IBAC has partnered with the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) in their Assistance, Capacity-building, and Training for Sustainable Aviation Fuels initiative (ICAO ACT-SAF). Kurt Edwards, IBAC Director General signed an ACT-SAF partnering agreement with ICAO’s Secretary General, Juan Carlos Salazar on March 29, at ICAO headquarters. Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF) are a key component to meet the industry’s collective goals towards NetZero carbon emissions by 2050, in line with Business Aviation’s Commitment on Climate Change (BACCC).
Kurt Edwards commented, “The business aviation sector is known for innovation. We look forward to working with ICAO and other ACT-SAF participants to expand the development and use of SAF—a proven, cutting-edge technology—in greater quantities for use by all operators around the world.” The ICAO ACT-SAF programme creates opportunities for States to develop their full potential in SAF development and deployment, in line with the ICAO’s No Country Left Behind initiative, and the 2050 ICAO Vision for SAF.
