Commitment to Sustainability

Committed to Sustainability

Air Elite® by World Fuel now has 43 member locations that have become carbon neutral. Working with Air Elite’s network locations, World Fuel Services’ affiliate, World Kinect Energy Services, analyzed the member’s energy use and retired carbon offsets to compensate for their 2019 scope 1 and scope 2 carbon emissions.

 

Additionally, Air Elite and World Fuel Services has launched the same process to balance its 2020 scope 1 and scope 2 carbon emissions and has committed to becoming a sustainable network in 2020 and beyond. Read below to learn more about our initiative.

“Sustainability is an important responsibility for our industry and is a growing desire for our customers. In response, Air Elite has started its sustainability journey. I am proud of the 43 Air Elite members who have stepped up to make their operations carbon-neutral. That’s not an easy investment in this COVID era. Regardless, they have taken the first strides to set a path for Air Elite to be a carbon-neutral network, as well as supporting sustainability initiatives going forward.”

Air Elite’s 2019 carbon purchase utilized Forestry Carbon Offsets

Forests cover nearly 31 per cent of our planet’s land area and are instrumental in removing pollution from the atmosphere.

By purchasing carbon offsets from a forestry project through World Kinect Energy Services, Air Elite is contributing toward the Sustainable Development Goals of the U.N. and will also have a positive impact on climate change. World Kinect handled everything for the network.

“We applaud the decision of Air Elite’s leadership to pursue carbon neutrality. With our solutions, we are in the position to help network members easily achieve their carbon reduction goals.

With our first Sustainable Aviation Fuel shipments in 2014 to the addition of selling fuel bundled with offsets in our FBO software, World Fuel Services has and will continue to commit our resources to create a more sustainable future for our customers and the aviation industry.”
