IAG Commits to 10 pct SAF by 2030 (Int'l Report)
International Airlines Group
In London, International Airlines Group (IAG) reports it is the first European airline group to commit to powering 10 pct of its flights with sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) by 2030.
The Group will purchase one million tpy of SAF enabling it to cut its annual emissions by 2 million tonnes in 10 years -- equivalent to removing 1 million cars from Europe's roads each year.
IAG is committed to net zero emissions by 2050.
According to the IAG release, "with the right policy in place in the next ten years up to 14 plants could be built across the UK, creating 6,500 jobs and saving 3.6 million tpy of CO2." (Source: International Airlines Group, Website, PR, Apr., 2021)
