SABA’s mission is to accelerate the path to net-zero aviation by driving investment in high-integrity sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), catalyzing new SAF production, technological innovation, and supporting member engagement in policy-making efforts.
SABA’s founding companies include Bank of America, Boeing, Boston Consulting Group, Deloitte, JPMorgan Chase, McKinsey & Company, Meta, Microsoft, Netflix and Salesforce. Founding companies work in collaboration with EDF and RMI to develop a rigorous, transparent system that expands opportunities to invest in high-integrity SAF to all businesses and organizations interested in reducing the climate impacts of flying.
