The partnership is a pioneering attempt in evolving ways to reduce carbon footprint in the aviation sector
In an effort to make flying more sustainable, Neste and Geneva Airport are partnering together, by starting to decarbonize aviation towards fossil neutral growth.
Renewable jet fuel for aircraft operations from Geneva International Airport is planned to be introduced. Commencing late 2018, at least 1% (one percent) of the annual jet fuel consumption at Genève Airport is targeted to be composed of renewable jet fuel, presenting an excellent example of a state, an airport and a renewable solutions provider collaborating to decrease CO2 emissions in aviation.
Executive Vice President in the Renewable Product business area in Neste, Kaisa Hietala, says, "Geneva Airport is exemplary in sustainability with its ambitious goals to reduce its greenhouse emissions. We are very excited to collaborate with Geneva Airport and their airline partners to show the way to the aviation sector. We both share the common view that decreasing CO2 emissions in aviation is crucial in combating climate change. This is an important step for Neste in implementing our growth strategy for renewables in applications outside road traffic fuels. Neste MY Renewable Jet Fuel is Neste's sustainable solution for reducing CO2 emissions in aviation."
"As aviation is growing, airports have a crucial role in taking initiatives which aim at reducing environmental impact,” said André Schneider, CEO of Geneva Airport. “Geneva Airport is particularly pleased to work in this very ambitious project together with Neste, the Swiss authorities, airlines operating from Geneva, and locally established fuel companies."
