Judge’s Feedback on 4AIR:

  • “There are many good things to say about this project, and it truly does seem to be on the leading edge and addresses a market gap. That said, it also feels like it’s in its relatively early stages - with much more potential. I believe my scores will push it into an award category - but I also think this will be an even stronger submission in the years to come with more concrete metrics that can be reported.”
  • “The sustainable mission and undertaking of this project are impressive. The attention to reducing the impact of marketing materials and environmental footprint also shows a commitment to sustainable practices. Although the use of verified carbon offsets is sometimes deemed controversial - offsetting a company’s entire carbon footprint via offsets and company attributes is nonetheless commendable!”
  • “The metrics listed here are important and impressive, even in their early stages. The established partnerships appear to be key for the future adoption of SAF. I predict these numbers/metrics will only improve.”
  • “Engaging with fuel producers, suppliers, FBOs, end-users, and environmental and industry associations creates an Innovation model for the concerned industry stakeholders.”
  • “Lays out a solution to a pressing problem: decarbonizing aviation. Addresses and tries to reduce costs, while anticipating and addressing credibility concerns as SAFs scale up.”
  • “Decarbonizing the aviation sector is a key challenge to solve, and this solution seems like it can have a great impact on that goal, as well as reduce the cost of SAF, which will be crucial to its uptake.”
