Abstract: Building on four decades of investment that made engines cleaner, quieter, and 
more efficient, the CFM RISE Program accelerates the development of uncompromising 
new propulsion technologies that will pave the way for the next generation of aircraft and an 
ever a more sustainable future. Technologies matured as part of the RISE Program will 
serve as the foundation for the next generation CFM engines that could be available by the 
mid-2030s. The program goals include reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions by 
more than 20 percent compared to today’s most efficient engines, as well as ensuring 
compatibility with alternative energy sources like Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF) and 
hydrogen to provide even further emission-reduction sustainability benefits
