In 2018, Boeing unveiled its new environment strategy through 2025 with ambitious goals to innovate products for environmental performance, reduce emissions, waste, and water and energy consumption at work sites, and to work with communities around the globe.

"We are committed to cleaner water, air and land, and this report highlights the wide range of efforts surrounding Boeing's environmental stewardship around the globe," said Bryan Scott, vice president of Environment, Health & Safety.

Highlights of the report include:

  • Partnering with a UK-based recycler to keep up to 2 million pounds of excess carbon fiber from Boeing factories out of landfills per year.
  • Using renewable energy to power Boeing's primary data center, saving enough electricity to power more than 4,000 homes annually.
  • Working with Etihad Airways to fly a 787 Dreamliner powered partly by biofuel made from desert plants irrigated with seawater.
  • Designing new energy-efficient facilities around the world, including the 737 Completion and Delivery Center in Zhoushan, China, and the fabrication facility in Sheffield, UK.
  • Catalyzing development of sustainable aviation fuel and offering customers the option of using biofuel on delivery flights.
  • Surpassing 2018 targets, including reducing greenhouse gas emissions by up to 7.3 percent at work sites.
