Factors for Setting Improvement Goals
The Boeing Conservation Initiative, launched in 2008, drives efficiency and sustainability improvements in eight targeted areas: Energy Conservation, Renewable Energy, Sustainable Site and Building Design, Solid Waste and Recycling, Hazardous Waste, Water, Fleet, and Commuting. Improvement goals are based on the company's energy management experience and capabilities spanning almost 20 years. The factors considered include: historical energy consumption, site-to-site benchmarking comparisons, energy conservation project replication opportunities, infrastructure improvements, employee engagement efforts, and ISO 14001 environmental management system certifications. These considerations are weighed against business and production growth projections to determine long-range energy reduction goals.
