Reducing CO₂ emissions
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.
How do we calculate emissions?
We analyse the aircraft model flying the route, checking for fuel efficient engines and other modifications.
We calculate emissions based on factors like distance, capacity 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.
How we travel
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.
