We recognize the important responsibility we have to minimize the adverse impact of our products and operations on the environment.
Today all our eligible sites are certified or in the process of obtaining their certification by external parties according to the ISO 14001 Standard for Environmental Management. We successfully completed the adaptation of our systems to the revised 2015 version of ISO 14001.
Our teams have been working hard over the past five years to reduce the environmental impact of our operations and meet our five- year targets between 2014 and 2018:
reduce absolute energy consumption, GHG emissions, water consumption and waste by 1%;
reduce relative water consumption and waste by 1% and energy consumption and GHG emissions by 3% per 200,000 worked hours; and
increase waste valorization by 3%.
Tracking to our 2013 baseline, we made progress and achieved an overall improvement, all through a thriving period of robust product development and testing at Aviation and increase in production at Transportation. As we enter the final phase of our turnaround plan and increase production in major growth programs in 2019, we have fixed a one-year target aimed at sustaining 2018 results through this pivotal year.
Total Energy Consomption ■ Millions of GJ ▬ Revenue intensity (GJ/million dollars revenue)
Scope 1 & 2 ■ Thousands of tonnes of CO2e ▬ Revenue intensity (GHG/million dollars revenue)
Hazardous and non-hazardous ■ Thousands of tonnes ▬ Valorized waste (% of total waste)
As a signatory to the unprecedented Aviation Industry Commitment to Action for Climate Change, and as an active leader of the General Aviation Manufacturers Association (GAMA) Environment Committee, we contribute to the industry’s progress to reduce the impact of air travel on climate change, which includes the adoption of an international regulatory framework to reduce aviation’s emissions.
Last year, along with industry partners, we continued to lead the charge for increased adoption of Sustainable Alternative Jet Fuel (SAJF) in the business aviation segment. In early 2019, as the result of our efforts, Van Nuys Airport became the first general aviation airport in the United States to offer SAJF to operators on a trial basis.
