World Fuel Services Goes Carbon-Neutral, Showcasing its Sustainability Capabilities
New Flight Department Sustainability Solutions
World Fuel Services together and its sister division, Kinetic Energy Group, are making it easier for flight departments and fixed-base operations (FBOs) to minimize their climate impact. We now offer sustainability solutions including renewable power sourcing with renewable energy certificates, evaluation and management of both on-site and off-site solar projects with power purchase agreements (PPAs), and sustainability strategy consulting.
These new solutions will offer aircraft operators and FBO partners a variety of sustainability solutions, including the ability to purchase carbon offsets and competitively access renewable power and fuel, allowing them to better respond to rapidly developing global emissions standards and advance their own sustainability programs.
“Kinect Energy Group’s deep experience in energy management and sustainability will enable us to create targeted solutions for our business aviation customers. We can quickly explore and deliver solutions designed to help our customers achieve their sustainability goals,” says Darren Fuller, vice president of business development for business aviation at World Fuel Services.
New FBO Sustainability Program
For its FBO and airport customers, World Fuel Services offers the ability to combine bulk fuel with carbon offset purchases, allowing FBOs to enhance their offering to their customers as well. We have updated our Total Aviation Software and TotalFBO applications to make it possible for FBOs to offer their customers the opportunity to buy carbon offsets for each flight when fueling.
In addition to offsets for fuel use, we provide sustainability consulting and solar project management services for an FBO’s ground operations. Our experts help customers navigate the myriad rules and regulations and help them maximize financial returns, which can be substantial.
