Jet Aviation signs WEF’s ‘Clean Skies for Tomorrow’ statement
Jet Aviation has signed the World Economic Forum’s (WEF) ‘Clean Skies for Tomorrow’ statement, joining nearly 100 stakeholders from across aviation to accelerate and support the production and adoption of of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).
Clean Skies for Tomorrow strives to see SAF constitute 10% of the global fuel supply by 2030, which it sees as a major step towards net-zero aviation.
David Paddock, president, Jet Aviation said: “We believe collaboration is one of the best ways to bring innovative solutions to life and we are delighted to partner with WEF and other industry stakeholders to help increase the global supply of sustainable aviation fuel. SAF has strong potential to reduce the industry’s carbon footprint and increasing its availability helps bring us one step closer to making it the standard fuel for business aviation.”
The Swiss-based firm’s commitment to SAF use is not new. According to Jet Aviation, it was the first supplier to offer SAF via a blended fuel option at Van Nuys Airport in 2019. Then in collaboration with Neste and Zurich Airport, it imported a limited supply of SAF for WEF 2020. It was the first time SAF could be purchased in Switzerland.
Last year, Jet Aviation signed an agreement Neste to offer SAF on-site at its FBO in Amsterdam. The Switzerland-based firm also entered into an agreement with SkyNRG to offer SAF to customers universally through a Book and Claim service.
Paddock added: “We will continue to collaborate with partners around the world to foster solutions for a clean environment and we look forward to working with WEF and the industry to support Clean Skies for Tomorrow, and ultimately a carbon-neutral future.”
