CEVA Logistics joins United Airline’s sustainability initiative, Eco-Skies

CEVA Logistics has joined United Airlines’ sustainability initiative, the Eco-Skies Alliance.

The carrier said in a statement that through its Eco-Skies Alliance, it is partnering with businesses such as CEVA Logistics to power future flying in a more sustainable way.

CEVA Logistics and other Eco-Skies Alliance companies are working with United to collectively purchase approximately 3.4m gallons of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) this year.

“With its nearly 80% emissions reductions on a lifecycle basis compared with conventional jet fuel, this is enough SAF to eliminate approximately 31,000 metric tons of greenhouse gas emissions, or enough to fly passengers more than 200m miles,” said CEVA Logistics.

Mathieu Friedberg, Chief Executive Officer of CEVA Logistic, also stated, “At CEVA, we deliver responsive logistics for our customers, and as part of the CMA CGM Group, we’re strongly committed to acting for the planet in the areas of climate change, air quality and biodiversity.”

“With our participation in the United Eco-Skies Alliance, CEVA is taking tangible action today, with an eye on the solutions of tomorrow. Offering a SAF option to our air cargo customers in partnership with United demonstrates CEVA’s commitment to a more sustainable supply chain.”

“We applaud the participation of each member of the Alliance.”

Says Scott Kirby, Chief Executive Officer at United Airlines added, “While we’ve partnered with companies for years to help them offset their flight emissions, we applaud those participating in the Eco-Skies Alliance for recognising the need to go beyond carbon offsets and support SAF-powered flying, which will lead to more affordable supply and ultimately, lower emissions. This is just the beginning. Our goal is to add more companies to the Eco-Skies Alliance, purchase more SAF and work together to find other innovative paths towards decarbonisation.”
