Business aviation organizations pledge to double sustainable fuel investment

A coalition of international business aviation organizations has joined government officials to redouble their focus on advancing the development and adoption of Sustainable Alternative Jet Fuel (SAJF).

The announcement, made at a media luncheon ahead of EBACE 2018, reflects the industry’s long-standing commitment to emissions reduction, including, among other aims, carbon neutrality from 2020 forward.

At the heart of this initiative is a new report titled Business Aviation Guide to the Use of Sustainable Alternative Fuel (SAJF), which focuses on raising awareness and the adoption of available and emerging sustainable alternative jet-fuel options; and providing guidance about SAJF as well as a roadmap for its use.

Three key points from the guide are that SAJF for business aviation is safe, approved, and available today, though in limited quantities; the fuels offer myriad benefits, including those in support of the sustainability of business aviation, corporate responsibility and reduced emissions; and the fuels are produced from multiple feedstocks, which are sustainable and renewable resources.

Juergen Wiese, chairman for the European Business Aviation Association (EBAA), said, “The EBAA is very proud to have contributed to this project, which will aim to increase the availability of sustainable alternative jet fuel, directly contributing toward our sector goals, and therefore reducing our overall environmental impact.”

Ed Bolen, president and CEO for the National Business Aviation Association (NBAA), added, “The business aviation community has a long and successful history of innovation when it comes to promoting the policies, products and procedures that reduce the industry’s carbon footprint. With this initiative, we underscore our effort on what has always been an important priority.”
