Our Worldwide Sustainability Program
Reducing our environmental footprint through carbon offsetting measures and sustainable aviation fuel
Today, we’re excited to share our expanded Global Sustainability Program, a commitment to reducing the environmental footprint made by NetJets. As the leader in private aviation, we believe our position in the market comes with a responsibility to drive awareness and action for important issues industrywide. As such, we’ve developed a multi-tiered program to address sustainability while continuing to examine all aspects of our business with environmental impact in mind.
“Our sustainable aviation fuel purchase is crucial for the continued availability of the product in the market, and we’re excited to help create that opportunity, as well as to announce the next phase of our Global Sustainability Program.”Brad Ferrell, Executive Vice President, Administrative Services
Global Sustainability Efforts
- Purchasing enough sustainable aviation fuel to account for all flights out of San Francisco, California, where the fuel supply is located, and our home base of Columbus, Ohio, in partnership with Signature Flight Support. We will continue to explore additional SAF purchase opportunities in the U.S. and Europe
- NetJets Europe has been carbon neutral since 2012 and will continue to go above and beyond European Union regulations
- Offsetting all administrative and training flights in the U.S. beginning in 2021
- Continuing our global Blue Skies® program, which allows Owners to make their flights carbon neutral by purchasing the equivalent amount of carbon credits
To remain accountable, we will track a number of metrics, including percentage decrease in carbon emissions and miles offset to carbon neutral, to share in biannual updates with Owners, employees, and the larger aviation community. And we’re proud that our Global Sustainability Program aligns with Berkshire Hathaway’s commitment to the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals.
“There remains more to be done in the sustainable aviation space, and we look forward to being on the cutting edge of those innovations and evolving this program in our ongoing efforts to address sustainability in the air, on the ground, and with our team members.”Brad Ferrell, Executive Vice President, Administrative Services
