Growing the aviation/aerospace industry while caring for our environment is a major technical and business challenge. Government and industry organizations around the world are allocating vast resources to maximize efficiency and satisfy global demand while also meeting our responsibilities to future generations. To propel this movement, forward-thinking experts are urgently needed.

FAA programs such as the Noise Compatibility Program and Voluntary Airport Low Emissions (VALE) Program assist airports in realizing stable levels of economic growth and developing social programs consistent with the needs and values of their local communities, thus reducing environmental impacts.

In this Aviation and Aerospace Sustainability online graduate program from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University , you will explore how technical advances and improved management practices can help companies meet both operational and environmental goals.
