Fly Green Fund has been delegated the task of delivering renewable aviation fuel to Swedavia’s airports, the equivalent of the company’s employee business travel.

The venture is worth SEK 10 M a year, leading to reductions in fossil carbon dioxide emissions equivalent to 1,400 tonnes every year.

Swedavia is now taking further steps in its vision for fossil-free domestic air travel in Sweden. Fly Green Fund has been delegated the task of delivering renewable aviation fuel to Swedavia’s airports, the equivalent of the company’s employee business travel.

The venture is worth SEK 10 M a year, leading to reductions in fossil carbon dioxide emissions equivalent to 1,400 tonnes every year.

Swedavia is working towards its vision of fossil-free domestic air travel in Sweden by 2030. As part of this work, in December Swedavia decided to launch a tender process for renewable aviation fuel equivalent to the amount used by employee business travel.

Swedavia’s employees make almost 15,000 flights for business purposes each year. This venture, which entails a cost of SEK 10 M annually, means a reduction in carbon dioxide emissions equivalent to 1,400 tonnes a year.

Because of it, and if more market participants follow suit, Swedavia hopes that demand for renewable aviation fuel will increase.

Earlier this year, Swedavia also launched an incentive programme for airlines that invest in renewable aviation fuel, with SEK 5 M set aside for 2016.
