Gulfstream Aerospace once again was recognized by the Business Intelligence Group (BIG) with a Sustainability Leadership Award. BIG presents its Sustainability Awards annually to organizations that have made sustainability an integral part of their business practices. The awards recognize both for-profit and not-for-profit entities, as well as individuals, to help organizations gain exposure and reward their sustainability practices, according to BIG.

“For some ‘sustainability’ is an initiative, and for some, a mission,” said Maria Jimenez, chief nominations officer for BIG, as the awards were announced on Tuesday. “We are so proud to reward and recognize all of our winners and finalists who have made it their mission to help protect our environment.”

Gulfstream returned to the list this year after being honored in 2019. The Savannah, Georgia airframer has outlined numerous initiatives on the sustainability front—from using sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) in its daily operations since 2016, including with the G700 flight-test program, to becoming the first business jet manufacturer to offer SAF to its customer base in 2019. It also launched a carbon-offset program that year and has invested in new green technologies and facilities.
