30 May to 5 June 2018 is European Sustainable Development Week. Its aim is to promote sustainable development and all its challenges. On a daily basis, Air France is committed to limiting the environmental impact of its activities on the ground as well as in the air.
In terms of sustainable development and in particular sustainable mobility, here is an illustration of the efforts produced by the Air France-KLM group including those of Air France:
• 11% less CO2 emissions since 2011 (g. CO2 per passenger per km)
• 21% less energy consumed since 2011 (MWh)
• 8% less waste since 2011 (tonnes)
• 5% less water consumed since 2011 (m3)
• 35% reduction in the noise footprint compared to 2000
• 12.8 million reconditioned, reused and recycled headsets at Air France
• 126,500 trees planted in Panama thanks to the CO2ZERO KLM programme
• 350,000 hectares protected thanks to the reforestation program in Madagascar supported by Air France
Meeting the climate change challenges
The Air France-KLM group has drawn up a Climate Plan to reduce its impact on climate change. This plan consists of 6 priorities, including the promotion of alternative sustainable fuels for the aviation industry. Air France-KLM aims to reduce its CO2 emissions (per passenger per kilometre) by 20% by 2020.
