Sustainable Aviation Fuel
American Express Global Business Travel’s (Amex GBT) commitment to combat climate change is more important than ever. Air travel accounts for approximately 2.5% of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) emissions – and we need to collectively act now.1 That’s why, together with Shell Aviation, we are working to increase the demand and supply of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF), a lower carbon alternative to conventional jet fuel.
Together, Amex GBT and Shell will provide companies with access to SAF, cutting-edge measurement tools, and knowledgeable consultants to help guide your travel program optimization. You’ll receive SAF environmental attributes to reflect the carbon reduction benefits of your investment, which is managed through Avelia, the first blockchain powered book and claim tool, built by Shell Aviation, Accenture, and Energy Web Foundation.

Benefit from the environmental attributes of SAF to help meet your sustainability goals.
SAF is made from renewable and sustainable resources that can be mixed with fossil-based jet fuel to reduce emissions. As a ‘drop-in’ fuel, it can be used with no modifications needed to the aircraft or other infrastructure. Plus, it’s already in use.
This clean fuel is recognized by experts as the most promising solution to accelerate the aviation sector’s transition to a low-carbon future. It’s also available for use right now, while other forms of alternative propulsion technologies likely won’t be ready at scale for decades.
Amex GBT signed the World Economic Forum Clean Skies for Tomorrow ambition statement to achieve 10% SAF by 2030.3 This requires a collaborative approach from all parts of the aviation ecosystem.
Joining our SAF program will provide your company with an opportunity to meet its sustainability goals, by providing expert guidance, consultation, and the right tools.
When investing in SAF, you’ll not only help meet your company’s environmental goals, but also act as a game-changer in creating a more sustainable world.
