US-based Alaska Airlines and Deloitte have reached an agreement to procure and use sustainable aviation fuels (SAF) through the carrier’s new corporate SAF programme.

The duo will partner to buy SAF certificates that offer an accounting framework for strengthening the clean fuel market. Besides, it helps captivate the emissions reduction value for corporate buyers.

Deloitte chief purpose officer Kwasi Mitchell said: “Deloitte is proud to work with Alaska Airlines to help increase the adoption of sustainable aviation fuel.

“Reducing aviation emissions is integral to protecting our climate and creating a more sustainable future.” 

By joining this programme, Deloitte aims to lower its business travel-linked carbon dioxide emissions with Alaska by nearly 1,050mt.

With its corporate SAF programme, Alaska aims to address some of the major obstacles to SAF production, including feedstock accessibility, facilities, transportation, storage, engine infrastructure, as well as demand from operations and customers.

Alaska Airlines Public Affairs and Sustainability senior vice-president Diana Birkett Rakow said: “Forward-thinking companies like Deloitte are leaders in the critical journey to bring sustainable aviation fuels to scale.

“Alaska Airlines is committed to a goal of net zero by 2040, and SAF is the major lever to decarbonise over the near and medium-term, but this is a new market, and we can’t get there on our own.

“The visionary and proactive engagement of partners like Deloitte to engage in using SAF certificates, or credits, to reduce their scope 3 emissions helps to establish the framework and economics for this market.”

In March, Alaska Airlines parent company Alaska Air Group unveiled its plan to invest $2.3bn to improve infrastructure across four airports in the US.
