Our Actions Sustainable Fuel Carbon Credits

Actions

  • VistaJet commits to being fully carbon neutral across its entire business by 2025.

    Since introducing offsets to customers in January 2020, over 80% of VistaJet Members have opted in to compensate for their fuel use-related emissions by investing in certified carbon credits around the world.

    VistaJet has selected emission reduction projects of exceptional quality, adhering to the highest environmental standards and holding additional certifications. In addition to reducing global greenhouse gas emissions, VistaJet projects support the well-being of local communities in the countries the company flies to.

  • Sustainable Aviation Fuel is the most promising solution to reduce carbon emissions in aviation.

    Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) is a liquid and clean substitute for fossil jet fuel. Produced from sustainable resources like waste oils and agricultural residues, the use of SAF in its neat form can result in a carbon emission reduction up to 85% compared to conventional jet fuel.

    Through our partner SkyNRG, VistaJet is able to offer all its customers the most sustainable, cost-effective and scalable solution to decarbonize their flights: Biofuel Credit. The Biofuel Credit system allows anyone around the world to invest in SAF even when not physically available at the departure airport. SAF will be delivered to an airport near the production location, minimizing supply chain emissions.

    The SAF produced and delivered is tracked and verified, and the corresponding carbon emissions factors are calculated and allocated to the VistaJet customer, so only they can claim the carbon credits.

  • Introducing new efficient aircraft into our fleet such as the Global 7500.

    VistaJet’s shared fleet model means less aircraft being produced and enables higher utilization of each existing jet. VistaJet’s global infrastructure also allows for a reduction in repositioning flights. 

    Additionally, the company’s young fleet benefits from the latest technology for the most efficient flying and secures better fuel burn than older aircraft. Its new Global 7500 fleet is the most technologically advanced aircraft available today. The aircraft was manufactured with design for the environment in mind, including its new GE Passport engines that produce less noise and fuel consumption of approximately 2.5 litres per functional unit, and even lower for some longer-range missions. Its high-speed transonic wing cuts down on drag, further reducing fuel burn and emissions. 

  • Investment in technology has reduced fuel consumption by 8% per flight.

    VistaJet Ltd launched a comprehensive program to automate flight optimization and global fleet management. Through investment in AI and machine-learning technology, the company is working on predictive route algorithms to minimize ferry flights and reduce fuel consumption.

    To date, using the FLIGHTKEYS 5D flight management system, the company has been able optimize route, level and speed to reduce fuel consumption by 8% per flight. The heightened system automation allows VistaJet dispatchers to increase efficiency in flight re-planning, while 3D optimization in congested airspace minimizes the possibility of slot issues and delays.

  • Early booking improves fleet management, reducing unnecessary fuel burn.

    VistaJet has launched a discount incentive for clients who book early.

    For VistaJet Members, the early booking program can mean a discount on their rates and is available as an option for new contracts. Customers who are more flexible on departure city airport selection have already helped to reduce movement around London airports by up to 20%.

  • VistaJet has removed over 90% of single-use items across its fleet and replaced items on board with sustainable alternatives.

    Examples of these include packaging products using starch that fully biodegrades in one year, replacing plastic toothbrushes with those made of bamboo, sourcing low-impact detergents and cleaning products, and switching to beauty products packaged in glass.

    Additionally VistaJet has served meals on porcelain and crystalware for many years, avoiding unecessary waste from disposable tableware.

    Across the business, VistaJet partners with carbon neutral companies wherever possible and has requires sustainability accreditation for third parties.

  • GHG and TCFD audits

    Extensive Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emissions and Task Force on Climate-Related Financial Disclosures (TCFD) audits by South Pole, an award-winning project developer and global provider of climate action solutions, enables VistaJet to identify the carbon footprint of its operations and offices worldwide in order to define further sustainability opportunities and priorities.

    Electricity consumption represents 24% of the total emissions for VistaJet offices specifically. To decrease these levels, VistaJet has adopted electricity supplied from renewable sources for two of its largest offices and is assessing solutions for the others. Further schemes such as cycle to work and flexible location working are being rolled out to decrease employee emissions.

    GHG Emissions Audit

Sustainable aviation fuel

VistaJet primary emission source is aviation fuel, representing 89% of the total GHG emissions and comprising emissions from the production, processing, delivery, and combustion of aviation fuel.

While offsetting reduces carbon footprint indirectly, using sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), which has a lower carbon intensity, significantly and directly reduces these GHG's emissions – in its neat form, SAF's use can reduce total lifecycle CO2emissions by over 85% compared to conventional jet fuel.

VistaJet's innovative SAF Program ensures SAF accessibility for its customers globally – managed and provided by SkyNRG – together supporting the fast adoption of this crucially important energy solution.
