KLM

KLM is a leading player in the field of sustainability within aviation. KLM stimulates the development and market of sustainable biofuels, and buys emissions units when passengers choose to pay a bit extra to compensate their flight’s CO2 emissions. Advancements in aircraft technology, operational improvements, sustainable alternative fuels and market-based measures should reduce CO2 emissions from international aviation. However, these measures are not sufficient to achieve the target of carbon neutrality from 2020 onwards. So how could the existing challenges to carbon neutrality be tackled? What kind of CO2 reduction projects are attractive for passengers of KLM, and promote sustainability in developing countries? How can we deal with the food versus fuel dilemma in biofuel production? And to what extent could KLM contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals?
