Air Partner makes carbon offsets opt-out for jet card and charter clients as part of new sustainability strategy
Jet card broker Air Partner has launched its new strategy to deliver positive change in the aviation industry by embedding sustainable practices into the core of its business.
The group’s recently appointed ESG manager, Greg Charman, will ensure focused engagement with a new sustainability strategy designed to improve internal operations, from staff development to carbon reduction programs.
At the same time, Air Partner will be encouraging stakeholders to act responsibly through meaningful partnerships with Raleigh International and Climate Care, to secure a more sustainable environment for future generations.
As part of their commitment to mitigate these effects, Air Partner has now introduced auto-enrolment for all its private jet and group charter clients into a carbon offsetting scheme.
Through an ongoing partnership with Climate Care, carbon emissions from flights are calculated and offset by adding a cost directly to the price of the flight.
Previously operated carbon offsetting on an opt-in basis. Clients can choose to opt out of the scheme should they wish.
Mark Briffa, CEO, Air Partner, says: “We are committed to acting responsibly with our people, our clients, and our partners to deliver positive change through our evolving sustainability strategy, a natural part of our overall business strategy. As a global aviation services group with a wide network, we can make a difference, through local initiatives or larger scale international projects, to create a better world for the future.”
Additionally, Air Partner is actively reducing its internal resource consumption and the amount of carbon emissions the offices produce.
Actions include working towards all offices going paperless by the end of 2022, encouraging online training courses, instead of face to face, whenever possible, increasing the use of renewable energy in its offices, and partnering primarily with catering companies which have a robust sustainability policy in place.
