Bombardier and Signature Aviation have reached a multi-year agreement for the purchase of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).
This will be done by utilising the Book and Claim system, covering all of Bombardier’s flight operations starting in January.
The initiative reinforces both companies’ leadership role in the promotion, adoption and widespread use of SAF.
“We will drive our environmental stewardship even further by covering all our production flights with SAF through the new agreement with Signature Aviation,” said Jean-Christophe Gallagher, executive vice-president services and support, and corporate strategy.
“More of our customers are using SAF and so must Bombardier – we must all share in the responsibility for a sustainable future. We believe that taking action today allows us to have maximum impact on the sector as a whole and on the production of SAF.”
“Signature Renew’s Book and Claim programme is business aviation’s most pragmatic approach to making the lowest overall carbon intensity SAF quickly and easily accessible,” explained Tony Lefebvre, CEO for Signature Aviation. “Over the last two years, Signature has grown our SAF supply points to 17 global airports, or around 10% of our total network of private aviation terminals. Until we reach the milestone of SAF at every one of our terminals’ fuel farms, Book and Claim gives critical coverage to gaps in supply while immediately taking greenhouse gasses out of the atmosphere. Bombardier’s implementation of its ambitious sustainability plans demonstrates how any fleet operator, big or small, can tackle the challenge of their aircraft’s emissions through bulk carbon reductions, created right here in business aviation.”
