News Air Canada emissions GHG MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel Neste SAF

Neste and Air Canada are expanding their collaboration with an additional supply of 9.5 million litres of Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel. The sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) supplied to Air Canada will be blended with conventional jet fuel and used to power the airline’s flights from the San Francisco International Airport.

Air Canada has committed to the ambitious goal of net-zero emissions from all its global operations by 2050. It has set mid-term targets for reducing net greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2030 from both its air and ground operations compared to its 2019 baseline.

SAF is a renewable aviation fuel providing a more sustainable alternative to conventional, fossil based jet fuel. It is widely recognized as a key lever to achieve aviation’s emission reduction goals. Using Neste MY Sustainable Aviation Fuel reduces greenhouse gas emissions by up to 80% over the fuel’s life cycle, compared to using conventional jet fuel. Neste’s SAF is made from sustainably sourced, 100% renewable waste and residue raw materials, such as used cooking oil and animal fat waste.
