Teruel Airport reduces its carbon footprint

Air BP’s Valerio Ferro, Jesús Presa, Álvaro Carmena and Paula Álvarez, alongside RocketRoute’s Ralph Henschen and two F18 pilots, celebrate Teruel Airport's fifth anniversary.

Supporting our lower carbon focus, we’re delighted to be collaborating with Teruel Airport in Spain in its carbon offsetting initiative.

To mark its fifth anniversary, Teruel Airport (TEV/LETL) offset all carbon emissions from aviation fuel supplied by Air BP in May through BP Target Neutral, BP’s voluntary carbon offsetting programme.

This initiative has been designed to help customers like you reduce, replace and neutralise carbon emissions. How does it work? BP Target Neutral balances the emissions from aviation fuel at Teruel by purchasing carbon credits from projects around the world that have reduced emissions. Teruel was able to net its emissions from aviation fuel supplied by Air BP to zero for the month of May.

Projects within the scheme’s portfolio are chosen based on their contribution to UN Sustainable Development Goals and are independently verified and monitored in line with the International Carbon Reduction & Offset Alliance (ICROA) Code of Best Practice. They include a variety of programmes ranging from the installation of hydropower plants in rural China to biogas initiatives in India.

Our latest collaboration with Teruel Airport and Plataforma Aeroportuaria de Teruel (PLATA) is yet another exciting step towards our goal of achieving a lower carbon future!
