SAS announces new environmental strategy
Scandinavian carrier SAS Group has unveiled a new environmental strategy to reduce its emissions output.
The airline aims to cut environmentally-damaging greenhouse gases, generated from its aircraft, by 20% within the next 12 years.
In the long term, SAS' management hopes to meet the International Air Transport Association's zero emissions goal by 2050.
The airline's environmental target is based on each airliner within the fleet halving carbon dioxide emissions by 2020. During the same period, SAS expects passenger figures to climb 4%.
To reduce emissions, SAS will mix jet fuel with renewable resources and introduce unconfirmed energy saving measures.
Other developments that will help reduce SAS' carbon emissions include more efficient aircraft, alternative fuels and less energy consumption.
Apart from making aircraft more efficient, SAS also plans to provide employees with environmentally-friendly company cars.
