Emirates is stepping up its initiatives to reduce carbon emissions by investing $200 million in a new fund. This will invest in the next three years in research and development to reduce the impact of fossil fuels. With the announcement, Emirates is taking on a more prominent role in sustainability. Emirates has no choice but to invest in SAF.

For some time, it has been perceived that Emirates is behind its competitors on sustainable aviation initiatives. Whereas its neighbor Etihad Airways has been actively pursuing initiatives to become more sustainable, Emirates kept a low profile. Behind the scenes, the Dubai-based carrier has been very active, as Chief Commercial Officer Adnan Kazim told AirInsight in an interview at the 2021 Dubai Airshow.
