The Collins Aerospace Green Communities program helps fund environmental projects undertaken by nonprofit organizations and public entities, in partnership with Collins Aerospace employees and retirees. Projects eligible for grant awards must result in tangible improvement in the environmental condition of the community and have sustainable project benefits.

Examples include conservation of natural resources and raw materials, improvements to the environment concerning air, water, land and renewable energy and restoration or development of ecological habitat. The program strengthens our relationship with our communities and helps foster the diverse environmental interests of our employees.
