Carbon offsetting program

We seek to reduce our own emissions and improve our products to help our customers lower their emissions

We seek to reduce our own emissions and improve our products to help our customers lower their emissions.

 

We believe that carbon reduction in aviation will be driven through:

  • more efficient operations.
  • better infrastructure.
  • new technologies.
  • lower carbon fuels.
  • supported by carbon offsetting where necessary.   


The Paris agreement on climate change sees 195 nations setting a path to keep global temperature rises below 2 degrees Celsius, and the aviation industry has set a goal to reduce emissions to 50% of 2005 levels by 2050.


Air BP is at the forefront of solution development to help the aviation industry achieve these goals. 


In October 2016 Air BP became the first aviation fuel supplier to achieve carbon neutrality for its into-plane fuelling services at over 250 of its operated locations and made a 10-year commitment to retaining the accreditation through adherence to a carbon reduction plan. Achieving carbon neutrality involves quantifying greenhouse gas emissions at Air BP operated locations from the point at which fuel is delivered to onsite airport storage facilities, to the sale of fuel ‘at the aircraft wing tip’. Carbon credits were purchased, with the support of BP Target Neutral, to offset the residual emissions.

 

Our BP Target Neutral programme helps customers to offset their carbon emissions so they can provide their customers with carbon neutral flying. We offset carbon emissions for BP staff travel through this programme too. 


Calculate your carbon emissions using our carbon footprint calculator! You can offset them through a range of environmental projects.
