San Francisco [US], June 30: Boeing on Wednesday released its annual Sustainability Report with a commitment to delivering commercial airplanes capable of flying on 100 percent sustainable fuels by 2030.
The report further defined the company's sustainability goals and included key metrics to measure the progress of core enterprise priorities, including employee safety and well-being, global aerospace safety, equity, diversity and inclusion, sustainable operations, innovation and clean technologies, and community engagement.
According to the report, Boeing continued to support the commercial aviation industry's commitment to achieving net-zero carbon emissions for global civil aviation operations by 2050.
The company maintained net-zero carbon emissions from manufacturing and facilities again in 2021 by expanding conservation and renewable electricity use while sourcing selected carbon offsets for remaining emissions, the report said.
The company incorporated product safety, employee safety and quality metrics into its primary annual incentive structures, Boeing said, emphasizing that it enhanced workplace safety using automation and robotics, reduced employee exposure to high hazards and reduced severe injuries by 27 percent in 2021.
"We are honored to release our second sustainability report that builds on Boeing's family of reports already released this year and shares how our collective ESG (environmental, social, and governance) efforts are contributing to our business and world," said Boeing's Chief Sustainability Officer Chris Raymond.
