Airbus aims to help build a greener future by developing products and solutions that do not pollute or damage the environment.
As part of Airbus, Secure Land Communications (SLC) has adopted policies to ensure its products help rather than harm the environment:
SLC products and solutions make customers' operations more efficient, more effective and safer for field staff. A big part of that vision is environmental sustainability.
Eco-design plays a central role at each stage of the product life cycle — from design and manufacturing, to purchase and use, to end-of-life processing and disposal. For example:
These everyday environmental improvements are achieved through an Environmental Management System (EMS).
Airbus aims to improve energy efficiency by 10% and has developed various energy-saving products to achieve this.
As an example, the Taira TETRA server offers the same powerful features as the former DXT-series switches and the current DXTA server for big systems, yet is much smaller.
This saves site space, cooling demand and energy, dramatically reducing the Taira TETRA Server’s carbon footprint over its lifetime.
Airbus strives towards higher standards through voluntary agreements and certifications, aiming to offer its customers a growing range of high quality, responsibly designed products.
Airbus is taking big steps to reduce manufacturing and packing materials, as well as the energy used for manufacturing.
One example is packaging, which uses recyclable or responsibly sourced material whenever possible.
Airbus expects its suppliers to commit to sustainability and to adhere to similar good working standards and business ethics.
Airbus complies with all applicable environmental laws and policies. As such, it strives to build sustainable products and protect the safety and health of employees, customers and the public.
Global manufacturing partners and vendors must also follow sound environmental practices in their facilities, operations and the products they manufacture for Airbus.
Environmental responsibility is a global cause that requires us all to pitch in. That's why the ideas, capabilities and commitment of SLC’s 1,600+ employees around the world are crucial.
By continuously developing environmental policies and performance, and encouraging people to share their ideas, SLC and its partners and customers can work together to protect our environment.
