Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) is non-fossil derived aviation fuel that can be made from sustainable biogenic sources such as used cooking oils, council waste, plant oils, agricultural residues and non-biological sources. Biogenic SAF has the potential to reduce lifecycle emissions by up to 80% compared to conventional jet fuel. Non-biogenic SAF — or synthetic fuel / efuels — is a pathway which utilises carbon dioxide, green hydrogen and significant amounts of renewable electricity to synthesise a liquid fuel with favourable sustainability characteristics (emissions are reduced by up to 90% compared to fossil fuels).
With our goal to reach net zero by 2050, we’re entering into partnerships to accelerate the use of SAF across our fleet, and the development of a SAF industry in Australia. Along with our current carbon offset initiatives, reduced waste and operational efficiencies, we’re targeting 10% of our fuel to come from SAF by 2030 and 60% by 2050.
