For every flight you book with us, offsetting your carbon emissions is included, to allow for you or your business to give back to the planet.
The global aviation industry generates CO2, contributing to climate change, which is one of the biggest global challenges we face right now. That is why, for every flight booked with us, your carbon emissions are included. Working with Climate and Development experts ClimateCare, by offsetting the carbon emissions from your flight, you will be supporting projects that not only cut carbon but also alleviate poverty and improve lives.
With every flight you book with us, offsetting your carbon emissions is included, to allow for you or your business to give back to the planet.
Your dedicated Account Manager will calculate the emissions based on the variables of your flight – the duration and the aircraft category.
Your carbon offsetting payment is included in the cost of your flight. This will be listed as “Carbon Offsetting”.
ClimateCare will then offset these emissions through projects that cut carbon and improve lives.
The projects have been selected to provide a combination of the highest quality emission reductions whilst also delivering the most sustainable development impact. These projects include:
We have categorised carbon emissions on a varying scale per aircraft category type. This allows us to be as accurate as possible when calculating your carbon emissions. Our calculations include conservative assumptions, giving you peace of mind and additional reassurance that your total carbon emissions for your flight will be offset.
The projects you will be contributing towards are high-quality projects delivering significant climate and sustainable development impacts around the world. These include fuel-efficient stoves, water filters and renewable energy. You can find out more about these projects here.
The projects follow the same robust process as set down by the UN’s Clean Development Mechanism. They meet a recognised international standard for emission reductions. These processes ensure that the emissions reductions and social impacts are real and verified.
