It has achieved a 24% decrease in CO2 emissions since 2008, demonstrating a 42% reduction per dollar of revenue.

General Dynamics has already taken steps to reduce its emissions and is expected to continue doing so in the future. The company has made investments in emission reduction initiatives and has plans to collaborate on climate-related projects with specific supply chain members. The company expressed interest in the Sustainable Skies Act and other federal tax credits for SAF to members of Congress in 2021. Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) is a blend of agricultural waste and Jet-A fuel, containing lower sulfur and fewer fine particle pollutants compared to traditional Jet-A, contributing to reduced carbon emissions. If SAF is able to reduce lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions from conventional jet fuel by at least 50%, the legislation will offer a tax credit.

In conclusion, General Dynamics has set specific targets for its GHG emissions and is taking steps to reduce its emissions across scope 1, scope 2, and scope 3. In terms of GHG emissions per dollar of income, the company has achieved a 42% reduction.
