Statement on court ruling Fossielvrij/KLM

Our communication about sustainability must be honest and transparent. We have already taken important steps in this regard and have not used the 19 communications that were central to this case for some time now. We are pleased that the court has ruled that we can continue to communicate with our customers and partners about our approach to making aviation more sustainable. We are continuously learning how best to include them in this.

 We consider awareness and communication about sustainability goals, activities and dilemmas essential. In this way we reach governments, fuel suppliers, knowledge institutions, NGOs, aircraft manufacturers and customers, all parties who are needed to make flying less polluting. It is good that the court gives us more clarity about what is possible and how we can continue to communicate transparently and honestly about our approach and activities.

 We are studying the ruling and will return to it substantively at a later date.
