SINGAPORE, Feb. 19, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- (SINGAPORE AIRSHOW) -- Collins Aerospace, an RTX (NYSE: RTX) business, today announced its facility in Tanauan City, Philippines is now operating on 100% renewable electricity.

Collins' facility in Tanauan City, Philippines is now operating on 100 percent renewable electricity.

"We're committed to reducing the greenhouse gas emissions of our manufacturing operations," said LeAnn Ridgeway, chief sustainability officer for Collins. "By switching to 100% renewable electricity, our Tanauan City site will lower Collins' greenhouse gas emissions by roughly 25,000 metric tons each year.
