Air bp delivered 210 tonnes of sustainable
aviation fuel (SAF) to the Swedish airport operator, Swedavia, at
Stockholm Arlanda Airport (ARN/ESSA) on Tuesday.
Swedavia and its partners SOS Alarm, Systembolaget
and the 2030 Secretariat procured the fuel through a joint tender,
as part of an initiative to promote the large-scale production of
SAF and its use as a way to reduce carbon emissions from air
travel. The SAF delivered will result in a reduction in the carbon
emissions generated by the business’ corporate air travel.
bp began collaborating with Swedavia to help reduce emissions from
its corporate staff air travel in June 2019 when it supplied SAF
to five of its airports in Sweden including Stockholm Arlanda, Åre
Östersund, Malmö, Göteborg Landvetter and Umeå airports.
president and CEO, Swedavia, said, “Both Swedavia and the aviation
industry have been strongly affected by the COVID pandemic.
Despite current challenges our efforts to reduce the climate
change impact in the industry must continue and be prioritized.
Now is the opportunity to show our commitment to our climate
ambitions which remain intact and to the Swedish aviation
industry’s overall goal of all Swedish domestic flights being
fossil-free in 2030 and all flights in 2045.”
The SAF supplied by Air bp was produced by Neste, one
of the world’s leading producers of renewable fuels from wastes
