Focus areas

Progressing toward decarbonizing aviation. We are improving the efficiency of existing engines and minimizing weight through optimized design of aircraft parts.
Decarbonizing our operations. We are developing next-generation technologies to optimize air traffic control and ground operations. 
Minimizing resource usage. We are conserving natural resources in the design, manufacture, use and disposal of our products and the delivery of our services. 
Collaborating with suppliers. We are supporting the efforts of airframers and other industry partners to improve efficiency and operations. 

On the path to decarbonize aviation

The future of sustainable aerospace hinges on multiple, distinct technologies – some of which are just now emerging. As breakthrough aerospace technologies are developed, their safety must be rigorously tested before they enter into service. This maturation process will take time, which is why Raytheon Technologies has a broad portfolio of solutions at varying levels of maturity to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions in the aerospace sector now and in the future.
