In his Spring Statement this afternoon, UK Chancellor Phillip Hammond has announced that he wants to give people the option to travel ‘carbon zero’. The government will call for evidence on offsetting transport emissions, with the aim of finding out what consumers understand about the emissions from their journeys and their options to offset them. It will also look at whether travel providers should be required to offer carbon offsets to their customers.
At ClimateCare we welcome this vital step in helping air travellers understand the environmental impact of their flights and what they can do to mitigate this impact through the use of high quality, additional Emission Reductions.
We work with clients across the travel sector, providing a range of customer carbon offset programmes. We are the selected carbon offset partner for IATA – the International Air Transport Association, which represents 290 airline and 82% of air traffic – and offer their members a turn-key customer offset solution.
At the other end of the scale, we operate and manage some of the largest customer carbon offset programmes in the world and work with partners to develop bespoke programmes that meet their exact requirements.
“ClimateCare has proved itself to be a trusted, credible partner in helping our members to address their carbon reduction responsibilities effectively. We value both its expertise in delivering world-class carbon offsetting programmes and helping our members to engage with their passengers on sustainability. We would encourage more airlines to get involved and take advantage of this expert resource.”
