This carbon offset report lists the total volume of carbon offsets processed by ClimateCare for Air New Zealand customers under the FlyNeutral carbon offset programme.

The carbon credits purchased for the FlyNeutral programme are held and retired on a range of registries around the world. When Air New Zealand customers buy the carbon credits for offsetting under FlyNeutral, those credits are removed from circulation in those registries, effecting the offset. This means they are either retired or cancelled at the relevant registries on which those credits were issued.

To make it easier to understand the carbon credit retirements or cancellations ClimateCare has processed under FlyNeutral, this report sets out the consolidated retirement or cancellation actions that ClimateCare has processed for each customer across the global registry network.

A link to the live registry view for each registry on which FlyNeutral carbon credits are held and then retired or cancelled for the FlyNeutral programme is below.
