As a world leader in the aerospace industry, Boeing is doing more than designing the most advanced and energy-efficient products. We are also engaged in technologies and cooperative partnerships that will help ensure a safe and habitable global environment for our children.
The Boeing 787 Dreamliner will provide airlines with unmatched fuel efficiency, resulting in exceptional environmental performance. The airplane will use 20 percent less fuel for comparable missions than today's similarly sized airplane. It will also travel at speeds similar to today's fastest wide bodies, Mach 0.85. The features provide the economic and social benefits of modern air transportation, with the environmental benefits of quiet, fuel-efficient operation.
Above the earth, Boeing is the prime mover on the international team that is assembling the Space Station, designed to extend the reach of science into the Earth's envelope - the better to study and protect the Earth. Through Boeing satellite, communications and launch capabilities the earth's science community has ever-growing array of tools to solve the planet's most challenging technical and environmental problems.
