Reducing our environmental impacts
ISO 14001 29% less noise
In 2008, Air France won
ISO 14001 environmental
generated by Air France-KLM
flights since 2000 thanks
to fleet renewal.
Air France-KLM fuel consumption
per passenger
To reduce its emissions, the Group implemented an ambitious
Climate Action Plan as early as 2007. This involved fleet rationalization, support for research into aviation and alternative fuels,
support for NGO environmental protection programs, and an
active contribution to international negotiations on a global
agreement to limit airline industry emissions.
Supplementing fossil fuels with “renewable” fuel that does not
compete with the food chain will help to reduce the airline
industry’s carbon footprint.
In addition to its flights, Air France’s environmental impacts
concern noise, water and energy consumption, and waste
management. Each of these areas is covered by a reduction
• The first flight powered by biofuel with observers aboard

aircraft from 2014 under a partnership with CEA. The fuel
will be produced in Eastern France.
Our combat
against deforestation
Since 2008, Air France has financed a largescale program to halt deforestation in Madagascar.
