The Canadian Business Aviation Association is the latest organization to join the SAF Coalition, which aims to further the production and acceptance of sustainable aviation fuel throughout the industry.

The Canadian Business Aviation Association is the newest member of the Business Aviation Sustainable Fuel Coalition (SAF Coalition), joining NBAA, EBAA, IBAC, GAMA, NATA, and the Commercial Aviation Alternative Fuels Initiative (CAAFI).

Founded in 2017, the group has sponsored several high-profile events, including its first virtual industry summit back in September, and has recently released the second edition of its SAF educational guidebook, Fueling the Future, which provides a roadmap for accelerating the production, availability, and acceptance of sustainable fuel. The organization has also teamed with other aviation organizations such as ICAO and the Air Transport Action Group to further these goals.

“As the coalition has made clear, SAF is key to the industry’s goal of continued emissions reduction,” said CBAA president and CEO Anthony Norejko. “SAF may sound too good to be true, but it is true: it will dramatically reduce carbon emissions and help the industry go further faster in reducing an already low carbon footprint. We're pleased to be part of a group that is ensuring this vision becomes reality.”
