Raytheon Technologies

Raytheon Technologies ranked No. 41 on The DiversityInc Top 50 Companies for Diversity list in 2022.

 

Pratt & Whitney, a Raytheon Technologies company, has announced two major milestones in its sustainability efforts. The company’s Geared Turbofan (GTF) engines have saved 1 billion gallons of fuel and 10 million metric tons of carbon emissions.

In the past year, Pratt & Whitney has improved the fuel efficiency of the engines, making it the best in its class. The next level of engines, the GTF Advantage engine, has also been successfully tested on 100% sustainable aviation fuel.

“GTF engines continue to deliver lower operational costs for our customers; new routes and revenue potential for airlines, airports and communities; and big savings in noise and emissions for passengers and our planet,” said Rick Deurloo, President of Commercial Engines at Pratt & Whitney.

The company has also improved CO2 emissions for the A32neo aircraft family.

“We’re the only engine company with a geared fan in commercial service,” said Deurloo. “With the GTF Advantage engine and these key technology development programs, our revolutionary architecture is at the heart of sustainable propulsion today and into the future.”
