Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are an inherent challenge for all airlines, but that doesn’t mean we ignore them. So far, we’ve invested in new engine technology and smarter flying techniques to reduce emissions where possible. In 2015, we signed the White House’s American Business Act on Climate Pledge, committing to further reductions.

However, 2016 was the real game changer. We put our money where our mouth is, by signing one of the biggest renewable jet fuel agreements in aviation history. For at least the next 10 years, we’ll buy blended fuel, produced from rapidly replenishable biological resources, from SG Preston. The fuel (30% renewable and 70% traditional) aims for at least a 50% reduction in GHG emissions per gallon, with no impact on performance or safety. Now we’re cooking.
