Members of Board Now

Join these pioneers who commit to flying on SAF

Leaders from around the world are stepping up by choosing to reduce emissions, innovate and accelerate. By participating in Board Now they commit to flying on sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), thereby reducing their travel emissions and supporting the growth of an industry that provides a sustainable alternative to fossil fuels. Organizations looking to reduce their emissions from aviation can become a member, regardless of country or industry.

The more members join, the bigger our impact will be.

Our Board Now Program has 3 types of members: Leader, Catalyst and Advocate. If you’d like to learn more on what differentiates them, contact us at info@boardnow.org
