Shell and Ryanair together for a sustainable future
Added on Thu January 19th, 2023
The major British energy company Shell has promised to provide as much as 360 million tonnes of green aviation fuel at over 200 European airports where Ryanair operates. In particular, Dublin and London Stansted airports will be targeted. This decision comes close to the 2050 target of zero emissions. This action would in fact involve a saving of almost one million tonnes of CO2 equivalent to 70,000 Dublin-Milan routes.
The issue of sustainability in aviation is growing even though the numbers are currently very small, as Ryanair states in a statement. However, this memorandum of understanding offers significant savings in terms of emissions to the extent that Ryanair will meet its ambitious targets as early as 2030 with a 12.5 per cent utilisation of Saf.
As Thomas Fowler, Ryanair’s director of sustainability says, the agreement will allow 20% access to this goal. Jan Toschka, president of Shell Aviation, also feels satisfied, as he is increasingly convinced that Saf is the key to achieving zero emissions targets for aviation on time.
