Sustainability is at the core of everything we do
Paying close and thoughtful attention to sustainability is increasingly becoming indispensable for all industries; moreover, it has evolved into a deliberate organisational approach set to establish long-lasting concrete corporate standards. We at Deutsche Aircraft believe that a sustainable business conduct is the cornerstone of our success, short, medium and long-term and that this gives value for the society we live in. With our new D328ecoTM aircraft we are establishing easy access to affordable, energy-efficient, cost-effective and eco-friendly aircraft, moving towards a sustainable future through reshaping the means of world travel. Our fundamental responsibility is to diminish our ecological footprint, sustainable both economically and ecologically.
Deutsche Aircraft in Sustainable Development
The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of 17 interconnected goals which are an urgent call for action by all countries - developed and developing - in a global partnership. There is no doubt that the entire global aviation industry has an important role to support and carry forward these goals. Deutsche Aircraft is proud to be one of the flagships of the aviation industry in integrating sustainability at the very core of its organisational structure. We constantly strengthen and reinforce our activities to promote a greater holistic perspective of sustainability and have therefore chosen to focus on eight of the SDGs where we believe our actions will have a meaningful influence and will inspire others in our industry and beyond.
These are the eight SDGs Deutsche Aircraft is focusing on:
- Quality Education
- Gender Equality
- Affordable and Clean Energy
- Decent Work and Economic Growth
- Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
- Responsible Consumption and Production
- Climate Action
- Partnerships for the Goals
This article will highlight how Deutsche Aircraft implements three of the eight SDGs. Have a look at what our subject experts say.
Affordable and Clean Energy: Robert Schreiber, our Project Leader for Alternative Fuels, explains how Deutsche Aircraft works on how to integrate affordable and clean energy into our new aircraft, the D328ecoTM, defining Deutsche Aircraft’s aim of increasing the global use of alternative energies.
Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure: Florian Troeltsch, our Overall Aircraft Design Engineer, carries out a deep dive into our 328H2FC project, co-funded by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Climate Action (BMWK), focusing on the use of hydrogen to move towards our target of carbon-free cruise flight. Ingmar Geiss, our Senior Development Engineer, explains how Deutsche Aircraft uses innovative technologies move towards sustainable aviation.
Climate Action: Deutsche Aircraft carries out extensive research dedicated to understanding CO2 and non-CO2 emissions and appropriate measures to curtailing the climate impact caused by aviation. Fulya Keles, our Sustainable Aircraft Design and Operations Engineer, describes how Deutsche Aircraft works towards a climate-neutral future
