Game-changing innovation will always be at the heart of Boeing. And just as our business has evolved to meet the challenges of a global marketplace, so has our approach to community engagement.
Through purposeful investments, employee engagement and thoughtful advocacy efforts, Boeing and its employees support innovative partnerships and programs that align with our strategic objectives, create value and help build better communities worldwide. This includes improving access to globally competitive learning as well as workforce and skills development, sustaining the environment, and supporting our military and veteran communities.

By leveraging our total resources, including corporate grants, partnerships with higher educational institutions and employee volunteerism, Boeing is committed to helping children and youth achieve their potential through educational enrichment and support programs that promote academic success, independence and economic sustainability, with a particular focus on science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM).
In the UK, Boeing proudly supports education projects such as The Schools Build a Plane Challenge and the Falcon Initiative in partnership with The Royal Aeronautical Society (RAeS), xl clubs and Get Started with Product Design with The Prince’s Trust, Flying Scholarships in collaboration with the Air League and Connecting STEM Teachers with the Royal Academy of Engineering.
The air itself is our element, so it’s not surprising that we maintain a deep commitment to protecting the natural resources we all share. Boeing’s focus on technology, innovation and environmental leadership, demonstrate our strategic drive to align everything we do - from community engagement to our products and services and our business practices - toward a cleaner world. Better environmental performance is not just good for the planet, it’s good for our business and for our communities worldwide.
As a committed, responsible environmental leader focused on healthy global growth, we collaborate with research institutions, customers, universities and governments to solve problems and educate our communities about the importance of environmental protection and preservation. Every day, thousands of Boeing employees around the world lead activities and projects that create continuous improvements in the areas of energy, water and materials conservation.
Going beyond financial support, Boeing employees across the UK share their time and skills to build better communities worldwide through mentorship, community service projects and board service to nonprofit organisations.
Global Month of Service, held every July, demonstrates how we can play a significant role in our global communities beyond our performance as a corporation. Every year thousands of employees around the world give their time and talents to support hundreds of projects that help communities thrive.
As a stakeholder in the success of our communities, we lead responsibly to help address challenges that are bigger than any one company’s interests. Our contributions and efforts are focused on making a significant difference in the lives of people around the world–now and for generations to come. We support organisations that are leaders in what they do, demonstrate innovation, and align and collaborate with others to achieve workable solutions to community issues. Our community investments are managed locally and grant making strategies are tailored to address the specific needs of the UK.
