Air BP, the aviation division of fuel company BP, has become the first supplier to achieve carbon neutrality for its into-plane fueling services across an international network of more than 250 operated facilities. The target was achieved as part of a planned two-year program, and confirmed by independent sustainability specialist ERM CVS.
Air BP has been able to quantify the greenhouse gas emissions at each of its operated locations, including delivery, storage and sales. These amounts were then offset as carbon credits, with the equivalent investment made in low carbon development projects around the world. A number of initiatives are also in place to reduce the emissions at the sites through better technology and by increasing operational efficiency.
Jon Platt, Air BP vice president, said, “We are extremely proud to achieve this significant accreditation. It demonstrates we are 100% committed to our environmental strategy, as well as support the aviation industry’s ambitious carbon reduction goals. We are leading by example, and expect this recognition will inspire and influence others.”
