Minimizing our environmental footprint
Our ambition: We aim for a sustainable balance between aviation growth and our total environmental footprint, by playing our part in the worldwide effort, mobilizing our industry and reducing our own impact.
Aviation accounts for around 2% of global man-made CO2 emissions, but continuous growth in air transport means this figure is rising. Air France-KLM is mobilizing the industry in the fight against climate change in line with ICAO commitments and is playing its part in the collective effort to reduce CO2 emissions produced by air transport.
Forward looking, the Group is involved in developing sustainable alternative fuels, continues to modernize its fleet and to implement practical measures for reducing fuel consumption while supporting aviation research.
Air France-KLM is further committed to implementing innovative environmental measures to reduce noise, improve air quality, manage energy and water consumption and reduce waste. In pursuit of these goals, the Group encourages the commitment and initiatives of its employees and cooperates together with its suppliers.
