Community

The Boeing Company is leading the aerospace industry into the next century, as we have done for the first 100 years of the company’s operations and we know that what we do at Boeing has a global impact. We recognize that our pursuit of that vision has significant impact on the individual communities where we live and work as well.

Boeing’s 2012 Corporate Citizenship report reflects some of the ways the company and its employees honour — and extend — the Boeing legacy by helping communities build a better future every day. We hope the stories about our dedicated people and our partners’ efforts will inspire others to take those small and large steps that lead to making a difference now and for generations to come.

In the UK, Boeing proudly supports education and environment projects such as The Schools Build a Plane Challenge in partnership with The Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS), xl clubs with The Prince’s Trust, Flying Scholarships in collaboration with the Air League, The National Memorial Arboretum and The Earth Restoration Service. We contribute to global activities such as Earth Day and Boeing's Global Month of Service. Boeing also supports the We Made It! campaign with Members of Parliament aiming to engage more young people with the UK manufacturing sector.

“We believe that companies like ours must play a significant role as citizens beyond our role as corporations. We must lead responsibly to help our communities, our nations and the world address challenges that are bigger than any one company’s interests. That includes bringing problem-solvers together, focusing them on action that helps communities grow, and helping communities develop the resources that sustain and attract people who choose to live, work, learn and play in them.”
- Jim McNerney, chairman, president and CEO, The Boeing Company.
