SUSTAINABILITY:
A CLEAR AMBITION



Though air travel is still one of the most environmentally efficient modes of travel, there are still challenges for the industry to do even better. For nearly five decades, CFM International has invested in technologies to make our engines cleaner, quieter, and more efficient.

CFM has introduced new technologies into mature fleets, helping customers improve fuel efficiency, lower CO2 and NOx emissions, and reduce noise, thus limiting the impact these engines have on the environment, and while also reducing lifecycle costs.


Sustainability
is at the heart of our business


Although CFM products comply with the highest standards set by ICAO, we are committed to do even more.

RISE

The CFM International RISE (Revolutionary Innovation for Sustainable Engines) Technology Demonstration Program was launched on June 14, 2021.

Goals include reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by more than 20 percent compared to today’s most efficient engines.


Open fan architecture:
a step change in propulsion efficiency

The pursuit of ever-increasing propulsive efficiency has driven the growth of engine fan diameter in commercial jet engines over the past five decades. This progression is ultimately leading to the open fan concept, which is currently the most efficient and sustainable option to improve engine propulsive efficiency.

CFM56, A LEGEND
IN AIRCRAFT POWER



40 years after entering commercial service, in 1982, the CFM56 family is the best-selling engine in commercial aviation history.


  • Offers dispatch reliability of nearly 100%.

  • The most reliable engine family in its thrust class.

  • The world’s most robust aircraft engine, featuring unrivaled time on wing (without removal for servicing).

  • Thrust range from 18,500 to 32,000 pounds.

  • Powers aircraft for more than 600 operators worldwide.

  • A CFM56-powered aircraft takes off somewhere in the world every 2 seconds (pre-Covid).

  • 33,800+ CFM56 engines delivered.

  • 1+ billion engine flight hours.






CFM56-5B

The CFM56-5B, a high-performance, low-risk derivative engine of the CFM56 family, is the only engine that can power every model of the A320ceo family with one bill of materials. Its simple, rugged architecture gives it the highest reliability, durability and repairability in its class.

CFM56-7B

The CFM56-7B is the exclusive engine for the Boeing 737 Next-Generation jetliner and its military variants. The engine’s global success is due to its outstanding reliability and environmental-friendliness, low cost of ownership, and world-class customer support.

DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION
TO SUPPORT OUR
PRODUCTION CHALLENGE



To meet the initial challenges of ramping up LEAP engine production, GE and Safran Aircraft Engines leaned into the robustness of their proven CFM56 capability and expanded it with optimized processes, innovative technologies, a streamlined supplier base, and expanded capacity.

The LEAP supply chain is based on a careful selection of suppliers, including criteria such as the ability to keep pace with the ramp-up in production, while meeting quality, cost and on-time delivery requirements.

Safran Aircraft Engines and GE have invested heavily to meet these goals, including new facilities worldwide. Both parent companies have modernized and expanded their industrial facilities to meet the challenge, establishing Digital Transformation through automated lines, closed-door machining and robotics.
