Sustainable Aviation Fuels: How you can contribute?


We are currently initiating outreach programs to airlines, requesting the inclusion of SAFs in their operations.

You can also play a pivotal role in this movement! We have prepared an email template that you can use to lobby airlines about SAFs. All you need to do is personalize your letter, find the email addresses of the customer services of the airlines you use, and hit send!

Let’s do this together!

Subject: Urgent Action Needed: Transition to Sustainable Aviation Fuels

Dear [Airline Company Name],

I hope this email finds you well. As a researcher and a member of the International Society of Behavioral Nutrition and Physical Activity (ISBNPA), I am writing to express my deep concern regarding the aviation industry’s impact on climate change. Specifically, I would like to address the urgent need for airlines to transition to Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAFs).

Why SAFs Matter for Researchers and Conference Attendees:

  1. Reducing Carbon Emissions: As researchers, we are committed to advancing knowledge and addressing critical global challenges. However, our frequent travel to scientific conferences contributes significantly to carbon emissions. SAFs offer a viable solution to reduce our environmental footprint.
  2. Role Modeling: By advocating for SAFs, researchers can lead by example and inspire positive change within our academic community. Our choices matter, and supporting sustainable travel options aligns with our commitment to science and the planet.

Challenges and Opportunities:

  1. Limited Options: As a researcher attending conferences like the ISBNPA annual meeting, I find my sustainable travel options limited when airlines do not prioritize SAFs. We need more accessible and affordable SAF-powered flights to make responsible choices.
  2. Collective Impact: If airlines collectively commit to SAF adoption, we can create a significant positive impact on global emissions. Collaboration between airlines, researchers, and policymakers is crucial.

Our Call to Action:

  1. Commitment: I urge [Airline Company Name] to publicly commit to increasing SAF usage in its operations. Transparency in reporting SAF adoption progress is essential.
  2. Collaboration: Engage with SAF producers, research institutions, and other airlines to share best practices and accelerate SAF deployment.
  3. Advocacy: Support policies that promote SAF development and incentivize investment in sustainable aviation.

As a researcher, I believe that our collective efforts can drive positive change. Let us work together to ensure that sustainable travel becomes the norm for conference attendees worldwide.

Thank you for your attention to this critical matter. I look forward to hearing about [Airline Company Name]’s commitment to SAFs and its impact on researchers like myself.
