SIA and Scoot target 5% SAF usage
This decision is critical to the group’s goal of achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
Goh Choon Phong, chief executive officer, Singapore Airlines, said: “This is an important milestone in the SIA Group’s sustainability journey.
“The greater use of sustainable fuels will be a key lever in our decarbonisation strategy, which includes our continued investment in new generation aircraft and greater operational efficiencies. Together, this will put us on the path towards our net zero target.
“However, we cannot do this alone. Deeper collaboration with partners and stakeholders, both in Singapore and around the world, is needed for all of us to meet our collective sustainability targets. We will continue to find opportunities to work together to support the greater production and use of sustainable fuels in the airline industry, as well as other decarbonisation initiatives.”
Discussions with fuel suppliers on opportunities to purchase sustainable aviation fuels are ongoing.
Over the last few years, the Group has been working closely with partners, both in Singapore and around the world, to better understand the operational and commercial considerations that would support the greater supply and adoption of SAF. As a member of Singapore’s International Advisory Panel (IAP) to develop the sustainable air hub blueprint, SIA has been playing an active part in the development of a decarbonisation roadmap for the country’s aviation sector.
