Air France Initiative Promotes Development Of Aviation Biofuel

Working With Outside Partners To Promote Sustainable Fuel Industries

At the World Efficiency Fair in mid-December, Air France presented an Engagement for Green Growth (ECV) with the French Ministry for Ecological and Inclusive Transition, French Ministry of Transport and the French Ministry of Economy and Finance along with four other major French industrial groups Airbus, Safran, Suez and Total.

This ECV aims to promote the emergence of sustainable aviation biofuel industries, in economically viable conditions that fully integrate circular economy principles. The idea is to support and rapidly create the conditions for implementing these industries in France.

Air transport represents 2 percent to 3 percent of global man-made CO2 emissions. Sustainable aviation biofuel has been identified as one of the most promising ways to meet the ambitious targets of stabilizing CO2 emissions generated by global air transport as soon as 2020.  Over recent years, Air France has fully demonstrated the operational capacity of using sustainable biofuels, the fluidity of logistic operations, as well as its acceptance by passengers. However, the conditions necessary for developing French sustainable aviation biofuel industries are currently limited by several factors, including economic viability conditions and securing a sustainable biomass supply.

This ECV occurs one year after the ICAO’s adoption of a historic agreement concerning a global market mechanism for reducing air transport CO2 emissions. It confirms Air France’s commitment to adopt further ecological initiatives in support of green growth.

“Every day, Air France is committed to building the travel experience of the future. We want the experience to be enjoyable, innovative and responsible. I am very pleased to announce the signature of this ECV which confirms our commitment to reducing the environmental footprint of our activities and our active contribution to the air transport industry of the future,” stated Jean-Marc Janaillac, chairman and CEO of Air France-KLM and chairman of the Air France Board of Directors.
