Avfuel adds NATA sustainability designation
Avfuel says sustainability is more than a selling point, it is a commitment to better the health of its communities. It has met the requirements for NATA's Sustainability Standard for Aviation Businesses.
Avfuel's Ann Arbor HQ is a NATA Green Aviation Business Tier 1.

Avfuel has applied for, and was recently found to meet, the requirements for NATA's Sustainability Standard for Aviation Businesses. As such it is designated a Green Aviation Business Tier 1 at its Ann Arbor, Michigan headquarters. To date, Avfuel's headquarters is just one of 24 locations held by 13 companies to receive a designation under the standard.

“Sustainability is more than an ideal at Avfuel, it's a mindset,” says vice president of marketing Marci Ammerman. “With every decision that's made, we think about how a solution or process can be made more sustainable and how our operations can become more sustainable. It's in the solutions we provide to our customers, the sustainable measures we take at our headquarters and the education we provide to our employees.”

As part of the tier 1 certification process, the Avfuel team established its baseline carbon footprint, submitted its environmental policy, phased out single-use products in its kitchen/dining area and confirmed its utilisation of a local recycling programme; paperless processes; LED lighting; a filtered water fill station; motion-sensor lighting; energy-star rated kitchen appliances; and low-flow plumbing fixtures.

“We're proud to join the ranks of some of our branded FBOs, namely Duncan Aviation, Million Air and Ross Aviation, who also committed to the NATA Sustainability Standard for Aviation Businesses,” adds Ammerman. “We always strive to be on the leading edge of sustainability initiatives to support, inspire and guide sustainably-minded operations across the Avfuel network. We'd encourage any aviation business to look at NATA's standard and discover how even small changes can make a big difference.”

The certification is illustrative of Avfuel's overall commitment to sustainability. The fuel supplier is committed to identifying, developing, providing and advocating for sustainable solutions, making it Avfuel's duty to promote environmentally responsible operations at its properties and throughout the Avfuel network, in addition to facilitating initiatives to help customers reach their sustainability goals.

Avfuel also plans to offset all annual carbon emissions generated from scope 1 and 2 activities, fuel used in corporate aircraft and diesel used in leased refueller truck equipment across its network. For its customers, Avfuel offers an array of sustainable solutions, including sustainable aviation fuel, book and claim, and carbon offsetting.
