R.E.A.C.H. & MATERIALS

OF CONCERN

Pratt & Whitney continues to take a leadership role
in green engine technology and the development of environmentally responsible products, services
and operations.

We encourage educational institutions, students, professionals and customers to explore our Web site to learn more and download product, services and operations information.

For more than a decade, Pratt & Whitney has actively pursued reductions in the use of materials of concern in our products and our factories that could negatively impact the environment. During that period, we created and executed a technology plan to develop green alternative materials. Today, we continue to actively pursue MOC elimination by validating green alternatives.

In 2008, Pratt & Whitney contributed $50,000 to Yale University to help study ways in which the aerospace industry can reduce its environmental impact.

Pratt & Whitney is also committed to complying with R.E.A.C.H. (Registration, Evaluation, Authorization and Restriction of Chemicals) regulation. R.E.A.C.H. is a European Union law that requires businesses to manage the risks posed by chemicals and provide appropriate safety information to their users.

As our knowledge of the interaction between EU-identified chemicals and materials of concern (MOC) and the environment increases, our company will continue to address both areas and validate environmentally-friendly alternatives.
