aireg and its members welcome Rolls-Royce as a member. Rolls-Royce manufactures engines for civil and military committed to mitigating the climate impact of nowadays and future aviation. This goal gets further pursued with the aireg-membership.
Melanie Form, member of the board and managing director, commented on the membership: “We are pleased to welcome Rolls-Royce as a member. Together with our members, we will continue to push on with the development of sustainable aviation fuels at the whole value chain from production to utilization.”
On behalf of Rolls-Royce Deutschland, CEO Dr. Jörg Au said: “Aviation is a highly positive force, as it connects the world. However, we have to ensure its sustainability. Already today, sustainable aviation fuels (SAF) have the potential to lower CO2-emissions significantly. The combination of this potential and our highly efficient jet engines brings us one step closer to provide net-zero emissions for our customers.”
Rolls-Royce pioneers with cutting-edge technologies to provide the greenest, safest and market-competitive solutions to cover the worldwide propulsion and energy needs. Rolls-Royce Deutschland is the only German jet engine manufacturer certified for the development, production and maintenance of modern jet engines for civil and military use. In the sectors where the company operates, it aims to play a leading role to reduce the net-carbon-emissions to zero until 2050 and the engagement in the area of SAF is part of that ongoing commitment.
