Iberia Group and Cepsa have signed an agreement to collaborate on sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) research.
The companies will combine expertise in green hydrogen and biofuels to advance cleaner aviation travel.
Cepsa has been producing biofuels for more than a decade and will now supply Iberia to cut down its carbon footprint.
Iberia has committed to achieving net zero by 2050 and using 10% SAF in all flights by 2030.
Javier Sánchez-Prieto, Iberia CEO, said: “For the decarbonisation of the aviation sector, the development, production and distribution of fuels of sustainable origin at affordable prices and in sufficient quantity to supply the airlines is essential. We trust that this agreement with Cepsa will contribute to this objective.”
“As a reference in the supply of fuels for the aviation sector, we share with the Iberia Group the common goal of promoting the decarbonisation of transport as a tool to combat climate change,” added Maarten Wetselaar, CEO of Cepsa.
