Build a sustainable future for aviation

Sustainable aviation fuel (often referred to as SAF) is critical for fossil emissions reduction for the aviation industry, including commercial airlines and air freight. We provide strategic guidance and diligence to accelerate and de-risk sustainable aviation fuel offtake.

The future of sustainable aviation fuel

Sustainable aviation fuel is crucial to reduce the climate impact of aviation. However, not all emerging options have the potential for high-volume, cost-effective production.

In a new report from Carbon Direct, written in partnership with Apple, we explore the pathways for scaling high-quality, low-climate impact sustainable aviation fuel. The report evaluates the full range of fuel types, carbon intensities, market conditions, and potential costs across the landscape of sustainable aviation fuels.

Corporate travel

Widespread adoption of sustainable aviation can play an essential role in reducing scope 3 emissions associated with business travel. For business travelers and their employers, flying with airlines that utilize sustainable aviation fuel and/or purchasing scope 3 attributes can meaningfully accelerate climate goals.
