Media Release – 24 March 2022

A report released today by the Sustainable Aviation Fuels Alliance of Australia and New Zealand (SAFAANZ) titled Bridging the price gap for Sustainable Aviation Fuel, has identified, amongst a number of other recommendations, the creation of a Jet Council as an immediate priority action for Government to accelerate the significant opportunity presented by the development of a domestic Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) Industry.

“Following the lead of the UK and its Jet Zero Council, Australia and New Zealand should immediately establish a ‘Jet Council’ to connect the various levels of Government with aviation industry stakeholders to guide the ongoing development of sustainable aviation policies,” said Shahana McKenzie, CEO Bioenergy Australia.

“As a priority, the Jet Council would work with the various levels of government along with key industry participants to guide and support pathways for SAF R&D in Australia and New Zealand, as well as guide the design and implementation of policies to overcome existing barriers to SAF development,” McKenzie added
