Air France-KLM and HORIBA signed an agreement to mark a further step to develop the sustainable fuel industry.

HORIBA, Ltd. has signed an agreement to join the group’s Corporate SAF Program (Sustainable Aviation Fuel). The Corporate SAF program by Air France- KLM to calls on the business community to play an active role in the future of sustainable travel. This cooperative is an extension of Nabtesco Coporation’s commitment to its CSR goals by choosing to invest in a developing industry ultimately responsible for providing a sustainable option for air transport.

Sustainable fuels for aviation, fundamental levers for reducing CO₂ emissions Air France and KLM have been involved for many years in research and development programs in the field of alternative fuels. In 2011, the two airlines were among the first to operate commercial flights with sustainable fuels, demonstrating that it is possible to use an alternative energy to fossil fuels. The main challenge today is the development of a sustainable industry to which the corporate customers of Air France and KLM can make a concrete contribution.

Guillaume Glass, General Manager for Japan, Korea and New Caledonia said: “Air France – KLM is leading the path toward decarbonization of air transport. After CO2 reduction via fleet modernization and eco-piloting, and CO2 offset schemes offered to all our customers, we are moving to the next step with our Corporate SAF Program. This new program allows Japanese companies to reduce CO2 emissions by 80% for a part, or all, of their employee’s business trips.
I would like to thank HORIBA for their commitment toward sustainable business travel."
