  1. Textron Aviation First OEM With NATA Sustainability Recognition
    Textron Aviation is the first OEM in the world to have achieved NATA Sustainability Recognition. The news is in relation to Textron's 20 service centers around the world which achieved the certification as part of the National Air Transportation Association’s (NATA) Sustainability Standard for Aviation Businesses in recognition of the company’s sustainability efforts. Textron Aviation is the first aircraft original equipment manufacturer (OEM) to receive this certification confirming sustainable practices in use and the largest company with multiple locations to self-certify each site.
  2. Let's look at some of the initiatives and practices Textron Aviation implemented. Textron Aviation has entered into a 20-year contract with Evergy, a Kansas based energy company, and its New Green Energy Program. This contract supports nearly all of the Wichita and Independence facilities’ electricity needs by utilizing Kansas’ abundant, affordable and renewable wind energy. In addition, all North American Service Centers have transitioned to using LED lighting throughout the facilities to reduce energy usage. The company also has a robust recycling program that lessens the burden on the need for the consumption of new natural resources. Landing gear, avionics and electronics can be recycled or repurposed through this program. SAF is naturally a part of the program as well with the company offering the sustainable aviation fuel to its customers as part of the standard customer service experience.
