... Summary of Sustainability Frameworks and Chain-of-Custody Requirements 49 report's writing, the CAA aircraft regulation40 is not final, and compliance strategies are still speculative. While the current Advanced Notice of Proposed Rulemaking does not yet mention alternative fuels as a means of reducing GHG emissions, it is possible that this will be added at a future time when the GHG benefits of using alternative fuels are more widely understood.

... 50 Tracking Alternative Jet Fuel A.2.1 Airport Carbon Accreditation51 ACI-NA's Airport Carbon Accreditation52 program bears an indirect relationship to the deployment of alternative jet fuel at airports. At Level 1, the ACA program certifies airports that have implemented a carbon management policy and reported their airport-specific GHG emissions.

... Summary of Sustainability Frameworks and Chain-of-Custody Requirements 51 Although there are more than 9,000 facilities with certificates under ISCC, most of them are involved in the supply chain of European road fuels, and there do not appear to be any producers of aviation fuel listed as certificate holders.59 A.2.5 Roundtable on Sustainable Biomaterials60 The RSB is a nongovernmental, global, multi-stakeholder coalition that promotes the sustainability of biomaterials and publishes a set of standards to which alternative jet fuels may be certified sustainable. RSB standards can apply to many forms of biomass whose processed materials are incorporated into many different products, including fuels.
