Neste and Finnair are joining forces in the use of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).
Neste has recently made 300 tons of Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel™ available at Helsinki Airport for Finnair’s use.
By replacing a part of the fossil jet fuel with SAF on its flights departing from the airport this will reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 900 tons of CO2 equivalent.
Finnair’s target is to become carbon neutral by 2045, and to halve its net CO2 emissions by the end of 2025.
“We are excited about collaborating with Finnair to pilot the innovative solution we have developed for reducing emissions from business air travel. This solution, built upon Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel and partnerships with airlines, will provide corporate customers and other organisations yet another tool for tackling climate change and meeting their climate commitments,” said Sami Jauhiainen, vice president, business development from Neste’s Renewable Aviation business unit.
“We are extending the invitation to other companies and collaborating airlines to partner with Neste, making business travel more sustainable and future-fit. It is now a great time to prepare for when business travel takes off again.”
”Sustainable aviation fuels are a key element in our ambitious CO2 emissions reduction targets,” added Anne Larilahti, vice president, sustainability at Finnair.
“Solving the climate challenge of aviation requires contribution from all stakeholders. Companies can reduce the environmental footprint of their business travel by choosing direct routes, flying with airlines that have a fuel-efficient fleet, and by choosing to fly with SAF. We are excited to partner with Neste in this.”
As part of the pilot project, Neste has arranged to supply altogether 500 metric tons of SAF in Europe and North America to the airlines most frequently used by Neste employees on their business travels.
The volume already provided for Finnair’s use is included in the total.
