Bizum joins forces with Avikor to decarbonise its corporate trips

The agreement enables Bizum to reduce the emissions from its plane trips by 80%

Bizum, the Spanish instant mobile payment solution, has joined forces with Exolum’s platform Avikor to decarbonise its business trips in line with its commitment to sustainability, enabling it to reduce the emissions of its corporate flights by 80%.

This partnership with Avikor enables Bizum, which already has over 21 million users, to go beyond environmental requirements by deciding to decarbonise its air travel.

Thanks to its cooperation with Avikor, Bizum strengthens its commitment to sustainability and facilitates the flow of ready money (#monedadecambio), thus contributing to the development of the sustainable aviation industry, as well as the promotion of the circular economy. This is the first step in Bizum’s strategy to make its operations more sustainable.

As for Avikor, it continues to engage partners that contribute to making a mission possible: to fly sustainably. Companies that wish to join the revolution can do so by simply contacting Avikor through its website www.avikor.com.

Since its creation, Bizum has been one step ahead with a value proposal that makes the daily lives of its users easier by simplifying payments between people as well as purchases at both online and traditional stores.

Avikor offers both individuals and companies the chance to fly more sustainably by enabling them to reduce the emissions from their flights through the use of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) merely by entering their flight code in www.avikor.com. Avikor is certified by AENOR (Spanish Association for Standardisation and Certification), an independent entity that validates the volume of sustainable fuel contracted by each passenger or company.

The model is flexible, adapted to each user or company and it can be acquired to eliminate the desired fraction of CO2 emissions as another extra service, regardless of the airline flown with.

The Avikor service also favours the development of the aviation biofuel sector, encouraging industrial activity in the circular economy. Sustainable biofuels are the best option to reduce CO2 emissions in the aviation sector since, over the course of their life cycle, they offset up to 80% of these emissions.
