Increased global attention to sustainability presents a significant new opportunity to move toward becoming a high-performance business.
Aerospace and defense companies are at the center of the energy debate. Commercial aviation manufacturers are part of an industry in which fossil fuels are a primary driver of both operating cost and public image. In the defense sector, energy is not just a cost issue; it is a national security and policy issue.
For A&D companies, the implementation of new processes and technologies that support sustainability can differentiate them in a market that is ready for answers to compelling challenges.
A&D companies can take real steps to support sustainability. As A&D companies shift from vertically integrated manufacturing to networked providers of product integration services and support, their sustainability efforts will have a direct economic and environmental impact upon their customers.
Steps such as co-locating facilities with suppliers, limiting inter-facility transfers, consolidating data centers, implementing transportation and maintenance planning capabilities and focusing on strategic sourcing can all reduce emissions and improve efficiency.
By working toward sustainability, A&D companies can achieve high performance for themselves while also helping their customers along their own journeys to high performance.
