Manufacturing & Transportation


Robert Cadieux

Fellow, Manager, Environment and Sustainable Devlopment, Pratt & Whitney Canada

On average and for at least the last 7 years, each year P&WC had reduced its yearly GhG emissions by 2.5%, total industrial waste by 4%, non recycled waste by 6%, non GhG air emissions by 6% and water consumption by 4%. All of the reductions have been achieved in absolute terms without normalisation to growth, which has been 1% per year during the same period. While Robert has been the prime driver for many of these successes, the biggest impact has come through P&WC’s success in making its airplane engines increasingly efficient.
