As we look to create a more sustainable future, we don’t just have our eyes
on the sky. We’re also continuously working to reduce our environmental impact
on the ground through better efficiency and resource management in our
operations and across our supply chain activities. Here’s a look at some of our
sustainability efforts on ground and the progress we’ve made in recent years.
Greenhouse gas emissions
We are working to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions across our operations
through efforts to reduce energy usage and turn to more renewable, sustainable
Solar energy is being utilized by seven sites worldwide to replace more
than 3,898 MT CO2 and 4.3 million lbs. of coal burned per year – equivalent to
removing 855 passenger vehicles from the road annually
At our propeller facilities, in 10 years we have reduced our CO2
emissions by 45% while growing our business by 50% and our workforce by 20%
We strive to use water responsibly by improving our water management
processes through rigorous oversight and conservation efforts. Depending on the
geographical location of our sites and their natural environment, we optimize
our production process and reduce virgin water usage by recycling water and
reusing reclaimed water and rainwater.
99% implementation of water best management practices (BMPs) since 2015
We are committed to eliminating waste, championing reuse and recycling across
our value chain to accelerate a more circular system.
Recycling 94% of all waste generated
Chemical risk reduction
We collaborate with our peers and partners to diligently monitor, manage and
phase out harmful chemicals in our operations. We’re also finding greener
solutions to deliver products with minimal impact.
Our Green Solutions Working Group (GSWG) brings together experts in materials
science to work closely with the Raytheon Technologies Research Center,
customers and suppliers to share knowledge and best practices. The GSWG
currently has 13 environmentally friendly solutions under development, seven of
which are ready for use.
The team has focused on EU REACH (an EU regulation for Registration,
Evaluation, Authorization of restricted Chemicals), participating in forums to
create “green” alternatives for dangerous chemicals.
Objective of 100% solvent air emission elimination planned for 2022
