Cargolux and long-term partner Bolloré Logistics have signed an agreement for the use of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) in joint operations.
The deal, encompassing 800,000 litres of SAF, forms part of the Cargolux SAF programme.
This initiative will enable Bolloré Logistics, which launched its AIRsaf SAF programme last year, to reduce its Scope 3 Greenhous Gas Emissions by at least 2,200 tonnes of CO2e.
“Cargolux is strongly committed to the development and use of Sustainable Aviation Fuel and has foreseen investment in SAF-related projects over the coming years,” said Domenico Ceci, executive vice president for sales and marketing at Cargolux. “The agreement we signed with our long-term partner Bolloré Logistics is a significant achievement, one we hope to build on in the future. Taking this step with a trusted customer is important for Cargolux and it highlights both our companies’ engagement for environmentally-sound operations.”
Pierre Houé, deputy chief operations officer of Bolloré Logistics, said: “Sustainable Aviation Fuel is a key solution for Bolloré Logistics to decarbonise transportation and reach our carbon reduction targets set up in our CSR programme “Powering Sustainable Logistics”. Building a strong partnership with a crucial partner like Cargolux is critical to enable the aviation industry to operate a transition towards a more sustainable future. We are very glad to engage in this journey together.”
In line with its “Powering Sustainable Logistics” CSR programme, Bolloré Logistics committed to cut 30% by 2030, compared to 2019, of its Scope 3 CO2 emissions generated by the execution of transport.
