DECARBONISATION OF AVIATION
IS AN INDUSTRY PRIORITY
Avolon is committed to working with stakeholders across the aviation industry to reduce its carbon footprint and mitigate the impact of air travel on the environment.
We believe that the most impactful near-term action airlines can take to reduce their carbon emissions is to operate the youngest, most fuel-efficient aircraft available in the market. These can reduce the amount of fuel used per seat travelled by up to 30%.

A THOUGHT LEADER
ON NEW TECHNOLOGIES
IN OUR OPERATIONS
AND BACKING INNOVATION
We support future sustainable technologies by investing in innovation and collaborating with manufacturers. Through our Avolon-e subsidiary we have invested in eVTOL start up Vertical Aerospace, and we are active in supporting research into ways of scaling up production of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).
Avolon has partnered with Soisa Aircraft Interiors on a project to turn scrap material from old aircraft into craft products. Waste materials are donated to members of the Tarahumara tribe in Mexico, who make them into traditional artisan products like wallets, bags, aprons and tablecloths. Avolon’s sustainability strategy includes a commitment to support the circular economy by increasing the reuse and recycling of materials from old aircraft in a sustainable manner.
