Bombardier CS100 aircraft receives environmental product declaration

International EPD System has issued an environmental product declaration for Bombardier´s (TSE: BBD) CS100 aircraft, the company said.

The EPD, which is based on verified life cycle analysis (LCA) data, discloses information about the life-cycle environmental impact of products and provides the basis for a fair comparison of products and services via their environmental performance.

Bombardier said the C Series aircraft consumes as little as two litres of fuel per 100 km per passenger. Over its operational lifespan, each C Series aircraft will reduce the amount of carbon dioxide emissions released to the atmosphere by up to 120,000 tonnes compared to other similarly-sized airliners.

International EPD System is an environmental declaration program based in Sweden, which offers communication of the life cycle environmental impact of goods and services.

Bombardier is a manufacturer of both planes and trains. Bombardier is headquartered in Montréal, Canada.
