Since the beginning of 2014, the members of NISA (Nordic Initiative for Sustainable Aviation) have cooperated with the aim of facilitating and strengthening the conditions for a more sustainable aviation industry. This includes a strong focus on the development of commercial-scale, continuous access to sustainable aviation fuels.
Accelerating commercial access to sustainable aviation fuel will lead to reduced emissions. This will benefit society as a whole to a great extent since the developments described also generates jobs and further development of advanced new technologies.

Over the years, NISA has launched and implemented a number of national and Nordic analyzes and published reports on possible solutions, barriers and assumptions which the industry is facing. Every year NISA has held conferences or workshops with Nordic and international participants. NISA has, on the last occasion, seen increased activity regarding
aviation issues, especially in Norway and Sweden where also the political
agenda includes the airline industry's challenges. With regard to the most recent event, held in
November 2018, interesting presentations are available at the following link: https://www.nordicenergy.org/article/nordic-leadership-in-sustainable-aviation-fuels-policies-technology-options-research-needs-and-markets/
NISA and its members participate in a number of projects involving the development of sustainable aviation fuels, electro fuels, electric aircraft, sustainable airports and other activities that focus on a future sustainable aviation industry. Participation in, or inputs to, political initiatives are also part of the activities of NISA and its members.
NISA is one of three founding members of the Fly Green Fund, established in Sweden. The fund's goal is to promote and participate in the development of sustainable aviation fuels by launching access for interested customers to fly on sustainable fuel.
Martin Porsgaard has been head of NISA since its inception. Inger Seeberg, Environment Director at CPH A/S is chairman of the NISA Board. NISA has a function board with frequent meetings, and also annual general meetings.
