Bombardier Publishes its Annual CSR Report, Shaping the Future of Mobility, 
Responsibly 
MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwired) -- 05/13/13 -- Bombardier Inc.
(TSX:BBD.A)(TSX:BBD.B) published its 2012 Corporate Social
Responsibility (CSR) Report and Report Summary, entitled Shaping the
Future of Mobility, Responsibly, presenting the company's CSR
activities over the past year. 
"For us, 2012 was a year of great progress in the Evolution of
Mobility," said Pierre Beaudoin, President and Chief Executive
Officer, Bombardier Inc. "While there were some challenges - as all
members of our industry still cope with heightened economic
uncertainty - it was still a year of innovation and achievements."  
"We are excited about the environmental potential of our products,
but also the promise they hold for communities. In this age of
urbanization and globalization, we provide affordable and
environmentally-efficient mobility solutions for cities - large and
small - to connect to one another. This brings new opportunities and
experiences to communities and businesses that may not have
previously been connected to the global network," concluded Mr.
Beaudoin.  
In 2012, key achievements in CSR included:  


 
--  sixth consecutive year listing on both the Dow Jones Sustainability
    North America and World Indices, benchmark indicators of sustainability.
    Bombardier was also awarded Sector Leader, considered to be the company
    within its sector best prepared to seize the opportunities and manage
    risks derived from economic, environmental and social developments. 
    
--  developing the first-ever Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) in the
    aerospace industry to help customers understand the environmental impact
    of the CSeries family of aircraft, to be issued in 2014 to coincide with
    the aircraft's entry-into-service. Bombardier Transportation published
    two EPDs in 2012 for the TALENT 2 train and FLEXITY Outlook tram. 
    
--  administering the annual Employee Engagement Survey and achieving
    engagement scores approaching best-in-class. For the first time, the
    survey was aligned across all locations globally. 
    
--  increasing focus on human rights. In early 2013, Bombardier developed a
    formal statement that better defines how
 human rights are addressed and
    respected across the company. 
    
--  providing procurement managers across the enterprise with tools and
    training enabling them to complete CSR spot-checks of key suppliers,
    supporting compliance with the Bombardier Supplier Code of Conduct. The
    Code must be adhered to by all suppliers at Bombardier Aerospace and all
    master vendors at Bombardier Transportation (representing 80% of
    procurement spend) that sign contracts with Bombardier. 
    
--  achieving a 12.6% decrease in accident frequency rate and a 17.2%
    decrease in accident severity rate since 2011. 
    
--  achieving a 1.5% decrease in energy consumption, a 0.8% decrease in
    greenhouse gas emissions, a 7.2% decrease in water consumption since
    2011. 
    
--  continuing to focus giving around the Bombardier 3E approach: Education,
    Environment and Entrepreneurship, which aligns the organization's
    community involvement with its core values and competencies, and
    updating the Donations, Sponsorships, and Employee Volunteering Policy
    to include program guidelines and human resources criteria for employee
    volunteering.
