On October 22, Thursday, Microsoft announced its plan of using cleaner-burning fuel for its business flights. It will buy fuel credits from a Dutch sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) company, whereas Alaska Airlines will handle the flights. The less-polluting fuel will be used on flights between Seattle-Tacoma International Airport (near Microsoft’s main headquarters) and San Francisco, San Jose, and Los Angeles international airports. This is Microsoft’s first step in an effort to help reduce air pollution by using cooking and plant oil fuels. According to the Dutch SAF company, such fuels have 75% less carbon dioxide compared to the traditional one. Judson Althoff, executive vice president of Microsoft, stated, “We hope this sustainable aviation fuel model will be used by other companies as a way to reduce the environmental impact of their business travel.”
