About Board Now
The Board Now program was launched in 2019 and was the world’s first program enabling companies to contribute directly to the development of the sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) industry. Organizations who signed up to Board Now committed themselves for a period of 5 or more years to the purchase of SAF from SkyNRG’s first SAF facility, SkyNRG Delfzijl.
The Board Now program was closed as of 2022 after reaching the maximum member capacity, but we still offer different alternatives for corporates looking to reduce their emissions and invest in SAF.
How members benefit
To increase SAF production capacity, SkyNRG is building several facilities dedicated to producing SAF, including SkyNRG Delfzijl, SkyNRG Amsterdam and SkyNRG Pacific Northwest. By participating in the Board Now program, corporate members have committed to flying on SAF that will be produced by one of those new production facilities, like SkyNRG Delfzijl.
By using SAF from the production facilities, our Board Now members will reduce their travel or cargo emissions and simultaneously support the business case for new SAF capacity development today, enabling the growth of a new industry and sustainable alternative to fossil fuels.
What our members say
”Especially when it comes to our unlisted investments, there are times we need to know the local situation well. In these cases, online or video links can miss essential information, making it vital that we be there physically. In the cases that travel is necessary, an investment that contributes to emission reduction on a larger scale – forestry, for example – the decision to take the plane must be a conscious one, accounting for sustainability. Becoming a partner in SkyNRG’s Board Now program takes this one step further, allowing us to address our emissions in-sector.”Ronald Wuijster Executive Board Member at APG
“Lower-carbon air travel is a vital part of achieving our net-zero goal, as well as the global climate targets. This partnership with SkyNRG will help to develop the global market for more affordable sustainable aviation fuel.”Rich Lesser CEO, Boston Consulting Group (BCG)
‘’The science is clear; we need to see rapid CO2 emission reduction within this decade. Novo Nordisk has committed to achieve zero CO2 emissions from our operations and transportation by 2030. By investing in sustainable aviation fuel from SkyNRG, we will reduce our carbon emissions from our air freight significantly and this will bring us one step closer to our 2030 target.”Dorethe Nielsen Vice President, Novo Nordisk
“At Skyscanner it is our mission to lead the global transformation to modern and sustainable travel and so we are delighted to partner with SkyNRG’s ‘Board Now’ program. We believe that supporting development into new technologies, such as sustainable aviation fuel, will enable travellers to continue to explore our planet while protecting it for future generations.”Martin Nolan Senior Director, Public & Regulatory Affairs, Skyscanner
“PwC is doing everything in its power to reduce its own business air travel emissions substantially. The purchasing of sustainable aviation fuel contributes to this. The use of SAF can deliver a CO2 reduction up to 85 per cent compared to conventional jet fuel. With our commitment to SkyNRG’s Board Now program, we strengthen our strategy for sustainable business travel and we believe that this is a very important step towards sustainable flying.”Renate de Lange Board of Directors, PwC Netherlands
