With the development and use of more efficient aircraft that consume less jet fuel, research into new engine technologies, alternative sustainable fuels (Sustainable Aviation Fuels, SAF), better planning of air routes and the intra-industry climate programme CORSIA (Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme of International Aviation), the airline industry is taking various approaches to continually reduce its climate impact.
myclimate has been working together with various airlines such as the Lufthansa Group since 2007. myclimate offers the following services specifically as a partner of the aviation industry:
By partnering with Lufthansa and Swiss, myclimate was able to gain two more major allies for more climate protection. Both airlines are now offering their passengers the option to calculate the emissions of their air travel and make an equivalent voluntary climate protection contribution.
The airline Edelweiss has paved the way. Since June 2019, passengers have been able to calculate their individual carbon footprint during the booking process and then select a voluntary climate protection contribution with a simple click.
A calculation platform was created for Swiss with which the CO2 emissions associated with air travel can be calculated and an equivalent voluntary climate protection contribution can be made. These contributions support certified climate protection projects with the highest quality standards.
Take stock of your company’s CO2 emissions. Calculating your carbon footprint is the first step towards successful climate protection, as it helps you identify the most effective ways to reduce your company’s emissions.
Optimise your value chain and improve your company’s carbon footprint. Reduce your CO2 emissions and contribute towards achieving the climate goals of the Paris Agreement. Improve efficiency and benefit from potential cost savings as well as competitive advantages as a responsible and climate-friendly company.
Employees are part of successful corporate climate protection measures. After all, it’s people who make decisions, are creative and drive change. We therefore recommend actively involving your employees. Last but not least, you will also be able to strengthen your status as a progressive, attractive company.
You as a company can make a contribution to the financing of myclimate climate protection projects. In addition to reducing your own emissions, this can be an important building block in your climate strategy towards reaching net zero. By engaging this way, you are already gaining voluntary experience in factoring in the costs of unavoidable CO₂ emissions and taking responsibility for them as a company.
Showcase your climate protection efforts and position yourself credibly and transparently as a responsible and progressive company. Benefit from increased brand awareness and recognition and motivate other companies and individuals to take action on climate change. By committing to educational projects, you are also laying the foundation for a climate conscious future.
