The environment and climate change

Sustainability
The risk that climate change will have a significant and lasting impact on economic growth and prosperity is a factor that all companies need to recognise and respond to.
As a major manufacturer, we recognise that all of our operations have an impact on the environment, from the energy and resources we use, to the products we manufacture and the waste we generate. We are committed to high standards of environmental management and undertake activities with the aim of reducing the environmental impact of our operations, products and supply chain. Such activities range from considering resource use on sites; to finding energy efficiencies in the design of major platforms; to controlling and reducing hazardous materials in the supply chain. Some of these activities aid in the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions that BAE Systems produces and, in turn, contribute towards mitigating climate change globally.
