Jeff Bird, CASI Ottawa
We have always addressed environmental issues in Aerospace, but the challenges facing us today demand a comprehensive “Sustainability Strategy”. Resource depletion, use of water and energy, creation of greenhouse gases, and our social license all threaten the aerospace industry’s ability to stay in business. The good news is that this challenge, like those faced in the past, can spur innovation and creative solutions that ensure we not only survive, but thrive!
Join us to hear the Pratt & Whitney journey, and how we developed our goal to become “The best Aerospace company FOR the world”.
A special section will be addressed to students and technical people starting on their careers, with ideas on how to make Sustainability part of your thinking and your career path.
