Travelers around the world are increasingly becoming aware of the environmental impact of travel and are looking for ways to reduce their footprint, specifically their CO2 emissions from flying.
Options are still limited for Travelers
Some airlines and travel companies already offer options to travelers to compensate for their carbon emissions through so-called “carbon offsets”. Examples hereof are projects that plant trees or supply cooking stoves to developing countries. Although we believe carbon offsets should be part of the “mix” of measures (if managed the right way), the availability of high-quality carbon offsets has a limit and does not offer a lasting solution to the aviation industry’s growing impact. At this moment, Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) is the most promising short to medium term solution to drastically reduce CO2 emissions from flying.
SAF can reduce CO2 emissions by 85% compared to conventional fossil kerosene, because it is made from sustainable waste streams such as used cooking oil, instead of conventional fossil resources.

Enabling SAF for Travelers
There are currently very limited opportunities for individual travelers to fly on SAF and that is why SkyNRG is teaming up with travel companies to offer this service to travelers. By adding SAF when booking a trip, travelers not only reduce their impact from air travel but also support the innovation of cleaner solutions and the transition to a more sustainable future.
SkyNRG is starting up the first project with its partners Travelbase and Better Places that both support the development of a sustainable future for travel. In the coming months, more travel organizations will follow these pioneers and enable their travelers to make a sustainable impact too.
