Air Traffic Control the Netherlands joins KLM's Corporate Biofuel Programme
Jan 2018 – Air Traffic Control the Netherlands has joined KLM’s Corporate Biofuel Programme, enabling it to compensate for the CO2 from staff business flights through the purchase of sustainable biofuels. “Our employees travel regularly outside the Netherlands to meet with our international partners. Air Traffic Control the Netherlands is delighted to be able to contribute to the sustainable development of the aviation sector by compensating for 100% of the CO2 emitted by our business flights with KLM. This is a great example of how we jointly facilitate aviation, in a sustainable way,” said CEO Michiel van Dorst. Other partners in the programme include Delft University of Technology, ABN AMRO, Accenture, FrieslandCampina, City of Amsterdam, Loyens & Loeff, Ministry of Infrastructure & Water Management, PGGM, and the Schiphol Group. Sourced through SkyNRG, the biofuels are produced from raw materials that do not have a negative impact on biodiversity and food production, says KLM.
