Published

Over the past 30-year period, KLM has already taken numerous steps to make aviation more sustainable. Sustainable operations, innovation and cooperation with other parties continue to play a crucial role in our industry. Scaling up the production of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) is essential if we are to achieve our CO2-reduction targets.

KLM forms part of the Clean Skies for Tomorrow (CST) coalition, which was established within the World Economic Forum to ensure the availability of sufficient SAF to be able to fly CO2-neutral by the middle of this century. In addition to KLM, the coalition consists of other leading players in the airline industry such as Airbus Group, the Boeing Company, Schiphol, Neste, Shell, SkyNRG and Heathrow Airport.

SAF indispensable to zero-emissions airline industry
In cooperation with McKinsey & Company, the coalition compiled the “Sustainable Aviation Fuels as a Pathway to Net-Zero Aviation” report, which focuses on themes such as the availability of raw materials and their sustainability, production capacity and the technological possibilities of the most promising SAF production paths. The report was published on 11 November.

Accelerating the transition to SAF
The report was in part produced based on input from the coalition partners. As a knowledge document, it also serves as a good basis for cooperation in the field of SAF between organisations active within and in areas related to the airline industry. The aim is to accelerate the transition to SAF.
