The Air France-KLM Group and its airlines are continuing their efforts to reduce their environmental footprint as part of a transparent and responsible approach to the challenges of global warming.

On November 29, the Group committed to having its CO2 emissions reduction targets validated by the independent reference organisation SBTi, founded by the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), the United Nations Global Compact and the World Wildlife Fund (WWF). SBTi assesses and checks companies’ CO2 emissions reduction targets based on a scientific approach and criteria, ensuring that the targets are in line with the Paris Agreement.

The letter of commitment signed on November 29 with SBTi places the Air France-KLM Group and its airlines in the trajectory determined by this agreement, which aims to limit global warming to well below 2°C. Air France-KLM is one of the first European airline groups to have its decarbonisation trajectory validated by SBTi.

This new important step in the Group’s decarbonisation strategy comes in addition to its objective of net-zero emissions by 2050.
