conservation

Improving energy efficiency across Boeing continues to be a key focus for the company. In 2013, Boeing’s energy use was 13.81 million MMBtus, a 0.8 percent increase from 2012.

About half our energy is derived from electricity, the other from natural gas. View our 2007–2012 energy reduction performance in the 2013 Environment Report.

Boeing also sponsors an annual internal Conservation Awards program to recognize and encourage replication of best practices across the company. Now in its 11th year, more than 500 completed projects have applied for the award, which is given to a select few teams every year for driving environmental performance. Through the program, projects such as the LED lighting project in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, have resulted in annual energy consumption reductions of over 2.4 million MMBtus.
