The SAS environmental program

SAS’s overall goal is to reduce emissions 20% by 2015. Fleet renewal is an important part of that strategy. To date, SAS has taken delivery of 27 state-of-the-art Airbus A320 and Boeing 737-700/800 planes.
These have replaced older models such as the MD-80, with fuel consumption and associated emissions in line with SAS’s target.
SAS’s varied fleet of Boeing 737s and A320s allows it to adjust capacity to demand, and ensures emissions are kept to a minimum. SAS also gives passengers and cargo customers the opportunity to offset their carbon emissions.

The emissions calculator can be found at Sasgroup.net/miljo alongside the 2013 Sustainability Report. SAS has reduced carbon emissions by some 15% over the past eight years and is one of only a few airlines that is ISO 14001 certified, proof that it takes its environmental responsibilities seriously.
