First business jet with an Environmental Product Declaration
On June 30, 2020, Bombardier made history when it became the first business jet manufacturer to release an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD), which it did for the industry flagship Global 7500 aircraft.
Third party verified in accordance with the International Standard ISO 14025, the EPD embeds environmental considerations from design to end-of-life, and from tip-to-tail, making sustainability an integral part of how we innovate.
Bombardier’s complete product innovation life cycle process includes:
Design: incorporation of safety, environment and efficiency considerations
Supply Chain & Production: rigorous supplier validation for optimal and sustainable product sourcing
Manufacturing & Testing: make health, safety and the environment top priorities
Product & Maintenance: deliver the ultimate passenger experience and environmental performance
End-of-life: increase material recyclability and recoverability rates
Taking concrete actions to make the industry more sustainable
Bombardier is not only committed to the sustainability of its products and business operations but is also driving efforts to make the business aviation industry more responsible. Therefore, we are leading the promotion and adoption of Sustainable Aviation Fuels as we all work towards mitigating the effects of climate change.
