Sustainability & Environment

Cleaner, quieter air travel.

Though air travel is still one of the most environmentally efficient modes of travel, there are still challenges for the industry. As the producer of the world’s most best-selling engine, CFM has invested in and introduced new technologies into mature fleets, helping customers improve fuel efficiency, reduce impact on the environment, and reduce lifecycle costs. The newest LEAP engine meets today’s environmental expectations, delivering a 15% fuel improvement, 50% lower NOx emissions* and a 75% reduction in noise versus today's aircraft.
