The airline industry produces 2%-3% of the global output of CO2. KLM is convinced that sustainable aviation is possible, which is why it has adopted a pioneering role in the airline industry aimed at pushing back climate change.
KLM has an extensive range of measures and initiatives in place to achieve this. Important elements are adjustments to the fleet, fuel-efficient flight and compensation. KLM is committed to developing biofuels in the midterm.
KLM also stimulates and supports scientific research into new technologies and the development of the aircraft of the future.
A Unique Partnership
KLM has been working with WWF The Netherlands in a groundbreaking partnership since 2007.
Together we are striving to make aviation more sustainable by cutting CO2 emissions and developing a market for sustainable biofuels. Sustainable in-flight catering is one of the other aspects of our partnership. WWF-NL advises us on the sustainability aspects of fish, palm oil and soya. In addition to this, KLM supports WWF The Netherlands’ conservation projects in the Coral Triangle and on Bonaire.
This partnership enables us to contribute to WWF-NL’ aim to achieve 100% sustainable energy by 2050. As it is impossible to imagine today’s society without flying, it is important for KLM to take responsibility and put concrete measures in place with the objective of minimizing the impact on nature and the environment.
