This guide is the main deliverable of the Greening the Aerospace Supply Chain project funded by the Green Aviation Research & Development Network’s second program (GARDN II). The project aimed to provide OEMs and tier one suppliers with the knowledge and capacity to
1) prioritize their green purchasing actions;
2) define green specifications for materials and technologies;
3) efficiently collect, manage and assess environmental information in their supply chain;
and 4) enable two-way communication and collaboration with suppliers to facilitate ecodesign throughout the supply chain.
Research partners included Bombardier, Bell, Pratt & Whitney Canada, Groupe AGÉCO and CIRAIG (Polytechnique Montréal). The project was also supported by the Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters. The brochure produced during the project, the GSCM Business Guide, can be used as a GSCM promotional tool for suppliers.
