Accelerating the Path to Sustainable Supersonic Travel
Committed to Net Zero Carbon by 2025
Driving Scalable Sustainability Solutions in Commercial Aerospace
Boom’s comprehensive sustainability efforts include mobilizing our value chain, collaborating with stakeholders across the global travel ecosystem, and leading advocacy to set new standards for travel.
Future-forward on SAF
Sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) is the most promising solution for decarbonizing aviation, which is responsible for 2-3% of global CO2 emissions.
SAF is an immediately available “drop-in fuel,” used without changing existing aircraft and infrastructure. It’s made from renewable feedstocks, like algae, waste oils, or forest residue—and even through recycling carbon dioxide removed from the atmosphere through direct air capture.
As a sustainable substitute for jet fuel, emerging SAF technologies can achieve truly net zero carbon operation.
Boom’s sustainability strategy is centered on leveraging and accelerating SAF solutions. Overture will be optimized to run on 100% SAF. Overture’s flight test program will be powered by AIR COMPANY’s AIRMADE™ SAF and Dimensional Energy.
Achieving Net Zero Carbon
Our roadmap to net zero carbon by 2025 and net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2040 begins with measurement — accurate, detailed emissions tracking — and reporting on our impact.
We strive to be an industry leader in acting on ambitious carbon reduction targets with transparent progress reporting.
We prioritize emissions reductions in all stages of build, design and flight — from renewable energy-powered manufacturing to optimizing Overture for 100% SAF.
We commit to using only quality carbon credits for unavoidable emissions. Our portfolio balances carbon avoidance offsets in the near-term with carbon removal solutions for the long-term — leveraging only removals to achieve net zero carbon by 2025.
2022 Sustainability Report
Boom’s 2022 report details the actions we’ve taken benchmarked against our 2021 report goals, moving us toward our commitment to net zero carbon by 2025.
Working with environmentally-forward organizations to accelerate a net zero carbon future.
Advancing our net zero commitments, Boom will purchase up to five million gallons of AIRMADE™ SAF on an annual basis over the duration of the Overture flight test program.
Dimensional will provide up to five million gallons of SAF annually, produced through Power-to-Liquid technology, for the duration of the Overture test flight program.

Net Good Summit
In 2024, Boom will host global sustainability thought leaders from more than 50 companies to accelerate the path to net zero travel. The 3rd Annual Summit will focus on three themes critical to creating systemic change in sustainable travel: enabling the exponential growth of sustainable technologies, integrating sustainability across the travel journey, and engaging and educating the traveler.
Scaling Sustainable Aviation Fuel Production
Boom examines how proven renewable energy trajectories can be applied to the SAF industry to support exponential scaling of production.
