Boeing Reports Improved Environmental Performance

Boeing [NYSE: BA] today released its annual Environment Report highlighting the company's commitments and accomplishments in improving environmental performance for its products and operations. The report also features Boeing's continuing progress in sustainable growth and environmental conservation efforts in the communities where its employees live and work worldwide.

"Every day, Boeing employees find new and innovative ways to serve our global customers, and they are also committed to responsible environmental leadership in our products and how we manufacture, deliver and support them," said Chairman and Chief Executive Officer Jim McNerney. "As we look forward to our second century and building a bigger and better Boeing across the breadth and depth of our businesses and communities, we are also focused on helping build a better planet."


The report provides an update on Boeing's new environmental targets as the company balances profitable growth with cleaner operations.

  • Cleaner products including the launch of two new fuel-efficient airplanes – the 777X and 787-10 – and building the world's first all-electric propulsion satellite
  • Future flight concepts for improved environment performance such as Boeing's liquid hydrogen-powered Phantom Eye receiving experimental aircraft status from the U.S. Air Force
  • Innovations to help achieve zero growth in greenhouse gas emissions, such as the use of solar tubes in painting an airplane
