What our launch customers and fuel suppliers had to say
“Airport Authority Hong Kong (AAHK) aims to transform Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) into the world's greenest airport and we work collaboratively with our airport business partners to develop innovative and leading sustainability initiatives that improve overall performance. We are committed to ensuring sustainability lies at the centre of our recovery strategy, daily airport operations and Airport City development.
AAHK supports airlines operating at HKIA for fuel transition to SAF to decarbonise the aviation sector, and ensures that HKIA is equipped with fueling infrastructure that enables airlines to receive, store and uptake pre-blended SAF. We are proud to support Cathay Pacific to uplift SAF for the first time at HKIA, and as a launch partner, we will encourage airlines to uptake SAF in the future.”
General Manager, Sustainability
“We are delighted to partner with Cathay Pacific and other like-minded corporates to make Hong Kong the sustainable aviation fuel hub of the Greater Bay Area and Asia. This is part of our climate strategy, managing our operational footprint because we recognise the impact of our consumption and procurement decisions, as well as our commitment to support our clients and Hong Kong in the transition to net zero.
HSBC aims to align our business activities to the Paris Agreement goal of net zero by 2050 or sooner with a three-pronged approach. We are mobilising finance to support our customers’ transitions. We are also accelerating innovation to scale up climate change solutions and building global partnerships to ensure investment is swiftly channelled towards truly sustainable projects. Finally, we are leading by example, setting ourselves a target to make our operations net zero by 2030 or sooner.”
Chief Executive, Hong Kong
“Climate change isn’t a challenge for future generations, but one that we must all tackle together, today. It requires all of us - businesses, governments, non-profit organisations, educators - to work together, through innovation, collaboration and bold thinking. As part of our commitment to achieve net zero, PwC is continuing to support a range of high-quality carbon reduction projects. We are proud to be partnering with Cathay Pacific in its Corporate Sustainable Aviation Fuel programme to support the development of sustainable aviation fuel in the region. It’s our hope that other corporates will join us towards transitioning into a net zero future and delivering a sustainable tomorrow."
Asia Pacific and China Chairman
“The Swire Group has set an ambitious goal to reach net zero emissions by 2050, as part of our SwireTHRIVE sustainability strategy. SAF is key to decarbonising the aviation sector, and to maintaining Hong Kong’s competitiveness as a leading international aviation hub that is ready for a low-carbon future. We are delighted to support the launch of Cathay Pacific’s Corporate SAF Programme and signal demand for low-carbon options from the business community in our home market. We hope that this pilot phase will provide valuable insights and pave the way for scaling up SAF uplift in Hong Kong.”
“Meeting net-zero emissions in aviation by 2050 is a challenge but one that the value chain can and must achieve by working together. As a fuel supplier, we know we have a critical role to play and have set ourselves the goal of becoming a global leader for SAF, with the ambition of supplying 2 million tonnes of SAF per year by 2025. Corporations do play a major role in sending clear and strong demand signals for more sustainable options like SAF, which is why we are happy to be collaborating with airlines such as Cathay Pacific to supply SAF for their Corporate SAF program. Shell is excited to enable a platform for different aviation stakeholders to come together to decarbonise business travel.”
