Industry-led Partnership Launches Canadian SAF Initiative

December 6, 2019 - The Green Aviation Research and Development Network (GARDN), SkyNRG, Waterfall Group and Vancouver Airport Authority have announced the launch of the industry-led initiative BioPortYVR to increase the supply of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) in Canada. SAF is not currently widely available in Canada. Meanwhile, demand is growing in the country as the airline industry looks to reduce its carbon footprint. BioPortYVR will consider and evaluate the viability of implementing regional supply chains to distribute SAF to airlines at Vancouver International Airport (YVR) and surrounding airports through demand centers, known as BioPorts. In the coming months, the project partners will engage with stakeholders to develop a series of actionable recommendations for the introduction of SAF at YVR.

EasyJet Goes Carbon Neutral

November 19, 2019 – EasyJet announced it is going carbon neutral immediately. Europe’s fifth largest airline said it will become the first major airline in the world to operate net zero carbon flights. The offset projects EasyJet will invest more than $30 million over the next year have been certified to deliver carbon reductions that would not otherwise have happened and do not inadvertently lead to an increase in emissions elsewhere. EasyJet says they have already reduced the amount of carbon it emits every kilometer each passenger flies by more than one-third since 2000 by utilizing more fuel efficient aircraft and operating practices. The airline view offsets as a temporary measure to reduce their carbon footprint in the short-term while they work to support longer-term efforts, including the development of new technology.
