Brazil’s GOL signs up to SkyNRG’s book-and-claim service


Sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) company SkyNRG announced that it has onboarded Brazilian airline GOL as the first partner for its book-and-claim programme called the ‘Project Runway’.

“GOL is the first Latin American airline to leverage the book and claim system, and they can now share the SAF price premium with corporates aiming to reduce their related Scope 3 aviation emissions,” said the company in the release.

Brazil’s largest fuel supplier Vibra Energia supplied traditional jet fuel to Gol, whose emissions of 180 metric tons of CO2 were then offset by the use of 50 tons of used cooking oil-based SAF provided by SkyNRG to the Schiphol Airport in Amsterdam.

By participating in the SkyNRG’s programme, GOL is eyeing to reach its voluntary SAF goals before mandatory rules come into effect. Brazil is expected to introduce SAF blending targets from 2027 onwards.

The partnership between Gol and Vibra was part of a pilot project to explore uses of book-and-claim system in Brazil.
