Sustainable travel

Upgrade to sustainable aviation fuel, such as biofuel, for more sustainable business travel. This will significantly reduce your company’s CO2 emissions from business trips and can contribute to you reaching your sustainability goals.

Make your business travel with SAS more sustainable. As a member of SAS For Business, you can join us towards more sustainable air travel by upgrading to sustainable aviation fuel, such as biofuel. This will significantly reduce your company’s CO2 emissions from business trips and can contribute to you reaching your sustainability goals. In fact, the sustainable aviation fuel used in our aircraft reduce climate-effecting CO2 emissions with up to 80 percent compared to fossil-based aviation fuel.

When upgrading to sustainable aviation fuel for at least 5 % of your total fuel consumption, you will receive useful statistics, along with a declaration of your contribution. With this, you can showcase externally that your company actively contributes to more sustainable business travel – for example in your CSR or annual report. Together we can make air travel more sustainable.

Details & information

What is sustainable aviation fuel (SAF)?

SAF is aviation fuel that is produced in a sustainable way using sustainable raw materials with the aim of dramatically reducing greenhouse gas emissions (primarily CO2) from flight operations. They include but are not limited to biofuels and can also be produced synthetically/chemically. However, currently the only sustainable aviation fuel available, is biofuel.

The definition of “sustainable” will probably change over time. Today, it refers to raw materials, production methods, transport and social impacts related to production. There are several sustainability standards in use today. The one SAS currently uses is the Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials (RSB).
