Bombardier is leading the industry in sustainability by taking concrete actions to drive real change. A testament to this pledge is the Challenger 3500 aircraft—the most sustainably designed business jet in its class. It is the first super mid-size jet with an Environmental Product Declaration and the first business jet to achieve a carbon neutral flight test program. It also offers high-quality, sustainable cabin material options and introduces technology in the cockpit to help operators fly more efficiently and reduce CO2 emissions.
Concrete actions that drive real change
The Challenger 3500 business jet is the first super mid-size aircraft with an Environmental Product Declaration which communicates, quantifies and provides transparency on the environmental impact of the product throughout its lifecycle.
Industry-first carbon neutral flight test program
The Challenger 3500 aircraft’s flight test program was the first in business aviation to be completely carbon neutral.
Exceptional comfort, lower environmental footprint
Design your cabin interior from a selection of innovative, high-quality and sustainable materials without compromising style or comfort. Choose from a host of environmentally friendly interior options—including upcycled fabrics, alternative wood options and natural fiber-based materials—to create your own eco-friendly masterpiece.
Optimized flight efficiency = Lower CO2 emissions
Another first in the business aviation industry is the introduction of the eco app (eWAS Pilot with OptiFlight® from SITA) which allows crews to optimize their flight profiles-maximizing fuel efficiency, lowering CO2 emissions and improving situational awareness for a safer, more efficient and comfortable flight.
Fueling the future. Leading the industry
Bombardier’s leadership role in the promotion, adoption and scalability of Sustainable Aviation Fuel—a blend of conventional jet fuel and synthesized blended agents derived from seven approved sources, such as cooking oils, plant oils and wood waste—is helping chart a course toward a greener future. All Bombardier business jets, including the Challenger 3500 aircraft, can safely operate at their highest performance using Sustainable Aviation Fuel.
Bombardier’s Canadian manufacturing facilities are largely powered by hydroelectricity—a renewable energy source that harnesses the power of moving water to produce electricity, thereby reducing the amount of CO2 emissions.
