Air France - KLM launches a biofuel program dedicated to corporate customers
The Air France KLM Group has launched an innovative program that allows companies to play an active role in the future of sustainable travel.
Air France and KLM corporate customers, after estimating the CO₂ emissions associated with their trip, will be able to determine an annual contribution they want to dedicate to the Corporate SAF (Sustainable Aviation Fuel) program. All contributions from Air France and KLM will be invested in the supply and consumption of sustainable fuel. This will support the creation of a sustainable aviation fuel industry that guarantees increasingly environmentally friendly air transport.
By investing in this corporate program, companies are taking concrete steps to reduce COO emissions and contribute to the green transition of air transport by supporting innovative solutions.
Sustainable aviation fuels, fundamental levers for reducing CO₂ emissions
For many years, Air France and KLM have been involved in research and development programs in the field of alternative fuels. In 2011, the two airlines were among the first to operate commercial flights, demonstrating a possible alternative to fossil fuels.
Sustainable aviation fuels can be manufactured today from waste oils, waste products and forest residues. They can be incorporated into aircraft fuel without engine modifications. Their use can reduce emissions by more than 85% compared to conventional fuel. The main challenge today is to develop a sustainable industry to which corporate customers Air France and KLM will be able to make a concrete contribution.
At a time when awareness of climate issues is at the heart of many companies' strategy, the Air France-KLM program offers customers the opportunity to become actors in reducing CO₂ emissions.
Air France and KLM have been working for many years to reduce their environmental impact, ”said Henri de Peyrelongue, Executive Vice President of Commercial Sales, Air France-KLM. "The launch of the Corporate SAF program is further evidence of a strong commitment to concrete action. Through their contribution, our corporate customers will be the partners of tomorrow in an energy transition that can be fully in line with their more environmentally responsible travel policy. ".
