Our Vision: To be the best aerospace company for the world
Our vision is to be the best aerospace company for the world. For all we do, we want to benefit the company and the environment, with stronger, more resilient operations that also make the world a better place.
Every five years we establish quantifiable environmental and safety goals in collaboration with our parent company, United Technologies, and reviewed and approved by senior management and our Board of Directors, Our goals measure progress in actual metrics and are not adjusted for production. We know we must be responsible stewards for the environment. We owe it to our employees, ourselves, future generations, our customers and our shareholders.
Reduce GHG by 3% per year When it comes to Greenhouse Gas reductions, we have focused on shrinking our footprint. We have 11 buildings globally certified LEED Silver or better. And, where possible, we’re investing in renewable energy. At our PSD facility in Springdale, Arkansas, a new solar array will provide 230,000 kilowatt-hours per year, and help power a new, 20,000 square foot facility.
Reduce hazardous waste generation by 2% per year When it comes to hazardous waste, much of our work is around finding creative solutions. Instead of throwing out oily rags, we’re separating the oil from the rags and re-using both as much as possible. Elsewhere we’re using closed loop systems to re-use water, drastically reduce the amount of waste, and eliminate our compliance risk – all at the same time.
Reduce water consumption by 5% per year
For water consumption, we’ve focused on closed-loop systems in several of our manufacturing processes. For example, one system in water-scarce Singapore saves more than 800,000 gallons a year. Since 2006, we’ve reduced our water usage by 596 million gallons – that’s the equivalent of 902 Olympic-size swimming pools.
Recycle 90% of industrial process waste
Since 2018, Pratt & Whitney has recycled over 156 million pounds of industrial process waste, equivalent to the weight of 391 adult blue whales.
