Our focus areas
Support education perseverance in Science, Technology, Engineering, Entrepreneurship and Mathematics (STEM), university collaboration and entrepreneurship.
Training for a Bright Future
In Canada, we fostered the next generation of aerospace professionals by donating a Global 7500 Flight Test Vehicle to Centennial College in Ontario, providing students with hands-on training experience with a technologically advanced, cutting-edge business jet. We also contributed $150,0003 for the completion of the college’s Landing Gear Research Project and the extension of the educational program.
Support sustainable development projects that enhance quality of life, encourage environmental responsibility and practices, and drive collaborative industry action for sustainability.
Promoting Environmental Stewardship
We continue to foster our long-term partnership with Grupo Ecologico Sierra Gorda IAP, a community organization working to protect the Sierra Gorda Biosphere Reserve in Mexico. Since 2017, our support has been focused on reducing CO2 emissions from our operations through a voluntary carbon offset project. In 2019, we helped protect 250 hectares, capturing a total of 1,250 tons of CO2.
Support opportunities to maintain and develop responsible business relationships with key industry stakeholders and shine as an active member of the business community.
Fighting the COVID-19 Pandemic
In early 2020, we deployed resources and capacities to help support public authorities in the fight against COVID-19. In particular, we designed and produced more than 40,000 protective visors, supported the manufacturing more than 30,000 ventilators and donated thousands of gloves and masks from our inventories. Our aircraft, including our Global 6500 demonstration aircraft, were also utilized for humanitarian and medical transport worldwide.
