On September 29, 2020, CAE proudly became the first Canadian aerospace company to achieve carbon neutrality.
CAE accomplished this feat by combining aggressive efforts to reduce its own emissions and by making investments in projects that offset its remaining annual carbon emissions.
“This is a bold achievement and we hope that CAE’s commitment in the fight against climate change will inspire other companies to take tangible actions today,” said Marc Parent, President and CEO at CAE.
Mr. Parent highlighted CAE’s commitment to engage with Canada’s future generations, including working with industry towards the development of electric aircraft.
Says Navdeep Bains, Canada’s Minister of Innovation, Science and Industry:
“I am pleased to see Canadian companies demonstrating their leadership in the fight against climate change by working towards the green recovery of our aerospace industry. I would like to congratulate CAE for taking up this challenge. It is inspiring for both Canadian industry and future generations.”
