 - September 11, 2020, 12:23 PM

The Virtual 2020 Business Aviation Global Sustainability Summit, scheduled for September 14 and 15, will feature participation from key Washington, D.C. figures, including House aviation subcommittee chairman Rick Larsen (D-Washington) and ranking Republican Garret Graves (Louisiana), the Business Aviation Coalition for Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF Coalition) announced today. Also scheduled to address next week’s summit is acting U.S. undersecretary for transportation policy Joel Szabat.

Announced in August, the SAF Coalition-sponsored summit replaces a live event originally slated in March in Washington, D.C., but that was canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic. 

The summit will address ways to accelerate the market for renewable jet fuels, including sessions reviewing the current SAF situation, short-term supply strategies from fuel providers, long-term regulatory perspectives, and operators' overview. Other participants include additional government officials, manufacturers, producers, providers/FBOs, and operators.

Next week's virtual summit will be held from 10:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. ET on Monday and 10:30 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. on Tuesday.
