What Corporate Responsibility means to us

Bombardier Belfast has an environmentally focused approach to product design and manufacturing processes. Ambitious energy conservation and carbon reduction programmes have made significant improvements to the environmental footprint of its Belfast sites. The company achieved joint first place in the 2014 ARENA Environmental Benchmarking Survey for environmental management, performance, and assurance.

Bombardier’s charitable foundation funds Northern Ireland-based initiatives, mainly in the areas of environment, education, and entrepreneurship, and it also supports employee volunteering in local communities.

The company’s award-winning educational programme works closely with primary and post-primary schools across Northern Ireland on aerospace-themed projects supporting the Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM) curriculum. Bombardier Belfast was one of the first companies in Northern Ireland to sign up to the government’s STEMNET initiative, aimed at inspiring young people about STEM. Up to 150 Bombardier STEM Ambassadors – from apprentices to senior management – promote STEM in schools.

Bombardier plays a key role in the Citywide Employers’ Forum and has helped more than 1,600 long-term unemployed find jobs.
