|ALC carbon outcome||Enabling BP or third parties to meet their low carbon objectives|
8,400 tonnes CO₂e [Jan-Dec 2018]
The aviation industry is taking action to reduce its carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and has set out ambitious climate goals, including carbon neutral growth from 2020 and a 50% reduction in carbon emissions by 2050, relative to 20051.
As a company that fuels more than 6,000 commercial and private flights around the world every day, Air BP wants to help our customers meet their goals. We work with BP Target Neutral (BPTN), our carbon offsetting programme, to create a low carbon initiative that allows aircraft operators to offset the carbon emissions related to the fuel they buy from us. BPTN helps support emission reduction projects around the world, such as forest conservation in Zambia and renewable energy in China, through the purchasing of carbon credits. As well as generating carbon credits, the projects bring economic, social and environmental benefits to local communities.
Customers who signed up for this offer in 2018 included Signature Flight Support and Victor, the leading on-demand jet charter business. Between them and RocketRoute MarketPlace, more than 8,400 tonnes of carbon emissions have been offset since they launched their programmes.
