Bombardier Aviation and the International EPD® System, an environmental declaration program based in Sweden, announced a first in business aviation with the publication of the Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for Bombardier’s Global 7500 jet.
Bombardier designed the state-of-the-art Global 7500 business jet using best-in-class technologies. The Global 7500 aircraft is powered by the all-new GE Passport engine, incorporating advanced technologies and materials to improve durability, deliver a lower noise output and improved fuel consumption. Additionally, its new high-speed transonic wing cuts down on drag, reduces fuel burn, and lowers emissions, offering a smooth ride, as well as excellent short-field and high-speed performance.
The International EPD® System is a program for voluntary and transparent communication of the life cycle environmental impact of goods and services. With more than 15 years of experience, and a library consisting of certified environmental product declarations from 31 countries, EPD serves as a credible choice for B2B and B2C communication based on ISO 14025 and other international standards. The program operator of the International EPD® System is EPD International AB, registered in Sweden.
