Farnborough supports decarbonisation through SAF supply
The SAF available at Farnborough airport comes from 100 per cent renewable and sustainable waste and residual raw materials such as cooking oil and animal fat waste. Any aircraft at Farnborough can receive it.
In 2018, Farnborough airport was the first business aviation airport to be awarded carbon neutral status by Airports Council International Europe.

Farnborough airport is now offering sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) to all aircraft positioned at the airport. Making SAF available allows the reduction of flying emissions by up to 80 per cent and marks the next step in the airport's work to support the decarbonisation of the wider aviation industry.

CEO Simon Geere says: “The introduction of SAF at Farnborough is a major milestone in our sustainability programme, and we are pleased to be able to offer Neste MY sustainable aviation fuel by working with our fuel provider World Fuel Services. We are fully committed to a sustainable future and are delighted to offer our customers the opportunity to make a greener choice and work with us to play an integral part in delivering against the UK Government's targets for net zero carbon emissions.”

In 2018, Farnborough airport was the first business aviation airport to be awarded carbon neutral status by Airports Council International Europe, and over the past 10 years the airport has reduced its controllable emissions by over 70 per cent. The team recognises that climate change is a clear and pressing issue and is committed to minimising its environmental impact and improving environmental performance throughout its operations.

The Neste MY SAF available at Farnborough airport is produced 100 per cent from renewable and sustainable waste and residual raw materials such as used cooking oil and animal fat waste. In its neat form and over the life cycle, SAF reduces up to 80 per cent of greenhouse gas emissions compared to fossil fuel use, enabling the industry to significantly reduce its carbon footprint.

Neste VP of sales Jonathan Wood says: “We are really pleased to supply SAF to Farnborough, who, together with the business aviation sector and the UK aviation industry, is looking to lead the way in reducing aviation net emissions.”

World Fuel Services VP of supply for Europe Duncan Storey adds: “World Fuel Services was the first company to have blended SAF in the UK and worked with Farnborough airport to make SAF available during Europe's inaugural SAF demonstration at EBACE 2019. We applaud Farnborough's leadership in sustainability and look forward to continuing our relationship by delivering a regular SAF supply to the airport. World Fuel remains committed to supporting Farnborough's sustainability initiatives by providing carbon-reducing options for business aircraft and continuing to aid in the procurement of sustainable fuels.”
