Sunweb Group taps Neste for sustainable aviation fuel supply

Saturday, 04 Nov, 2022 0

Sunweb Group announced collaboration with Neste, to become its first travel industry partner for sustainable aviation fuel.

In spring 2022, the travel company announced it would no longer compensate CO2directly, but instead invest in reducing emissions from its own products.

The funds generated have allowed Sunweb Group to partner with Neste by purchasing 385,000 litres of SAF to reduce its CO2 emissions.

The fuel purchased from Neste by Sunweb Group is produced from 100% sustainably sourced renewable waste and residue raw materials such as used cooking oil.

The move is also in addition to an on-going collaboration between Sunweb Group and Dutch airline Transavia in April 2022, when they announced they would invest in a shared sustainability budget in SAF.

“While this initial SAF purchase is currently a small amount, it is an important step towards making flying more sustainable,” says Chris Oskam, Sunweb Group’s Head of Sustainability.

“SAF is the most effective way of lowering our CO2 footprint. With this new investment, we add another 0.5% of SAF to all flights taken by Sunweb Group’s one million customers in 2022.”

“Sunweb Group is taking on the responsibility to make their offering more sustainable by buying SAF and applying it directly for their clientele. This is a first of its kind collaboration, and we hope it will be inspiring for other forward thinking organizations,” says Jason Reichow, Vice President Business Development Renewable Aviation at Neste.
