Corporate Jet Investor’s annual conference


Last month we attended Corporate Jet Investor’s annual conference in London on Monday 3 February. The two-day event was a great networking opportunity with senior executives and leaders from across the business aviation community attending. Under the session titled ‘Gone Green: why aviation needs to become sustainable now’ Tom Parsons, Air BP’s low carbon commercial development manager, addressed the arguments for and against offsetting as well as Air BP’s role in the development of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF).

Tom Parsons also represented Air BP at the European Business Aviation Association’s (EBACE’s) AirOps Europe 2020 event. It took place in Brussels from 4-5 February. Tom joined other panellists including Bruce Parry, EBAA’s senior environment manager, to discuss how FBO’s could be more sustainable. We also led a workshop covering everything from sustainable aviation fuel and carbon offsetting to carbon neutral operations.
