WEF: Coalition of 60 companies set target of 10% SAF use by 2030

    World Economic Forum (WEF) announced (22-Sep-2021) its Clean Skies for Tomorrow Coalition, a group with a mission to accelerate the deployment of sustainable aviation fuels (SAF), launched its 2030 ambition statement, to accelerate the supply and use of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) to reach 10% of global jet aviation fuel supply by 2030. 60 companies have agreed to work together to move the aviation industry along towards its objective of net-zero emissions by 2050. Key signatories include:

    To make this concerted effort possible, the Clean Skies for Tomorrow Coalition has developed a Sustainable Aviation Fuel Certificate (SAFc) system, a new accounting tool that will allow SAF emissions reductions to be claimed by travellers and cargo customers if they are willing to cover the higher costs. The proposed system also handles fuel supply chain logistics by delivering SAF stock to airports nearest the production plants. With existing technologies and digital demand platforms such as the SAFc, best-practice sustainable aviation can reduce GHG emissions on a lifecycle basis by up to 80%. [more – original PR]
