Net-zero carbon

We are the first commercial aircraft manufacturer to incorporate sustainability from day one. Our approach extends from how we design and test our aircraft to how we operate our production facility and aircraft recycling.

Boom’s 2021 Environmental Sustainability Report

Travel is a net good for humanity. It connects us, drives economic growth, and fosters global exchange. Boom’s 2021 report details our holistic approach to environmental well-being and commitment to a scalable and sustainable future for travel.

“Our vision is to make the world more accessible. It’s fundamental that we take great care of it, too.”

Blake Scholl



A more sustainable future of travel

“United continues on its trajectory to build a more innovative, sustainable airline and today’s advancements in technology are making it more viable for that to include supersonic planes.”

Scott Kirby

Accelerating innovation with Rolls-Royce

“We’re committed to a net zero carbon future for all of our products, both existing and future. Supersonic travel and the technologies associated with it are part of that value proposition.”

Simon Carlisle


The world’s fastest and most sustainable airliner


Maximized fuel efficiency

An aircraft’s fuel efficiency directly translates to how sustainably it operates. We’re applying lessons from XB-1 to ensure Overture’s design is maximized for sustainable performance.


Emissions and noise reduction

Overture’s fleet will be able to run on 100% sustainable aviation fuels. We are minimizing community noise impacts and Overture will blend in with the quietest of today’s long-haul fleet.


Repurposed material

Our manufacturing process is built for resource efficiency. We repurpose tooling and utilize 3D printing to save material and resources.



Overture’s LEED-certified production facility will leverage clean electricity generation and facilitate waste-minimizing assembly.


Zero overland noise impacts

We’re designing Overture with noise-sensitive communities in mind, to meet or exceed all current and anticipated noise rules.


Design for recycling

We consider an aircraft’s entire lifecycle even before assembly begins. Overture is designed for ease of dismantling and minimization of waste.

The Sustainable Travel Forum brings together industry leaders across travel, tourism, and aviation sectors under a collective mission: to build the future of sustainable travel.
