Board A Green Plane, Dailey Renewal Retreat
Updated: Jan 15
Instead of avoiding flying altogether, the NRDC Natural Resources Defense Council (NRDC), which is working to monitor & encourage the airlines on their path to making significant changes that could have a lasting environmental impact.regularly issues an Aviation Biofuels Scorecard to encourage carriers to support the adoption of truly sustainable biofuels. In its most recent scorecard, from 2017, Air France/KLM Royal Dutch Airlines, Jet Blue, and United were ranked as “leading airlines” with the strongest commitments to the cause.
Air France began offsetting 100 percent of the carbon emissions on all of its domestic flights on January 1, 2020, meaning that more than 450 daily flights are now carbon neutral thanks to investments Air France is making in carbon-offset programs. Beginning this July, Jet Blue announced that it will offset the carbon dioxide emissions for all of its domestic flights. The International Civil Aviation Organization’s Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (known as CORSIA) has a goal of ensuring that all growth in international flight capacity after 2020 is carbon neutral. https://www.afar.com/magazine/jetblue-to-become-carbon-neutral-on-all-domestic-flights?
