Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC) has signed the World Economic Forum’s Clean Skies for Tomorrow 2030 Ambition Statement, building on its commitment to sustainability leadership in aviation. As a signatory, BAC has committed to working with more than 100 other airports, airlines, fuel suppliers and industry stakeholders to put the global aviation sector on the path to net zero emissions by accelerating the supply and use of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) to 10 percent by 2030.
Raechel Paris, Executive General Manager Governance, said BAC is proud to support the World Economic Forum in its push toward greater use of SAF. “The aviation industry is of critical importance globally, but more so to Australia as we are a large, widely dispersed island nation. Sustainability is at the forefront of our business, and we are committed to reducing BAC’s impact on the environment by putting in place programs that help us manage and minimise adverse environmental impacts from aviation. We know nothing can be achieved in an airport alone, and the decarbonisation challenge is one that can only be tackled successfully with the collaboration of our airport community. This WEF initiative is a demonstration of our commitment to that outcome, and we strongly believe it is the right thing to do for our community, our customers, and our future,” Paris said.
