Neste has acquired a minority stake in Aircraft Fuel Supply (AFS).
AFS is the owner and operator of the Amsterdam Airport Schiphol fuel storage company.
Through its share in AFS, one of the world’s leading provider of renewable diesel and sustainable aviation fuel will be able to offer to airlines operating at Schiphol supply of Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel with immediate effect.
Neste’s SAF is made from sustainably sourced, renewable waste and residue raw materials.
“Our ambition is to become a global leader in renewable and circular solutions. We are committed to supporting our customers to meet their ambitious climate and carbon neutrality targets and reduce greenhouse gas emissions with our sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). Acquiring a share in AFS is an important milestone in expanding the supply of SAF at a major global airport,” said Neste’s president and CEO Peter Vanacker.
Inge Stegmann, CEO of AFS, added: “AFS is very pleased with this new shareholder and to contribute to a sustainable aviation industry.”
Thorsten Lange, executive vice president for Renewable Aviation at Neste, continued: “We are extremely proud to be growing and securing the availability of SAF at Schiphol. In doing so, we will support airlines in reaching their emission reduction targets. Front-runner airlines Schiphol can really make a contribution to a more sustainable future for the aviation industry.”
CEO Dick Benschop, of Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, said: “Looking at the future, quality is key for us. The quality of Schiphol’s network must go hand in hand with major steps towards sustainable aviation. Sustainable aviation fuel is a proven technology which needs to be scaled up. Therefore, we warmly welcome Neste to our airport. They are a front-runner and together with them, our airlines, our other aviation partners and our government we want to lead by example.”
Neste and Amsterdam Airport Schiphol are both contributors to the Clean Skies for Tomorrow Initiative - a joint policy proposal to accelerate the deployment of sustainable aviation fuels in Europe, in collaboration with the Energy Transitions Commission and World Economic Forum.
