Our Environment Policy
Boeing is committed to:
Boeing’s ecoDemonstrator Program accelerates innovation by taking promising technologies out of the lab and testing them in the air to solve real-world challenges for airlines, passengers and the environment. Eight airplanes have served as flying test beds for the program since it began in 2012.
Research & Innovation
As the advanced central research and development organization of The Boeing Company, Boeing Research & Technology (BR&T) provides innovative technologies that enable the development of future aerospace solutions while improving the cost, quality, efficiency and performance of Boeing products.
This includes finding innovative solutions around the world to improve environmental performance.
From researching biofuels, fuel cells and hybrid electric propulsion to improving air traffic management, finding sustainable composite materials and exploring new chemical coatings that resist corrosion, our team of technicians, technologists, engineers and scientists collaborate with research and development partners around the world to solve today and tomorrow’s environmental challenges.
Boeing Research & Technology has also partnered and contracted with the U.S. Federal Aviation Administration and the National Aeronautics and Space Administration in researching both next generation and futuristic technologies and concepts that could make aerospace products more environmentally efficient.
Boeing’s remediation program is focused on using innovative approaches in cleanup efforts to ensure the protection of human health and the environment, coupled with the use of invaluable input from community members and environmental groups. This, combined with the guidance of leading environmental scientists and federal and state regulatory agencies, has led to great progress in cleaning up remediation sites. Boeing also often collaborates with wildlife and conservation organizations to restore habitat for the benefit of wildlife and the community.
