ESG Intelligence – Aerospace and Defence

The Global Defence & Aerospace sector sees a starkly negative end to 2020, with ongoing material risks related to Product Safety and Business Ethics heading into 2021. The most prominent company in both topics is Boeing, which has recently agreed to pay more than $2.5bn to settle a criminal probe with the US Justice Department. Action around Emissions and Energy Management drives positivity for top-performing companies including Honeywell, BAE Systems, Thales and Safran. These actions highlight that Aerospace & Defence companies are well-positioned to tackle climate change and support the transition to a low-carbon economy. Work around sustainable aviation fuels and electrification of flight present longer-term material opportunities for the sector.
