Boeing Plants Attain Environmental Certification

Company Earns ISO 14001 Recognition For Work In Recycling

Boeing announced this week all of its major manufacturing facilities received the internationally recognized ISO 14001 environmental certification by the end of 2008, marking achievement of one of the company's most significant environmental goals.

Certification is a global benchmark of an organization's commitment to understand and continually improve its environmental performance.

"We recognized many areas of excellence at Boeing, from employee involvement programs to recycling efforts, in one of the most aggressive ISO 14001 certification efforts we've seen," said Sidney Vianna, director of Aviation, Space & Defense Services for independent auditors Det Norske Veritas, an accredited certification body of quality, environmental and safety management systems. "Congratulations to Boeing on this significant accomplishment. We look forward to our ongoing partnership in continual environmental improvement."

The following Boeing sites certified during 2008 were commended for their environmental performance, with more than 80 positive noteworthy efforts and no major nonconformances:

  • Alabama: Huntsville
  • Arizona: Mesa
  • Australia: Bankstown, Fishermans Bend
  • California: El Segundo, Long Beach, Seal Beach, Sylmar, Taft, Torrance
  • Canada: Winnipeg
  • Florida: Kennedy Space Center
  • Missouri: St. Louis, St. Charles
  • Pennsylvania: Philadelphia
  • Texas: San Antonio
  • Utah: Salt Lake City
  • Washington: Auburn, Frederickson, Renton and North Boeing Field, Integrated Defense Systems sites in Puget Sound

"As a responsible corporate citizen and neighbor, we are focused on reducing energy use, greenhouse gas emissions, pollution and waste at our facilities," said Mary Armstrong, Boeing vice president, Environment, Health and Safety. "Certification is a tremendous achievement by our employees, ensuring that Boeing products, from our super-efficient commercial airplanes to our military aircraft, satellites and world record-holding solar cells, are manufactured in facilities that conform to the ISO 14001 standard of environmental performance."

Facilities in Exmouth, Australia; Everett, WA; and Portland, OR had previously achieved ISO 14001 certification. Boeing says it is now committed to pioneering environmentally progressive products and services and reducing its environmental footprint.
