United Airlines renewed a contract with World Energy to purchase up to 10 million gallons of aviation biofuel through 2021. United uses biofuel on every flight departing Los Angeles (LAX), resulting in a 60 percent reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.
United Airlines became the first airline in the world to use sustainable aviation biofuel regularly in 2013. Currently, it is still the only U.S. airline to do so.
“Investing in sustainable aviation biofuel is one of the most effective measures a commercial airline can take to reduce its impact on the environment,” said Scott Kirby, president, United Airlines. “As leaders in this space, United and World Energy are setting an example for the industry on how innovators can work together to bring our customers, colleagues and communities toward a more sustainable future.”
The renewed commitment is part of United’s aim to reduce its greenhouse gas emissions by 50 percent by 2050. The reduction is the equivalent of removing 4.5 million vehicles from roadways, or all cars in New York City and Los Angeles combined.
