Top International Holding becomes Singapore’s 1st organization to join Air France-KLM’s SAF program
Top International Holding, a Singapore-based, global minerals and resources company, has become the first in Singapore to join the Air France-KLM corporate sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) program.
Representatives of the Air France-KLM Group and Top International Holding signed a contract Oct. 25 to affirm Top International Holding’s commitment in joining the program.
By joining the Air France-KLM corporate SAF program, Top International Holding commits to the purchase of SAF in 2022 and 2023 and therefore reduces its company footprint from business travel and supports its sustainability objectives by lowering CO2 emissions.
By working together, companies can bring sustainable aviation closer and stimulate SAF demand and usage.
“Top International Holding is the first company in Singapore to join our corporate SAF program, and we are delighted to welcome them as one of the pioneers in Singapore, supporting the key transition from fossil fuel to sustainable aviation fuel,” said Roland Coppens, general manager of Air France-KLM’s Southeast Asia and Oceania business. “Today marks the start of greater awareness among companies in Singapore to collaborate with us to make SAF available around the globe.”
Dato’ Victor Tan, CEO of Top International Holding, added, “Sustainability is embedded as a core component of our corporate strategy. We want to play our part in making a positive impact to the environment. Our decision to join the Air France-KLM corporate SAF program reflects our deep commitment to sustainable development as well as innovative and responsible aviation practices. We are excited about this new opportunity to partner with an industry leader and are confident that this will help in reducing CO2 emissions and contribute to preserving our natural resources for future generations.”
The Air France-KLM corporate SAF program offers a customized program depending on the sustainability ambitions of a company.
Based on anticipated travel, the company’s contribution will be used to purchase SAF within the agreed calendar years.
