GKN Aerospace joins Defence Aviation Net Zero Strategy


At GKN Aerospace, it is our mission to be the most trusted and sustainable partner in the sky, and we are proud to announce our participation in the Defence Aviation Net Zero Strategy.

The Defence Aviation Net Zero Strategy serves as a comprehensive roadmap, outlining essential steps to achieve carbon neutrality in the aviation domain. Not only does this strategy help reduce the environmental impact, but it also safeguards operational effectiveness in the face of climate change-induced challenges. By fostering a collaborative environment led jointly by the Royal Air Force and industry, we can build a stronger, more resilient future.

At GKN sustainability sits at the heart of our business. Our decisions, initiatives, and projects prioritize long-term value creation, while generating positive economic, social, and environmental impacts for our business and the broader community. Becoming a signatory of the Defence Aviation Net Zero Strategy further underscores our dedication to our people, our planet, and the prosperity of the UK. The fact that GKN is the only Tier One company to sign this inaugural charter is testament to our commitment and developing position in UK Defence.

We are excited to be a part of this transformative journey towards a greener and more sustainable aviation industry. Through our collective efforts, we are confident in making a lasting difference in the world around us.
