This initiative is part of the AIRsaf offer launched by Bolloré Logistics in July 2021. Based on the use of sustainable aviation fuel, this offer also includes an end-to-end solution, with environmentally responsible pre- and post-carriage procedures, as well as management of reusable transport packaging. It is also in line with its “Powering Sustainable Logistics” CSR programme, in which Bolloré Logistics committed to cut its scope 3 CO2 emissions generated by the execution of transport by 30% by 2030 compared to 2019.
Air France-KLM sustainability commitment
In October 2021, the Air France-KLM Group committed to having its CO2 emissions reduction targets validated by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), ensuring that its targets are in line with the Paris Agreement. Air France-KLM is one of the first European airline groups to have its decarbonisation trajectory validated by SBTi. This new important step in the Group's decarbonisation strategy comes in addition to its objective of net zero emissions by 2050.
Air France-KLM’s decarbonisation trajectory includes an ambitious plan to renew the Group’s airline fleet with next generation aircraft emitting 20-25 percent less CO2. Between 2019 and 2021, the Group invested 2.5 billion euros in fleet renewal.
The search for greater efficiency in its operations, by favouring more direct trajectories and applying procedures that limit fuel consumption (lighter aircraft, single-engine taxi, continuous descent) are part of AFKLMP sustainability efforts. Air France and KLM have set themselves the target of carbon neutrality for ground operations by 2030.
In addition, Air France-KLM is mobilizing the entire sector and is committed to developing innovative solutions for aircraft design and maintenance, engines, and synthetic fuels, which will gradually lead to carbon-free aviation.
