The business aviation community has long been dedicated to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from aircraft,
with a proven record of advances in carbon reduction. As a result, the industry is on track to meet the aspirational goals it set for itself in 2009, to reach carbon-neutral growth by 2020. Key to reaching this goal has been the research, development, production, and use of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).
The SAF initiative, developed by a coalition of international aviation organizations, was created, first, to address a "knowledge gap" on the availability and safety of SAF and, second, to advance the proliferation of alternative jet fuels at all the logical touchpoints: the manufacturers, the ground handlers and the operators, at the regional, national and international levels.
