Bombardier lays out plans to build on Global 7500 EPD
Bombardier, which last year paved new ground when its Global 7500 became the first business jet to achieve an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) through the International EPD System, is planning to pursue similar declarations on all of its new aircraft and upgrades moving forward, the company said.
Third-party verified to ISO standards, the EPD discloses detailed environmental information about the Global 7500’s lifecycle, such as CO2 emissions, noise, water consumption, and other key environmental impact indicators. The International EPD System has built a library of published EPDs for products from more than 30 countries to foster transparency about environmental lifecycles. But the Global 7500 was the very first from the business jet community.
Bombardier called the EPD an important milestone in its overarching environmental sustainability strategy, saying it has not only provided lessons learned about taking a more sustainable approach throughout the lifecycle of the product but has also helped the company and its suppliers develop more efficient products.
