Information on methodology and/or basis

Air BP fuels more than 6,000 flights around the world every day and is committed to helping its customers and partners meet the International Air Transport Association’s target of cutting net carbon dioxide emissions in half by 2050, relative to 2005 levels. For example, we supply sustainable aviation fuel, called BP Biojet, to customers in Norway, Sweden and the US. 


Since 2016, we have supplied BP Biojet at Oslo airport in Norway, which was the first in the world to use existing airport fuelling infrastructure to handle aviation biofuel. This BP Biojet is currently made using recycled cooking oil, which is blended with fossil jet fuel to a certified Jet A-1 specification. 


We also supply Bergen airport in Norway, Halmstad and Kalmar airports in Sweden and various airlines on an ad-hoc basis at a number of other airports across Scandinavia. In the US, BP Biojet has been used at Chicago O’Hare, one of the busiest airports in the world, and by Airbus at its facility in Mobile, Alabama. The BP Biojet supplied in 2018 reduced GHG emissions by more than 60%1 compared to conventional jet fuel. 


We are also making significant investments to scale up future production and availability of sustainable aviation fuels by working with industry partners such as Fulcrum BioEnergy and Neste.
