“This recognition affirms that we are on the right path towards achieving our sustainability goals,” said Brian Rohloff, senior vice president, Customer Support. “We remain steadfast in our commitment to a more sustainable future for our employees, communities and customers.”

 

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.

 

Additionally, the Wichita Service Center now offers customers sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) as part of the standard customer service experience.

 

Textron Aviation remains an active participant in conversations and industry events dedicated to sustainability initiatives in aviation. The company collaborates with suppliers and stakeholders to find the most efficient and future-forward ways to manufacture products and procure energy.
