Virtual 2020 Business Aviation Sustainability Summit

14 - 15/09/2020 Online

About the Virtual Business aviation sustainability summit

Business aviation leaders will convene 14 – 15 September for a first-of-its-kind Virtual 2020 Business Aviation Sustainability Summit to discuss pathways to accelerate the market for sustainable aviation fuels (SAF), the cleaner-burning alternative fuel that, on a gallon-per-gallon basis, often reduce net lifecycle CO2 emissions in excess of 50%, versus conventional jet fuel.

Experts along every point on the value chain – manufacturers, producers, providers/FBOs, operators, government leaders and others – will discuss and determine how to increase the production, availability and use of SAF. Members of the news media are invited to attend.

The forum is being hosted by the Business Aviation Coalition for Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF Coalition), which just released Fueling the Future, an educational and informational resource about SAF development, industry adoption and expansion of supply and use. The guide builds upon initiatives to educate industry leaders, policymakers and others on the benefits and viability of SAF in conjunction with the World Economic Forum and previous events held at airports in Van Nuys, CA, Farnborough, UK, Geneva and Las Vegas.
