Textron Aviation's 20 company-owned service centres have received recertification from NATA as a Green Aviation Business. The recognition is part of NATA's Sustainability Standard for Aviation Businesses programme encouraging environmental sustainability within the industry.

“We understand the importance of pursuing sustainable solutions in our operations across the globe and are taking actions for a sustainable future for our employees, communities and customers,” says Brian Rohloff, senior VP of customer support. “I am proud that our investments in our facilities not only allow us to offer the best customer experience but also reduce our environmental footprint.”

Five company-owned service centres achieved Tier 1 status and 15 achieved base-level certifications. To achieve base level certification, facilities must establish a baseline carbon footprint and work to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions with ground support equipment. Facilities also must offer recycling, implement paperless systems as appropriate, begin installing LED lighting and reduce plastic water bottle use.

Tier 1 facilities comprise the company's service centres in Paris, Singapore, Valencia, Zurich and Indianapolis, Indiana. In addition to the base level certification achievements, these facilities phased out single use plastic items, installed motion-sensor lighting and ensured kitchen appliances and plumbing fixtures are energy efficient. These locations also developed policies to reduce idling in ground support equipment.

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