Climate Action 2009-2010

Responsibility, made by

Responsibility, made by EADS. Evolving technology from Airbus that helps the A380 burn 17 per cent less fuel per seat than rival aircraft is just one way that EADS is balancing our need to travel with our need to safeguard the environment. Eurocopter is reducing noise pollution ahead of its competitors, and the SESAR programme will streamline Europe’s Air Traffic Control, improving noise levels, safety and fuel consumption. EADS makes the transport solutions the world needs. And helps to protect the things we value most. www.eads.com/madebyeads
