We love our planet and want to keep exploring it. Whether you're off on the adventure of a lifetime, an impulsive mini-break, the business meeting you just can't miss, or a reunion with family and friends, we love that you are out there enjoying it all.
From increasing cultural understanding to aiding economic development, there's no denying the positive impact travel can have on the world. But there are negative side effects too, and we know plane travel puts a significant strain on the environment. It's time to reconsider the choices we make when we want to fly.
Here's how you can get started.
There's no getting around it, aeroplane engines burn fuel, which releases Carbon Dioxide (CO₂). The more we fly, the more CO₂ goes into the atmosphere.
But some aircraft burn less fuel or emit less CO₂ than others. So we've started labelling these to help you make an informed choice when planning your travel.
We analyse the aircraft model flying the route, checking for fuel efficient engines and other modifications.
We calculate emissions based on factors like distance and cruise time. Since most emissions come from take-off and landing, direct flights are often the greenest.
Then we label flights that emit less than the average amount of CO₂. So you can identify eco-friendly flights and compare them with your other flight options.
Though we’re a global company – with offices across Europe, North America and Asia – we keep our own flying for work to a minimum thanks to video conferencing. But we know that face-to-face matters. That’s why we buy sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) to help with those essential journeys.
We’ve partnered with SkyNRG, the global market leader for sustainable aviation fuels. Their SAF is made from waste oils, like used cooking oil, and achieves up to 75% less CO2 emissions.
