Dassault Aviation is included in the first-ever edition of the Financial Times‘ “Europe’s Climate Leaders 2021” ranking. The ranking identified the 300 European companies that achieved the greatest reduction in greenhouse gas emissions intensity between 2014 and 2019.
It is the result of a joint initiative by the Financial Times and the institute Statista, which conducted months of intensive research, reviewed existing emissions data, issued public calls for participation, and contacted thousands of companies directly. The research identified the companies that were most successful in controlling their greenhouse gas emissions in relation to their revenues.
With a long-term commitment to sustainability, our initiatives in terms of manufacturing, such as the development of new processes and the optimization of existing ones, are helping to reduce our current carbon footprint and will continue to do so for years to come. We actively promote the use of Sustainable Alternative Fuel (SAF) to replace conventional kerosene. The Falcon range is already sustainable fuel compatible. Dassault Aviation is actively involved in applied research programs: Clean Sky 2 at the European level and France’s civil aviation research council (Corac). This work focuses on lowering fuel consumption by reducing aircraft drag and weight. As members of the European Sesar program, Dassault Aviation aim to improve flight efficiency and fuel consumption through the use of specially tailored flight paths.
