SHV Energy has joined the Corporate BioFuel Programme (KCBP) by KLM.

The programme allows businesses with a corporate contract with the airline to ensure some travel uses sustainable biofuel.

SHV Energy – a group of specialised energy companies – claims it will reduce its headquarters’ CO2 emissions by 50 per cent.

Meanwhile, the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) has extended its participation in KCBP for a further two-year period.

Bram Graber, SHV Energy’s chief executive, said: “Participation in the KLM Corporate Biofuel Programme underscores SHV Energy’s strategic decision to actively contribute to the development and production of sustainable energy products. Within that context we are also investing in the first European facility for sustainable aviation fuel and bioLPG in Delfzijl, jointly announced with SkyNRG and KLM earlier this year.”

In 2018, TU Delft reduced its CO2 emissions by 19 per cent.

KLM says sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) could reduce CO2 emissions by as much as 85 per cent.

The airline has undertaken a number of environmental initiatives in recent years, including the use of recycled plastic bottles to make tools for aircraft maintenance.
