Being part of the Climate Jet Club means flying responsibly (using the greenest possible aircraft); but it also means proactively compensating and/or removing greenhouse gases.
A neutral flight means the Passenger is investing in a means to not emit greenhouse gases to the tune that was emitted during the flight.
A negative flight means the Passenger is investing in the removal of a greenhouse gas.
Our partnership with ecoLive and myclimate gives our members access to internationally recognized sustainability standards, audited contributions and meaningful projects around the world.
Our partnership with Charm Industrial or Climeworks gives our members access to an innovative technology to remove carbon from the atmosphere and store it for thousands of years.
The Club is also investigating partnerships to permit the removal of Methane, which has a shorter lifespan in the atmosphere than CO2 but contributes more to Global Warming.
By purchasing a Climate Club Jet Card, our Members pledge their support to offsetting or capturing and have access to fund traceability to measure their impact.
Locally produced efficient Upesi stoves reduce wood consumption in Kenya and help to preserve the unique vegetation and biodiversity of Kakamega rainforest. The stoves have a cleaner burning process and thus decrease indoor air pollution and associated acute respiratory
infections in women and children. Moreover, savings in burning unsustainably harvested fuel wood cut down CO₂ emissions.
The primary objective of the programme is to disseminate water purification systems to low-income households and institutions such as schools, starting in Uganda. Carbon finance is used to give households access to the clean water technologies thereby improving the livelihoods and health conditions of thousands of people and at the same time reducing CO₂ emissions by reducing the consumption of non-renewable firewood and charcoal.
Charm uses plants to capture CO₂ from the atmosphere. Charm converts biomass into a stable, carbon-rich liquid and then pumps it deep underground. This removes CO₂ permanently from the atmosphere, out of reach of wildfires, soil erosion and political folly.
Climework captured carbon dioxide directly from the air; removing unavoidable and historic CO₂ emissions. The air-captured carbon dioxide can either be recycled and used as a raw material, or completely removed from the air by safely storing it. Direct air capture, therefore, is one of the key ways to stop global warming by reducing the amount of potentially harmful CO₂ in the Earth’s atmosphere.
The machines consist of modular CO₂ collectors that can be stacked to build machines of any size. Climeworks direct air capture machines are powered solely by renewable energy or energy-from-waste. Grey emissions are below 10%, which means that out of 100 tons of carbon dioxide that our machines capture from the air, at least 90 tons are permanently removed and only up to 10 tons are re-emitted.
