Iberia and Repsol have signed a collaboration agreement to develop sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).
The agreement between the multi-energy company and the airline is part of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) promoted by the United Nations through its 2030 Agenda.
Repsol CEO, Josu Jon Imaz, and chairman of Iberia, Javier Sánchez-Prieto, signed an agreement that will develop ambitious joint programmes and activities to promote SAF among other objectives including the development of renewable hydrogen.
Sánchez-Prieto said: “This agreement with Repsol is a strategic one, so Iberia can progress towards the commitment to sustainability that it has acquired. Our current sustainability strategy is based, above all, on achieving maximum efficiency in our operations, reducing the intensity of our customers' emissions, and offering them an increasingly sustainable travel experience.
“The agreement with Repsol reinforces our future commitment to the research and development of sustainable aviation fuels, the ecological transition of our equipment at airports, and a more efficient management of our facilities.”
Imaz added: "The implementation of this collaboration agreement with a strategic partner for the company such as Iberia is another step in the company's Strategic Plan, which will allow us to move towards the goal of being a net zero emissions company by 2050.”
