Minimizing our environmental footprint

Our ambition: We aim for a sustainable balance between aviation growth and minimizing our environmental footprint by mobilizing our industry, innovating our supply chain and reducing our own impact.


Air France-KLM’s major environmental impact is caused by the emissions of its flight operations. This is why Air France- KLM has adopted a strategy to mitigate climate change, known as the “Climate Action Plan” and also minimizes its environmental impact in the field of noise, waste, energy and water. The Group goes beyond regulatory requirements by :

- Mitigating noise and emissions from our operations by renewing fleet and implementing the most efficient procedures.

- Continuing to modernize its fleet, optimizing its performance and collaborating with partners in the entire supply chain. Investing in sustainable aviation fuel  and contributing to aviation and renewable energy research. Involving internal and external stakeholders in environmental action plans in line with eco-design principles  and supports environmental protection programmes led by NGOs.

- Providing its passengers with transparent information on their related CO2 emissions and the possibility to offset travel related CO2 emissions and corporate customers with the opportunity to fly part of their business travel on sustainable biofuel.

- Supporting efforts to reach a new worldwide climate agreement and mobilises the aviation sector for a fair contribution to collective targets.
