Alaska Airlines announced plans to work with Neste, a supplier of renewable fuel products, in a partnership that will further their adoption in the aviation industry.

The Espoo, Finland-based company said it will help meet Alaska’s goal to “fly greener,” said Kaisa Hietala, its executive vice president for renewable products.

Alaska sees the collaboration as “another major step toward supporting the health of our communities and ecosystem,” it said.

The Seattle-based airline has partnered with other sustainable fuel companies in the past, including Northwest Advanced Renewables Alliance in 2015, with a goal of producing alternative jet fuel made from leftover tree limbs and branches after a forest harvest, and Hawaii BioEnergy in 2013, which was to use raw material for the biofuel that was woody biomass-based and was to be produced on local Hawaiian farmland
