Commitment to sustainability for Mother's Day
As part of Mother's Day celebrations, Latam Cargo, Kuehne + Nagel and Elite Flower joined forces to purchase more than 25,000 litres of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). The amount purchased would reduce the equivalent of the total emissions generated by a cargo flight on the Bogota-Miami route, carrying a large shipment of flowers, mainly roses.
In this case, the sustainable aviation fuel purchased was produced from used cooking oil, which after being treated is blended with traditional jet fuel. Considering that SAF has an attributed CO2 reduction factor of about 80% in its life cycle compared to conventional fuel, the companies purchased the necessary quantity of SAF to achieve the total emissions reduction on the announced route.
