Your holiday flight will have a negative environmental effect. Aeroplanes travel in the upper atmosphere and release greenhouse-gas emissions which contribute to global warming.
Climate Care is an organisation which enables you to repair the damage. Your payment will fund projects that reduce emissions by the same amount that your individual share of the flight creates, making your presence climate neutral.
Climate Care does this by funding renewable-energy projects or reforestation which either reduce emissions at source or absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. The work of Climate Care is monitored by a non-government environmental committee, including members such as the World Wildlife Fund and Forum for the Future.
Find out how much your flight adds to global warming and how much it costs to offset. Then you can be confident in the belief that your journey is not adding to global warming.
