Presentation Title: Boeing Internal Resources Reduction Initiative

The Boeing Company is the world’s largest and most diversified aerospace company with Commercial and Defense, Space & Security partners and customers in more than 90 countries. We have more than 172,000 employees and 86 million square feet of floor space. While Boeing is aggressively driving toward greater sustainability in all aspects of our business, this presentation focuses on our internal operations, manufacturing and office conservation initiatives. Boeing is on track to meet externally communicated five-year Environmental Targets for reductions in energy consumption, greenhouse gas, hazardous waste generation and water use, as well as an increase in recycling rate. In addition, Boeing has established a LEED Silver standard for all new construction and building refurbishments and utilizes industry tools and best practices like EPA ENERGY STAR programs to continuously improve the efficiency of sites and buildings. To ensure meeting Company goals, the enterprise Conservation Initiative is comprised of eight focus areas that are driven by specific strategies, goals, communications and monthly metrics at all levels from individual sites up to the headquarters in Chicago. Conservation Focus Areas include: Energy Conservation, Renewable Energy, Sustainable Site & Building Design, Solid Waste & Recycling, Hazardous Waste, Water Conservation, Fleet Management and Alternative Commuting. Conservation strategies have also been incorporated into our Lean practices and workshops across the enterprise. Other programs that help drive greater sustainability include empowering more than 6,000 Employee Involvement Teams across the company to improve efficiency and eliminate waste. The annual internal Conservation Awards Program recognizes excellence in ten sustainability categories. Boeing also competes for external awards and recognition and has been named an EPA ENERGY STAR Industrial Partner of the Year for the past two consecutive years. Boeing’s commitment to environmental stewardship starts at the top. Jim McNerney, President and Chief Executive Officer, in response to Boeing being awarded the 2012 Partner of the Year Award, stated “This ongoing achievement showcases our employees’ commitment to champion the environment in everything we do - from developing and building our products to improving the efficiency of the infrastructure that supports them. This recognition is a reminder that all of us need to do our part to reduce consumption and conserve energy.”
