Carbon Credit Program Launched by Phillips 66 Aviation

Phillips 66 Aviation has partnered with 4AIR to launch a carbon credit program.

Phillips 66 is one of the largest refiners in the U.S. and a major contract jet and fuel supplier to private, commercial, and military aviation.

Through this program, flight operators and airports can offset carbon from jet fuel, gasoline, and diesel emissions. Emissions created by vehicles and operating are also included.

The 4AIR program has 4 different rating levels for clients to chose from:

  1. Requires a 100% carbon dioxide (CO2) offset.
  2. Requires a 300% offset to comprehensively offset emissions.
  3. Requires a 5% direct emission reduction.
  4. Requires a direct contribution to the Aviation Climate Fund.

“4AIR’s rating system is designed specifically for aviation and makes compliance with industry goals and sustainability efforts simple,” said Kennedy Ricci, president of 4AIR.

Lindsey Grant, Manager, Phillips 66 Aviation said, “We’re giving pilots and FBOs the right tools to help them on their carbon journey. We look forward to working alongside the 4AIR team to bring sustainable offerings to our customers.”

Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) emits 80% less carbon than jet fuel. However, SAF is not easy to make. So, it is difficult to make the switch.

Phillips 66 Aviation hopes to change that by converting its San Francisco Refinery into a place to produce SAF. They would like it to be one of the most significant SAF production facilities in the world.
