    Yes, it's possible, I work in aerospace and frequently deal with environmental engineers and scientists. For example, environmental scientists helped develop environmental assessments for testing of the Joint Strike Fighter; see the link below. No major aerospace manufacturer or program can exist without complying with envrionmental laws.

    Most of the environmental scientists I know are trained and degreed as civil or environmental engineers or in the natural sciences such as biology, chemistry and geology.

    Absolutely. In any big project from making a power plant to building a factory or in your case designing and making a new aircraft, Environmental Scientists play a huge role. Most of these projects have to have approvals from different agencies. as an example EIR (Environmental Impact Review) is a critical document in many projects and its development requires biologists, archeologist's, and many other scientists to work together.

    I specifically know that Boeing and other Aircraft manufacturers have to have approvals on the level of emission that their air crafts are going to make before they can start producing them.

    Hope this helps.

    Good Luck !

    Absolutely. There is currently so much trash floating around in orbit, some astro- environmental scientists will soon be employed for developing the black holes needed to be utilized for "Space-Fills". Early on they were thinking about just shooting it off to the Sun, but now they are afraid they might put it out.

    No, regular business doesn't care about that stuff. They only care if the government forces them to.
