Gulfstream President Mark Burns announced the deal during the Virtual 2020 Business Aviation Sustainability Summit to discuss pathways to accelerate the market for SAF. Per gallon, SAF has at least a 60 percent smaller carbon footprint than conventional jet fuel on a lifecycle basis.

 

This contract extends Gulfstream’s original multiyear purchase agreement, which was the first of its kind in business aviation when it was signed in 2015. Since March 2016, Gulfstream has used SAF for its Savannah-based fleet, which comprises corporate, demonstration, completion, Customer Support and flight test aircraft. The company has made more than 650 flights with an SAF-JET A fuel blend, flying more than 1.3 million nautical miles and reducing carbon dioxide emissions by approximately 1,700 metric tons.

 

“This renewal marks another step in our ongoing commitment to promoting positive change in our industry,” said Mark Burns, president, Gulfstream. “Reducing our impact on the environment by using SAF is a move we all should consider making. Creating a sustainable future for aviation is a responsibility we share, and we appreciate the leadership, innovation and collaboration of World Energy in helping Gulfstream — and the industry at large — fulfill that responsibility.”
