At United Technologies, we’re defining what green aviation means. Whether it’s reducing the environmental footprint of our manufacturing facilities on the ground, developing innovative and integrated technologies in laboratories across the globe or providing quieter, cleaner, more efficient products on aircraft in the skies, we are committed to growing our industry sustainably.

Global Dialogue

As a leader in green aviation, United Technologies is advancing the global dialogue – for everything from groundbreaking technologies, to innovative manufacturing processes, to conservation efforts in our facilities.

commitment to data

Through its participation in aviation industry organizations, United Technologies is supporting thought leadership that explores opportunities for the aviation industry to grow sustainability. Our white papers highlight our contributions in taking sustainable aviation further – and higher – than ever before.

Our Approach

Our approach to green aviation stretches from ground level to 30,000 feet and beyond. It starts in green manufacturing facilities and continues with products in the air, including Pratt & Whitney’s PurePower® Geared Turbofan™ jet engine family, which delivers game-changing reductions in fuel burn, environmental emissions, jet engine noise and operating costs. UTC Aerospace Systems’ electric driven generators and actuators, efficient climate control systems, LED cabin lights and carbon brakes are helping to make aircraft lighter and more fuel efficient. Leveraging their unique expertise, Pratt & Whitney and UTC Aerospace Systems are joining together to develop integrated nacelle technology that will accommodate the larger fan size of the PurePower® Geared Turbofan™ jet engine while significantly reducing jet engine fuel burn and noise.
