Committed to Sustainability
As airlines and airports, organizations and individual travelers seek to reduce aviation’s environment impact, Leading Edge Jet Center is contributing to the solution by including sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) at its locations. LEJC is proud to be one of the first facilities in North America to offer SAF at its location. The production and distribution of jet biodiesel is growing, presenting paths forward to reduce our collective carbon footprint. Offering SAF is our commitment to helping customers reduce GHG emissions, helping to increase the supply of sustainable fuelling to the broader aviation industry.
More than 250,000 flights have been performed using SAF (*IATA, 2020)
Lifecycle greenhouse gas emissions from SAF can be at least 80% lower than traditional jet fuel (*IATA, 2020)
2% (~7 billion liters) of the total aviation fuel supply could be SAF by 2025 (*Air Transport Action Group, 2020)
SAF uses sustainable fuel sources that do not compete with food or water, or damage biodiversity (*IATA, 2020)
