Sustainable Aviation – A Bright Future For Propellers.
We are committed to working with our partners in the accelerated global quest for zero-carbon aviation by developing next generation propulsion technologies. Turboprop aircraft are already inherently more efficient than jet engines as they burn 25% less fuel per equivalent journey. As the preferred propulsor for the new electrified platforms currently under development, propeller technology offers greater feasibility and a far faster entry into service.
Thanks to our unique blade design, which offers both repairability and guaranteed longer service intervals, we generate less scrap than other manufacturers.
Our environmental footprint
As a part of GE Aviation, we are signatories to the UN Global Compact and committed to playing our part in creating a more sustainable future for generations to come. GE Aviation has set a goal to be carbon neutral for scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2030 and Dowty Propellers has a nine-year sustainability roadmap that elaborates on the journey to achieving that goal. Some of our current sustainability initiatives and activities are illustrated here.
