Charter Broker Victor Vows Softer Environmental Impact

Pledges reduction in carbon emissions from charter flights, promotion of sustainable alternative fuels.

Online on-demand charter broker Victor has pledged to reduce the carbon emissions of the flights it charters, find and operate routes with the least amount of fuel burn, and promote and increase the use of sustainable alternative fuels (SAF) in business aviation, the London-based company announced recently. It is starting these initiatives immediately.

It produces 50 percent less greenhouse-gas emissions than the petroleum-based alternative.

Specifically, Victor “guarantees” to double offset the CO2 emissions of each flight, reducing about 46,000 tons of CO2 emissions annually. Flight planner RocketRoute will assist Victor in identifying optimal routes that require less fuel burn, and Victor will work with SAF producer Neste and the European Business Aviation Association to promote awareness and drive the adoption of SAF.

“We must act now and encourage others to follow our lead rather than passively waiting for governments and legislation,” said Victor CEO and founder Clive Jackson. “The problem is only going to get worse, so the sooner we all start to prioritize the reduction and mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions, the better chance we have at preventing a 1.5-degree increase in the Earth’s average temperature.”
