Koppert Biological Systems and Air France KLM Martinair Cargo (AFKLMP Cargo) entered into a partnership today within the framework of the airline’s sustainable aviation fuel programme. Under the partnership, AFKLMP Cargo will use sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) on selected international cargo flights carrying Koppert’s agricultural and horticultural products for biological pest control.
SAF is a jet fuel made from renewable sources such as cooking oil and a sustainable alternative to fossil fuel that reduces carbon emissions by a minimum of 75%. It is blended with conventional fossil fuel and can be used by all aircraft engines.
Koppert is a pioneering Dutch company that prioritises sustainability and is committed to improving the health of people and the planet. Its mission and vision fit in seamlessly with Air France KLM Martinair Cargo’s leading role in making the air cargo industry more sustainable. Koppert and AFKLMP Cargo have been working together for almost 20 years. Koppert will be the first AFKLMP Cargo freight shipper to join the SAF programme.
