The European very light jet operator has added sustainability as a long-term company goal
GlobeAir has launched a new CSER (Corporate Social and Environmental Responsibility) roadmap 2020 and putting sustainability as one of the company’s long-term goals.
The company is using the hashtag #WeArePlanetA. As part of the initiative, it will now be possible to offset one’s carbon footprint for private jet flights on GlobeAir.
Aviation accounts for just 2% of all carbon emissions. Business aviation’s carbon emissions are about 2% of the aviation total, and 0.04% of global human-made emissions.
“We can’t ignore the fact that our actions have a direct impact on the planet. As a private jet operator, we are conscious of the status of the environment and committed to doing our part,” said Bernard Fragner, GlobeAir CEO.
He added, “#WeArePlanetA is our journey towards tackling the sustainability discourse at GlobeAir.”
In one of its first moves, the private jet operator has teamed up with AG to provide three-carbon offsetting opportunities to its customers.
GlobeAir sustainability projects
The main sustainable projects are the Forest Conservation Project in Brazil and a combustible mine gas degassing project in Germany.
Passengers can choose to add the offsetting option as an additional service to their booking via the GlobeAir’s online interface available on fly.globeair.com.
GlobeAir also promises to release certificates of engagement to those passengers who have chosen to offset their flights. They will also receive a yearly update on the sustainable projects they have supported.
The private jet operator will also engage in three different core areas which will help the company align with the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals by 2030.
Among many of the actions that it is committed to working on in the years to come, is SAF or alternative fuel, plastic-free cockpit and cabin, recycling and crew education on sustainability.
To achieve its long-term goals and develop a structured CSER strategy, GlobeAir has set up a sustainable-dedicated committee, led by GlobeAir’s marketing manager and One Young World Ambassador Laura Casati.
Last year the Austrian operator expanded its fleet of Cessna Citation Mustangs and launched a rebranding.
