Swedavia has an ambitious sustainability work since many years. All ten Swedavia airports will produce zero fossil carbon dioxide emissions from their own operations by 2020. Swedavia also makes an active work to promote the shift to bio jet fuel, which is one of the most important measures to reduce the air transport industry’s climate impact. Swedavia’s target is to have five per cent of all fuel used for fuelling at Sweden’s airports be fossil-free by 2025. Since 2016, Swedavia purchases bio fuel equivalent to the amount used in the company’s air travel for business purposes, about 450 tonnes of fuel annually.
