2-day (7.5 hours) LIVE virtual classroom course

IATA Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF) - building a long-term sustainable aviation industry aviation training course

Special guest Q&A session (30 minutes) with Robert Boyd – IATA specialist on SAF

As ICAO Member States begin to implement the Carbon Offset and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA), there is growing importance for airlines to have a carbon strategy in order to ensure their business is not only compliant but also profitable. There are three options to comply with the environmental goals of the industry: eligible carbon offsets; sustainable aviation fuel; and low-carbon aviation fuel that meets the ICAO sustainability criteria. This two-day course will show you the implications of adopting each method, its challenges but also benefits. At the end, participants will be able to assess each option against their own company and drive an informed decision towards the best option for their business model. This training provides participants the tools to analyze carbon market dynamics, strategies and break down the low-carbon and sustainable aviation fuels concepts. You will receive a holistic view of each concept, including strategic implications and basic business case assessment.
