Guala Closures Group announced it has joined the Air France-KLM Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) programme.
The Group sees its membership of the SAF programme as a natural extension of the commitment to sustainability in its own production and product design.
The aim of the SAF programme is to reduce carbon emissions in the aviation sector. This is an alternative fuel that reduces CO2 emissions by up to 85%, it is claimed.
As an established corporate customer of Air France and KLM, Guala Closures Group can now make an estimate of the CO2 emissions associated with its travel. This will enable the Group to determine an annual contribution it wishes to devote to the Corporate SAF programme.
Gabriele Del Torchio, chairman and CEO of Guala Closures Group said: “Membership of the Air France KLM SAF programme is perfectly in line with our own corporate objectives. Every part of a company’s impact on the planet must be evaluated. Travel is an important aspect of Guala Closures’ life, as we are a global company with many production and R&D sites around the globe. By acting together with our business partners we can have a real impact in the reduction of carbon emissions in many ways.”
Stefane Vanovermeier, Air France-KLM’ general manager, added: “Air France-KLM is delighted to welcome Guala Closures Group to membership of the SAF programme. It underlines that the production of sustainable aviation fuels is important to everyone, to help achieve carbon reduction targets in the aviation sector. Partnering with companies like Guala.”
