KLM STORY

Consultancy Arcadis will be joining KLM’s Corporate BioFuel Programme (CBP). Arcadis will be buying in sustainable biojet fuel for all its business flights. This will enable KLM to invest further in sustainable aviation fuel.

Arcadis is the second company to join the Corporate BioFuel Programme within a short space of time. Air Traffic Control the Netherlands (Luchtverkeersleiding Nederland – LVNL) became a partner in the Corporate BioFuel Programme earlier this year. The other CBP partners include the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft), ABN AMRO, Accenture, FrieslandCampina, the Municipality of Amsterdam, Loyens & Loeff, the Ministry of Infrastructure & the Environment (I&W), the PGGM pension fund and the Schiphol Group.

Sustainable business operations at Arcadis

The fact that Arcadis will now be joining KLM’s Corporate BioFuel Programme is in keeping with its increasingly sustainable business operations. For example, Arcadis previously moved its offices to locations close to important train stations. And Arcadis’ offices themselves are becoming increasingly sustainable. Examples here include floor covering produced from used fishing nets and a circular coffee supply chain.

Sustainable biojet fuel

Sustainable biojet fuel delivers a structural contribution towards making aviation more sustainable. Unfortunately, this fuel still costs two or three times the price of traditional fossil-based kerosene. KLM is making every effort to stimulate the market, but cannot do so in isolation. Support from companies and other airlines is a necessary ingredient. For this reason, the participation of the partners in the Corporate BioFuel Programme is essential. Due to their contribution KLM is able to currently operate all the flight from Los Angeles in part with sustainable biojet fuel.
