Hellmann is a global logistics services provider with a strong commitment to sustainability focusing on the three pillars of economy, ecology, and social issues. The AFKLMP Cargo SAF contract was signed at the regional Air France-KLM office in Dubai, UAE, by senior representatives of both companies. Air France-KLM launched its innovative corporate SAF programme in January this year 1 to enable companies to play an active role in the future of sustainable travel.
Air France and KLM have been involved in research and development programmes in the field of alternative fuels for many years. This year, the two airlines were among the first to operate commercial flights, demonstrating a possible alternative to fossil fuels. Sustainable aviation fuels can today be made from waste oils, waste products and forest residues. They can be incorporated into jet fuel without any engine modifications. Their use can reduce CO2 emissions by more than 85 percent compared to conventional fuel.
