WASHINGTON, D.C., Dec. 28, 2020— Boeing [NYSE: BA] today released the following statement:

The standard is one of the essential pillars of the industry’s strategy to cut net global aviation emissions to half of what they were in 2005 by 2050. Aviation is one of only two industrial sectors that has adopted global CO2 goals, underscoring our steadfast commitment to our communities and the planet.”
