“We were the first to showcase the ease of carbon offsets at NBAA-BACE 2019 by offsetting all trade show activities during the convention week. This year, we are expanding beyond the show to include offsetting all contract fuel purchased around the world on October 12, 2021,” said Malcolm Hawkins, senior vice president, business aviation global sales, World Fuel Services.
“We want to showcase the availability of offsets and how customers can get started on their path to net zero through simple actions.”
Similar to 2019, all of World Fuel’s energy requirements during the planning and execution of NBAA-BACE, including transportation, booth construction and hotel accommodations for staff, will come from either sustainable sources or be compensated by carbon offsets arranged by its sustainability group, World Kinect Energy Services, a division of World Fuel. In a continued commitment to support education and awareness for SAF supply growth, World Fuel has also supplied SAF to Henderson Executive Airport (HND) and Atlantic Aviation at McCarran International Airport (LAS).
