Comair Flight Services has launched its carbon offsetting initiative, the CFS Pure Flight Programme.
CFS is the first airline in Africa to go carbon neutral on all its flights and the offset cost is automatically included in the price of any of its charter flights.
The CFS Pure Flight Programme will offset aircraft CO2 emissions by supporting various projects that not only reduce greenhouse gas emissions, but also aim to alleviate poverty.
Many of these carbon offsetting projects also provide wider benefits in addition to carbon reduction, such as biodiversity, education, jobs, food security, health and well-being in developing countries.
In partnership with Credible Carbon, a South African carbon registry, CFS sources carbon credits from independently reviewed and accredited projects that actually reduce carbon dioxide emissions.
Comair Flight Services does not profit from these transactions in any way.
