EasyJet Goes Carbon Neutral

November 19, 2019 – EasyJet announced it is going carbon neutral immediately. Europe’s fifth largest airline said it will become the first major airline in the world to operate net zero carbon flights. The offset projects EasyJet will invest more than $30 million over the next year have been certified to deliver carbon reductions that would not otherwise have happened and do not inadvertently lead to an increase in emissions elsewhere. EasyJet says they have already reduced the amount of carbon it emits every kilometer each passenger flies by more than one-third since 2000 by utilizing more fuel efficient aircraft and operating practices. The airline view offsets as a temporary measure to reduce their carbon footprint in the short-term while they work to support longer-term efforts, including the development of new technology.
