Microsoft announced on October 22, Thursday, that it will begin using cleaner-burning fuel on its business flights. The company will buy credits from a Dutch sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) company, and Alaska Airlines will operate the flights. The planes will use less-polluting fuel to travel between Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, which is near Microsoft’s main headquarters, and San Francisco, San Jose, and Los Angeles international airports. The Dutch SAF company confirmed that the fuel will be made in the U.S with cooking and plant oil.

In January, Microsoft mentioned that the company will come up with plans to help reduce air pollution. Their first step is to book lesser business flights and use cleaner fuel. The SAF company said that using cooking and plant oil has 75% less carbon dioxide compared to traditional fuel, which will help to heavily cut down emissions. 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.”
