Pratt & Whitney, a world leader in aircraft propulsion technology, is committed to supporting its airline customers to achieve their goal of net zero CO2 emissions by 2050. Pratt & Whitney’s strategy for powering sustainable aviation focuses on advancing smarter technologies, enabling aviation’s transition towards cleaner fuels, and protecting the environment through greener business and manufacturing practices.
With the Pratt & Whitney GTF™ engine, the company pioneered a revolutionary geared fan architecture that cuts fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by 16-20% for the latest generation of single-aisle aircraft. Since entering service in 2016, the engine has helped airlines save more than a billion gallons (nearly four billion liters) of fuel and avoid more than ten million metric tons of CO2 emissions. GTF engines offer world-class operating costs while also reducing NOx emissions up to 50% and noise footprint up to 75%.
Pratt & Whitney is developing a broad range of technologies to continually improve aircraft efficiency, including next-generation GTF systems, advanced materials and hybrid-electric propulsion.
