Accelerate the world's transition to sustainable aviation through digital technology
WHY WE DECIDED TO ACT
We want to help airlines kick-start the green shift
Each year, almost 660 million tons of C02 are emitted by air transport, this is more than 20,000 kg of C02 per second. Considering the annual increase in air traffic CO2 emissions are expected to grow by 45% in the next 15 years.
We have decided to act by developing innovative solutions to help airlines reduce their costs and environmental impact. SkyBreathe® eco-flying solution was born in 2013 after 5 years of R&D and testing under the Clean Sky Project.
Today considered as the world’s leading solution, SkyBreathe® enables airlines to ensure a reduction of up to 5% in their fuel consumption, which translates to millions of dollars saved each year since jet fuel represents 30% of their costs, and thousands of tons of CO2.
"SkyBreathe® is one of the most significant innovations of the last years in terms of mobility.Bertrand Piccard
