As air transport emissions are expected to double from pre-COVID levels by 2050, the aviation industry needs a near-term climate solution to rapidly decarbonize. In an effort to put the industry on a more sustainable flight path, SABA is accelerating investment in and adoption of sustainable aviation fuels (SAF).

SAF provides a climate benefit when it reduces lifecycle GHG emissions, as compared to fossil jet fuel. However, not all SAF is created equal. Some can lead to greater emissions than the fossil jet fuel it is meant to replace or cause negative effects on ecosystems and communities. This makes a robust sustainability framework critical to ensure the uptake of high-integrity SAF.
Airlines, companies, and eventually individual travelers will be able to track emissions reductions from feedstock sourcing until they are claimed towards climate commitments.
