Cargolux SAF programme


Cargolux has announced the launch of its sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) programme. The introduction of SAF in the airline’s services “takes Cargolux’s sustainability engagement one step further, cementing the company’s commitment to decarbonising its operations,” says the carrier.

This new milestone is an additional step in the company’s endeavour to reduce CO2 emissions and lays the foundation for a customer sustainability programme, that will offer more sustainable options for their transportation requirements.

“Our commitment to Corporate Social Responsibility is intrinsic to our business model and the introduction of SAF in our operation is a significant step forward for Cargolux. We are pleased to be part of an industry-wide initiative to make our business, our industry and our world more sustainable”, says Richard Forson, president & CEO.

The airline aims to being carbon neutral by 2050 and has preemptively acted to be fully compliant with upcoming proposed European regulations and offsetting schemes. In the context of the COP26 conference and its commitment to limit the global temperature rise to 1.5°C, Cargolux says it “is proud to play its part in the collective effort to achieve this goal.”
