Menzies is the first aviation fuel services provider to sign up to the coalition, which is led by the World Economic Forum in collaboration with the Rocky Mountain Institute and the Energy Transitions Commission.
 
A key goal of CST is to accelerate sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) to reach 10% of the global fuel supply by 2030. SAF is currently the only alternative fuel option available for commercial aircraft and accounts for less than 1% of all total jet fuel demand. It is a cleaner fuel powered by sources ranging from agricultural waste to carbon captured from the air.
 
Menzies’ fuel teams have already performed SAF refuels of commercial flights in both the UK and US and are implementing management of change procedures for the receipt and handling of SAF at some fuel farm locations.
 
Beyond supporting the transition to SAF, Menzies has implemented it’s All In Sustainability strategy, which includes a commitment of becoming carbon neutral for Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2033, which coincides with Menzies’ 200th anniversary. Specific to its fuels division, Menzies is trialling alternative fuels for fuelling equipment, expanding the deployment of electric refuelling vehicles, optimising fuel farms to reduce water and electricity consumption, and exploring enhanced digital solutions.
 
Morven McCrindle, Executive Vice President – Fuels, Menzies Aviation, said: “We are delighted to be the first aviation fuel services business to join the Clean Skies for Tomorrow coalition, as we forge ahead with our efforts to support sustainable aviation. We recognise the need to reduce our emissions and will continue to explore and implement changes that will not only help us reach our goals, but also support our customers on their journeys to net zero."
