Clean Air Transport

What Clean Air Transport is

A partnership supporting the decarbonization of air transportation
SFC’s Clean Air Transport program aims to unite first movers on sustainable aviation in the freight sector, leveraging increased transparency of the GHG emissions from air freight services to drive decarbonization measures across the air transport sector. Air freight decarbonization will depend on increased utilization rates within the system as a whole, ongoing fleet renewal towards newer, more efficient aircraft, and a significant ramp up of SAF availability and use in the market, supported by a common and well-accepted book and claim framework (until SAF use is the norm).

What Clean Air Transport does

SFC’s Clean Air Transport program will address all of these issues, working with strategic partners and scheme members to leverage increased access to, and use of, primary data. This will support decision-making to reduce GHG emissions and roll out practical book and claim guidelines to accelerate the use of SAF. We will also work with program members and other partners such as SBTi to further develop the GLEC methodology. Our aim is to support alignment in target setting within the air transport sector and exchange on measures and best practices taken to achieve such targets.

Our 2023 work program will focus on

  • Book & Claim Guidelines
  • Platform for primary data sharing
  • Accounting methodology developments
  • Exchange on target setting and measures
