About Us

The Business Aviation Coalition for Sustainable Aviation Fuel, developed by a coalition of international aviation organizations, was created to address a “knowledge gap” on the availability and safety of SAF and 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.


The Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) Initiative focuses on emissions reduction through investment and innovation. The industry’s commitment to emissions reduction was further codified through the Business Aviation Commitment on Climate Change, with three aspirational goals contained in the commitment:


average improvement in efficiency per year from 2020 to 2030

Carbon neutral growth from 2020 onwards

Net Zero CO2

in carbon emissions by 2050


The business aviation community has long been committed to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from aircraft, with a proven record of advances in carbon reduction. The industry has continually promoted investment in, and development of, innovative products, procedures and policies aimed at reducing its environmental footprint.

Our goals will be met through advancements in four pillars.

More efficient operations
Continuing Infrastructure Improvements
Marked-based measures
Technology, including the development of alternative aircraft fuels

Continually Working Toward a Lower-Carbon Future

Fueling the Future is an educational and informational resource guide created by the SAF Coalition about the practicalities of SAF development, industry adoption, and pending expansion of supply and use, primarily from the perspectives of the business aviation community. Check out Fueling the Future to learn about the many benefits of SAF and how to get access to safe, sustainable fuel today.
