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:
With Lufthansa and Swiss, myclimate was able to win two more major partners for climate protection. As of today, both airlines offer their passengers the possibility to voluntarily make their air travel CO₂-neutral via myclimate.
The airline Edelweiss has made headway. Since June 2019, passengers have been able to calculate their individual carbon footprint during the booking process and select the offsetting option with a simple click. Andreas Meier, Head of Corporate Communications, talks about motivation, the process and initial findings.
