At the far end of the product life cycle is end of service. What happens to products at the end of use is an important part of our environmental footprint.
We’re looking at ways that entire aircraft can be dismantled and the parts reused or recycled at the end of service. It’s a big job, so we’re working with organizations such as the Aircraft Fleet Recycling Association to understand it better.
We value the communities, regions and countries in which we operate, as well, and have programs designed to promote environmental protection, education and more.
We have a robust remediation and restoration program that works to restore and bring back to public use lands that have been production, test, operation or waste sites. We’re proud of our work. In 2015, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) recognized us for these efforts at one of our sites.
