MS and KLM look to sustainable air travel blueprint

KLM has partnered with Microsoft to explore cooperation on sustainable air travel. Signing an agreement in Washington, the two companies will commit to purchase sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), which has the potential to reduce up to 80 per cent of CO2 emissions compared to fossil fuel, across the lifecycle, when used on a large scale.

Building on KLM’s Corporate BioFuel Programme, Microsoft will purchase an amount of SAF equivalent to all flights taken by Microsoft employees between the US and Netherlands (and vice versa) on KLM and Delta Airlines.

In addition, Microsoft and KLM intend to explore areas of cooperation that would further improve sustainability and reduce emissions associated with air travel. Our joint aim is to provide a blueprint that will engage other corporations to stimulate the demand for sustainable air travel solutions and achieve ambitions to address their carbon footprint within their own supply chain.
