ESG Information and Resources
The merger of Raytheon Company and United Technologies’ aerospace businesses created the world’s most advanced aerospace and defense systems provider – and a company that believes it has the responsibility to change the world for the better.
From improving the fuel efficiency and safety of commercial airline travel to building smarter defense systems to counter sophisticated security threats, we owe it to our industry, our customers and all end users of our technology to address these tough challenges.
This responsibility also extends far beyond our business operations. We are committed to dedicating our resources and our talent to help meet the needs of our communities and to build a better future together.
This page includes environmental, social and governance (ESG) information and disclosures that support our approach to sustainability.
2020 marks our first disclosure aligning with the framework of the Sustainability Accounting Standards Board (SASB). It follows disclosure and accountability guidance for the aerospace and defense industry, which most closely aligns with the operations of Raytheon Technologies. Our expectation is that these disclosures will continue to mature with time.
CDP Climate Change Response
Raytheon Technologies is helping combat climate change by reducing its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, enhancing energy efficiency and optimizing our manufacturing processes. We have measured, tracked and publicly reported our GHGs for the last 15 years, and have been recognized by numerous organizations for our commitment and performance. We participate in the voluntary global climate disclosure system called CDP (formerly Carbon Disclosure Project), and respond to their annual climate change questionnaire. Our detailed response addresses issues of governance, climate strategy, climate risks and opportunities, greenhouse gas emissions, accounting methodologies and goals. It also addresses many of the disclosure elements of the Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD).
Environment, Health and Safety
Raytheon Technologies’ legacy companies each had longstanding histories of excellence as leaders in EH&S management, and as a merged company we’ve renewed that commitment. Building on best practices, we have created a new set of EH&S principles, a management system and sustainability goals for the year 2025.
Social responsibility drives the investments we make in our people and the diverse and united workplace we build. Through transformative investments, we are committed to dedicating resources and talent to help meet the needs of our communities and to build a better future together.
