Bombardier CS100 Receives Industry-First Environmental Product Declaration

Provides Detailed Information About The Aircraft's Life-Cycle Environmental Impact

Bombardier Commercial Aircraft and the International EPD System, an environmental declaration program based in Sweden, announced today a first in the aerospace industry with the publication of the Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) for Bombardier's CS100 aircraft. The EPD, which is based on verified Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) data, discloses information about the life-cycle environmental impact of products and, thus provides the basis for a fair comparison of products and services vis-à-vis their environmental performance.

The news was published during the 2016 World Aviation Forum hosted by the International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) in Montréal. This year's Forum focused on "Aviation Partnerships for Sustainable Development" and was held on the eve of ICAO's 39th Triennial Assembly being held from September 27 to October 7.

"Bombardier is delighted to announce the Environmental Product Declaration for the CS100 aircraft during ICAO's World Aviation Forum," said Fred Cromer, President, Bombardier Commercial Aircraft. "ICAO is widely recognized as the leading organization pursuing unified and coordinated measures to reduce civil aviation's impact on the environment, and Bombardier is proud to be the first in the aerospace industry to release an EPD®. Sustainability is a key factor guiding our thoughts and business processes, and the C Series family of aircraft is testament to our commitment to a greener future for aviation. We thank our suppliers whose ongoing contributions are immensely valuable."

"The publication of the EPD is another C Series aircraft program milestone that reflects Bombardier's focus on industry-leading product innovation, commitment to environmentally sustainable business practices, and determination to exceed customers' expectations," said François Caza, Vice President, Product Development and Chief Engineer and Head of Bombardier's Design Approval Organization. "Led by our Eco-Design team, our product innovation life-cycle process - from the design and manufacture of the aircraft to its end-of-life - was applied throughout the development of the C Series family of aircraft to minimize the airliners' impact on the environment."

"We are very happy to see this first EPD registration from a company in the aerospace industry. This really shows that EPDs are applicable for manufacturers of complex products, when they have a commitment to clear communication of environmental performance," said Elin Eriksson, Chair, EPD International AB.

The C Series aircraft consumes as little as two litres of fuel per 100 km per passenger. This means that over its operational lifespan, each C Series aircraft will reduce the amount of carbon dioxide emissions released to the atmosphere by up to 120,000 tonnes compared to other similarly-sized airliners. That is equivalent to taking more than 32,000 mid-sized cars off the road for a year. The C Series aircraft`s noise signature is comparable to smaller airliners, such as regional aircraft, making it an ideal solution for urban operations and the most community-friendly aircraft in the 100- to 150-seat category.
