Global transport and logistics company DSV is the first company in Denmark to sign an agreement within the Scandinavian Airlines SAS Corporate Sustainability Program.
This partnership effectively means DSV will buy sustainable aviation fuel for all its corporate travel with SAS for 2023.
The main lever for decarbonizing the aviation sector is to replace fossil fuels (kerosene) with sustainable aviation fuels (SAF). SAS now accelerates partnerships with corporate customers to expand the use of SAF.
The signing of the new agreement marks the start of SAS Corporate Sustainability Program, an initiative designed to meet the demand to easily buy sustainable aviation fuel and thereby reducing climate-affecting emissions for air travel and cargo.
”DSV is proud to replace all fossil jet fuel with SAF for all of our 2023 business flights. As one of the world’s largest freight forwarders, we recognise our responsibility to work towards reducing our indirect emissions.”
“Since COVID, we have been able to reduce our amount of business air travel, but being a global company with customers and business partners across the world, we cannot eliminate it completely.”
“With this initiative, we seek to lower the impact of our business air travel,” says Jens Bjørn Andersen, Group CEO, DSV.
SAS is a driving force in sustainable aviation and the transition toward net zero aviation, openly engaging with stakeholders in the industry to get there. The partnership between DSV and SAS leads the way with the aim to inspire other companies to join.
“SAS aims to decarbonize aviation and progress on this ambitious plan can only be achieved through collaboration. By involving our customers and teaming up with them we will reduceCO2 emissions and enable more large-scale production of sustainable aviation fuels.”
“We hope the partnership between DSV and SAS will inspire other companies to join our Corporate Sustainability Program and be part of the journey to transform aviation for generations to come,” says Anko van der Werff, SAS President & CEO.”
Flying fossil free with SAS
The airline’s SAS Corporate Sustainability Program is designed to bridge the gap to sustainable aviation in order to secure the future of aviation together with partners.
SAS invites all its corporate customers to join by offering a subscription at a fixed cost or reduction in carbon emissions.
SAS makes no profit on the purchase, the amount paid by the customer corresponds to the SAF price premium. The program is audited by an external party to ensure full transparency.
Compared to fossil fuels, sustainable aviation fuels, dramatically reduce the climate-impacting CO2 emissions in its lifecycle.
