IBAC and ICAO partner to speed the uptake of SAF


Speeding the global uptake of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) is the aim of a new partnership forged by the International Business Aviation Council (IBAC) and the International Civil Aviation Orgainization (ICAO).

IBAC has joined ICAO’s Assistance, Capacity-building and Training for Sustainable Aviation Fuels (ACT-SAF) programme to train and educate companies on how to develop their full potential in SAF.

“The business aviation sector is known for innovation. We look forward to working with ICAO and other ACT-SAF participants to expand the development and use of SAF in greater quantities for use by all operators around the world,” said Kurt Edwards, director general, IBAC.

ICAO’s ACT-SAF programme involves monthly training sessions focusing on sustainability, environmental policy, economics and financing certification, as well as logistics relating to SAF.

Edwards signed the partnership agreement with Juan Carlos Salazar, secretary general, ICAO yesterday (March 29th) at ICAO headquarters in Montreal, Canada.
