SUSTAINABILITY BY DESIGN
Gulfstream’s innovative, clean wing designs deliver a combination of record-breaking speed and range, exceptional comfort, and better aerodynamic efficiency for a smaller carbon footprint. The wings of the Gulfstream G500™, G600™, G650™, G650ER™ and G700™ are manufactured on-site, decreasing transportation emissions and packaging waste.
State-of-the-art engines across our fleet decrease fuel usage, produce fewer greenhouse gases, and are central to our unparalleled achievements in engine noise reduction, which means minimized disruption to communities and ecosystems worldwide.
LEADING THE INDUSTRY
Gulfstream’s Enhanced Flight Vision System (EFVS) allows authorized pilots to land in low-visibility conditions, increasing efficiency by reducing go-arounds and saving fuel and time. In 2018, we became the world’s first aerospace company to certify EFVS for touchdown and rollout.
DRIVEN BY R&D
Across our 626,743 square feet/58,226 square meters of research and development facilities, we provide the industry’s leading talent with the space, tools and state-of-the-art technology to innovate for future flight. This steadfast investment in our labs—for development, training and human factors testing—reduces in-air flight-test hours, thus reducing carbon emissions.
At Gulfstream, we’re building for the future. At our Savannah headquarters, multiple facilities have LEED certifications for design, materials and technologies that drastically reduce water and energy usage.
The future of business travel is powered by sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). Throughout its lifecycle, SAF achieves at least 60% reduction in carbon dioxide emissions per gallon, compared to petroleum-based jet fuel. Since 2016, we have used this cleaner alternative in daily operations including the Gulfstream G700 flight-test program. In 2019, we became the first business jet manufacturer to make SAF available to customers.
CARBON NEUTRAL TRAVEL
We take pride in raising the bar for eco-conscious business travel, and we invite our customers to take part in that achievement. In 2019, we launched a service that allows operators to pay a usage-based annual fee toward activities that generate an equal reduction in carbon emissions, helping to offset the carbon footprint of their flights.
