Canadian aviation industry leaders have launched the Canadian Council for Sustainable Aviation Fuels (C-SAF) to accelerate the deployment of sustainable aviation fuels (SAF) in the country.
This is to ensure that the Canadian aviation sector remains competitive as it transitions to a net-zero future.
SAF can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 80% and can be used now without significant modifications to aircraft or supply infrastructure.
Consisting of 60 airlines operating in Canada and comprised of key stakeholders in the Canadian aviation ecosystem including suppliers, aerospace manufacturers, airports, finance, and academia, the council aims to facilitate the production and supply of made-in-Canada SAF.
"Decarbonising Canadian aviation requires collaboration between industry, governments, scientists and airlines. The C-SAF provides a space for a common dialogue to facilitate the exchange of ideas to reduce GHG emissions from aviation and we strongly believe that with everyone working together, change can happen faster," said Geoff Tauvette, executive director of the C-SAF.
"The aviation industry is in constant evolution to ensure a greener future for our planet. With the launch of the Canadian Council for Sustainable Aviation Fuels, Canada's aviation sector will remain competitive and will create jobs for Canadians while reducing pollution. This initiative will help in Canada's goal in achieving net-zero emissions by 2050 and is a step in the right direction for the aviation industry," added the Minister of Transport Omar Alghabra.
