With the combined efforts of major economies around the world, finding ways to reduce carbon emissions and eventually achieve carbon neutrality has become a global mission. As a pioneer in building sustainable green aviation, Sino Jet attended the 27th United Nations Climate Change Conference (the 27th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, hereafter “COP27”). In the “China Corner” of COP27, Sino Jet cooperated with government departments, the business sector, think tanks and other organizations in the aviation industry to suggest ways to address climate change.

“Sino Jet will promote global climate governance by pushing for sustainability and green initiatives within the aviation industry and connecting the industry chain.”

During her speech at the COP27 conference, Wu Bing, President of Sino Jet Beijing, said that of all transportation means, air transport still remains the fastest, most accessible and most time-efficient in terms of human economic activity, that it plays an irreplaceable role in the development of the global economy and trade. “To achieve sustainable development within the aviation industry, one has to reduce carbon emissions as much as possible from all aspects, while increasing the economic benefits brought by carbon emissions per unit.”

Sino Jet is the largest business jet company in the Asia-Pacific region in terms of fleet size, and provides integrated business jet travel solutions. Under the overall carbon neutrality target of the aviation industry, Sino Jet is the first to announce its carbon neutrality target in the Chinese business aviation industry. It hopes to achieve carbon neutrality in its own fleet, ground support operations and office operations by by driving more than 20% of its managed aircraft to achieve carbon neutrality in flight operations by that date, and then ultimately achieve carbon neutrality in its overall business by 2035.

In April 2022, Sino Jet introduced a Dassault Falcon 7X business jet from France that aims to achieve carbon neutrality throughout each flight through various energy saving and emission reduction measures, paving the road for China’s business jet industry to implement sustainability initiatives. Based on the aviation industry’s goal to reduce carbon emissions and its own advantages in digital technology, Sino Jet has set a scientific path to achieve carbon neutrality. By mainly relying on saving energy, reducing emissions, and offsetting carbon, Sino Jet is able to work towards achieving carbon neutrality from six different aspects: digitalizing aircraft operations and processes, the use of sustainable aviation fuel, implementing green initiatives within its offices, reducing emissions through transportation, ensuring its supply chain meets green initiatives, and carbon offsetting.

Data shows that the largest source of carbon emissions in the aviation industry comes from fuel combustion, which accounts for 79% of total emissions. It is therefore crucial to find solutions that address how fuel is used. “As a business aircraft operator, Sino Jet is managing fuel consumption from a scientific standpoint and digitalizing aircraft operations and processes. We are committed to operating at airports that can provide sustainable fuel refueling services, and will always choose sustainable fuel,” Wu Bing said.

Sino Jet’s business ecosystem connects the whole industry chain, including aircraft and parts manufacturers, maintenance centres, airports, fuel suppliers, ground transportation, accommodation and food supply companies, etc. Sino Jet will gradually achieve carbon neutrality by promoting the development of technology and innovating across all aspects in saving energy and reducing emissions. At present, Sino Jet has reached agreements with several companies in the supply chain to start applying more low-carbon products and collaborating on researching technology to reduce carbon emissions .

“In addition, we have begun research into the manufacturing of new energy aircraft driven by electricity and hydrogen. The aviation industry will look into related technologies and measures to promote a circular economy in aviation operations to achieve green and sustainable development.” Sino Jet says that reducing carbon emissions within the aviation industry is a gradual, long-term, complex and diversified process, requiring technological breakthroughs, changes to company business models, regulatory rule upgrades, as well as the need to continuously explore solutions.
