Hellmann is a global logistics services provider with a strong commitment to sustainability focusing on the three pillars of economy, ecology, and social issues. The AFKLMP Cargo SAF contract was signed at the regional Air France-KLM office in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, by senior representatives of both companies. Air France-KLM launched its innovative corporate SAF programme in January 2021 to enable companies to play an active role in the future of sustainable travel.

 

Air France and KLM have been involved in research and development programmes in the field of alternative fuels for many years. In 2011, the two airlines were among the first to operate commercial flights, demonstrating a possible alternative to fossil fuels. Sustainable aviation fuels can today be made from waste oils, waste products and forest residues. They can be incorporated into jet fuel without any engine modifications. Their use can reduce CO2 emissions by more than 85% compared to conventional fuel.

 

The Cargo SAF Programme makes it possible for shippers and forwarders to power a share of their flights using SAF. Customers may choose their level of engagement and AFKLMP Cargo ensures that the total amount of investment is used for the sourcing of SAF. Cargo SAF Programme partners receive a third-party audited report justifying the purchased amount of SAF linked to the traffic volume, and indicating the achieved reduction in CO2, helping make air transport more sustainable. By participating in the Cargo SAF Programme, customers not only reduce their carbon footprint but also demonstrate leadership and a commitment to a more sustainable future.
