Airline Carbon Credit

Why Airlines Need Carbon Credits

Airlines are major contributors to global greenhouse gas emissions. Barring a technological shift to electric planes, airlines will continue to burn jet fuel for the foreseeable future, making up something on the order of 2.5% of global greenhouse gas emissions. Improved operational efficiencies and the introduction of advanced biofuels will reduce emissions, but at the end of the day, carbon credits will continue to be needed to mitigate their overall effect on our global climate.

Climate toolbox: Offsets are one element of corporate climate action

At current pace we’re going this means we have a window of just over 8 years left until this carbon budget is used up. Going beyond this temperature increase would likely cause an immense rise in unpredictable risks.

Zimbabwe, Africa. Lilian Manyanga, standing in the relentless sun among rows of sorghum plants and holding a large shovel, is showing us around the Tashinga Community Garden of the Hurungwe District.

But now," she gestures around her and smiles, "- now I can pay their school fees without even missing a term!"
