Boeing has joined the Renewable Energy Buyers Alliance (REBA) in support of its goals to reduce greenhouse gas emissions 25% by 2025, and ultimately power operations with 100% renewable energy. This alliance of large clean energy buyers, energy providers, service providers and NGO partners supports a large-scale, rapid transition to a cleaner future.
“This move demonstrates Boeing’s commitment to environmental responsibility. Boeing is shifting into a new era, where we must focus on a zero-carbon energy path forward. Joining the world’s largest corporations in a global sustainability effort is the right thing to do for the planet,” said Beth Schryer, Boeing Vice President of Facilities & Asset Management.
REBA membership expands Boeing’s leadership in the use of renewable energy and energy efficiency. Two Boeing sites – Renton, Washington, and Charleston, South Carolina – use 100% carbon-free electricity through a combination of renewable energy consumption and carbon offsets from renewable sources. The company is also ranked 16th on the EPA’s Green Power Partnership Fortune 500® Partners List, and has been named an EPA ENERGY STAR® Partner of the Year for nine years running.
“As the world’s largest aerospace company, it is our job to use resources responsibly. Our teams at Boeing are working toward a future of 100% renewable energy in our plants and offices,” said Bryan Scott, Boeing Vice President of Environment, Health & Safety.
Boeing is the world’s largest aerospace company and leading provider of commercial airplanes, defense, space and security systems, and global services. As a top U.S. exporter, the company supports commercial and government customers in more than 150 countries. Boeing employs more than 160,000 people worldwide and leverages the talents of a global supplier base.
Building on a legacy of aerospace leadership, Boeing continues to lead in technology and innovation, deliver for its customers and invest in its people and future growth.
