Cargolux and Bolloré Logistics have signed an agreement for the use of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) in joint operations.


The initiative will enable Bolloré Logistics to reduce its Scope 3 Greenhous Gas Emissions by at least 2,200 tonnes of CO2e, a reflection of both parties' commitment to sustainable operations.

The companies said the deal, covering 800,000 liters of SAF forms part of the Cargolux SAF program.


"Cargolux is strongly committed to the development and use of Sustainable Aviation Fuel and has foreseen investment in SAF-related projects over the coming years. The agreement we signed with our long-term partner Bolloré Logistics is a significant achievement, one we hope to build on in the future," said Domenico Ceci, executive vice president for Sales and Marketing, noting that this also highlights both of the companies' engagement for environmentally-sound operations.


Pierre Houé, deputy COO of Bolloré Logistics, noted that SAF is a "key solution" for Bolloré Logistics to decarbonize transportation and reach its carbon reduction targets.


"Building a strong partnership with a crucial partner like Cargolux is critical to enable the aviation industry to operate a transition towards a more sustainable future. We are very glad to engage in this journey together," Houé said.


The development and availability of SAF rank high on Cargolux's agenda.


In the statement jointly released by the companies, they noted that Cargolux has a dedicated SAF program securing the acquisition of current and next generation sustainable fuels. 


Meanwhile, in line with its "Powering Sustainable Logistics" CSR program, Bolloré Logistics committed to cutting 30% by 2030, compared to 2019, of its Scope 3 CO2 emissions generated by the execution of transport.


The ambitious goal, well below the 2°C trajectory, involves making a sustainable offering central to its operations.
