Kuehne+Nagel, Atlas Air and SR Technics Group have formed the Sustainable Engine Alliance which aims to reduce the environmental impact of aircraft engine supply chains.

The alliance said that it would deploy sustainable fuels, engine stand management solutions and a global digital interface for emission transparency, reduction and avoidance. 

The initiative is expected to reduce engine supply chain-related scope 3 emissions – those emissions generated by suppliers – and will be in line with the Science Based Targets Initiative (SBTi).

Erik Goedhart, senior vice president global head of aerospace at Kuehne+Nagel, said: “Collaboration is key to industry-wide improvements in aerospace sustainability.

“With the Sustainable Engine Alliance, we will set new standards for responsible sourcing and engine transportation, while creating further awareness within the industry to minimise the environmental impact of engine supply chains jointly.”

James Forbes, executive vice president and chief operating officer of Atlas Air Worldwide, added: “Through our partnership, we will be developing maintenance and supply chain best practices that will guide us well into the future and help us achieve our environmental stewardship goals.”

Kuehne+Nagel recently launched a dedicated airfreight operation in partnership with Atlas Air, with the forwarder chartering two of the airline’s B747Fs.

The forwarder has added flights to Birmingham-Shuttlesworth and Alabama as part of its charter network.
