Dassault Aviation was recognized in the Financial Times first edition of “Europe’s Climate Leaders 2021” ranking that lists the 300 European companies that have achieved the greatest reduction in greenhouse gas emissions intensity between 2014 and 2019.

A joint initiative by the Financial Times and the institute Statista, the ranking is based on months of research, a review of existing emissions data, public calls for participation, and direct contact with thousands of companies, Dassault said. Companies listed were the “most successful in controlling their greenhouse gas emissions in relation to their revenues,” the French manufacturer added.

Dassault outlined a number of initiatives it has underway that are part of its long-term commitment to sustainability, including actively promoting the use of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). In addition, it is involved in the Clean Sky 2 European research initiative, as well as with France's civil aviation research council, which is focusing on lowering fuel consumption by reducing aircraft drag and weight.
