Our Principles

Our Vision

Vision

Boeing is a company of amazing people working in one of the most exciting industries in the world. When you consider our many accomplishments -- from designing and building the earliest biplanes to creating and supporting today's supersonic aircraft and spacecraft -- you might think we would be content with how far we've come. But a company of our size and scope doesn't succeed by resting on its laurels; we are constantly re-examining our capabilities and processes to ensure that our company is as strong and vital as our heritage. In fact, our culture mirrors the heritage of aviation itself, built on a foundation of innovation, aspiration and imagination.

Environment, Health & Safety

Safety

Our products are at home in the skies, but they're built on the ground. Naturally, we have a deep commitment to using the technology and innovation we're known for to benefit the environment.


Boeing and the Environment: The value of supplier collaboration
As a global aerospace leader, The Boeing Company recognizes its responsibility to build a sustainable future for its communities, employees, customers and investors. Boeing is committed to operating in a manner that promotes environmental stewardship.

Boeing has a long record of improving the environmental performance of our products and our own manufacturing processes. Boeing's life-cycle view seeks improvements through all stages of our product's life - beginning with our suppliers, through in-service use, all the way to end-of-life recycling or recovery.
In working with suppliers, we've recognized that there is great opportunity to go beyond current information-sharing activities. We are therefore developing a more systematic program of collaboration and engagement between Boeing and its suppliers in the area of environmental practices.

Ethics

Ethics

Ensuring that our values remain foundational to our work requires a daily commitment from every Boeing employee. This clear message on the importance of integrity in everything we do is delivered by Boeing’s chairman during an annual live broadcast to every employee, and by other senior leaders in various internal and external forums.

While each employee is accountable for upholding the code of conduct and following all applicable laws, regulations and company policies, Boeing advances its unified approach to ethics and compliance through the integration of key functions: Ethics and Business Conduct; Global Trade Controls; Corporate Audit; Compliance Risk Management; Corporate & Administrative Services which maintains an enterprise system for all policies, procedures and processes; and, the company’s Shared Services group.

These functions and operating groups constitute the Boeing Office of Internal Governance and Administration and represent over 7,500 employees worldwide, including more than 7,000 employees who work in Shared Services. As an integrated organization, this global team ensures the effective and efficient support across Boeing’s businesses through implementation of the company’s internal governance policies and plans, as well as providing common infrastructure and services.

This structure creates a sustainable advantage for Boeing by enabling compliant company performance that is embedded consistently across all geographic locations while building on the company’s 100 year old legacy of integrity.

Human Rights

The Code of Basic Working Conditions and Human Rights represents the commitment of The Boeing Company to fundamental standards that make Boeing a good place to work. People are Boeing's most vital asset. The individual and collective contributions of Boeing people at all levels are essential to the success of the company. In recognition of this, Boeing has developed policies and practices designed to assure that our employees enjoy the protections afforded by the concepts set forth in the Code.

Supplier Diversity

Diversity

At Boeing, we are committed to Global Diversity. Our collective global talent includes the unique qualities that each employee brings to Boeing. We also value our small and diverse business partners for the innovation and flexibility they bring to our supply base. In CY 2014, Boeing awarded over $5B to our first tier small, small disadvantaged, women and veteran owned small businesses etc.

We continue to seek out and provide maximum opportunities to small and diverse businesses as they are a vital part of maintaining our competitiveness in the global marketplace.
