Decarbonizing The Future of Flight: A Climate Week NYC Panel Hosted by Sustainable Aviation Buyers Alliance (SABA)
The Sustainable Aviation Buyers Alliance (SABA), a collaboration between RMI, Environmental Defense Fund (EDF) and eight Founding Companies, is working to accelerate the path to net zero aviation.

Join us during Climate Week NYC for a panel discussion exploring the opportunities to advance sustainable aviation fuels (SAF), meet net-zero climate goals, and craft a greener future of flight.

Our panel discussion will explore:

• Upcoming opportunities for companies, airlines, organizations and even individuals to invest in SAF through a SAF certificate system to reduce their carbon emissions from air travel and meet their climate goals.
• A preview of SABA’s sustainability framework that will ensure SAF investment meets high-integrity environmental standards to fuel a greener future of flight.


Presentation on SABA’s Work to Decarbonize Aviation:

• Kim Carnahan, Head of SABA Secretariat
• Laura Hutchinson, Senior Associate, Climate-Aligned Industries, RMI
• Pedro Piris-Cabezas, Director for Sustainable International Travel, Environmental Defense Fund
