"When you book a flight with AEROAFFAIRES, 100% of the CO2 emissions generated by the flight are compensated via a certified reforestation project."
AEROAFFAIRES set itself the goal of taking up this challenge in 2020 and is leading the way in the business aviation sector: juggling between reducing the climate footprint and constantly increasing traffic.
Authorities, airlines, aircraft manufacturers and engine manufacturers have been working for years to solve this difficult equation while this sector does not have a very good reputation in environmental matters.
François-Xavier CLERC, CEO at AEROAFFAIRES, decided to make his company the first player in business aviation to offer its customers an ecological and responsible approach when chartering commercial aircraft, a private jet or a helicopter.
This initiative, SkyCO2, wins the support of customers of this family-owned business aviation brokerage firm. Whether they are traveling in a private or professional capacity, be it solicitations from CAC 40 companies or SMEs, AEROAFFAIRES customers are very enthusiastic about this approach! Indeed, in addition to the ecological aspect that attracts individuals, companies see in this initiative, a useful lever to achieve CSR objectives ever more demanding.
AEROAFFAIRES proposes, via SkyCO2, to offset carbon emissions from flights by supporting a major project to preserve primary forest in Peru. This "Martin Sagrado" project, operated by the social enterprise PUR Project in the San Martin region, is registered as a UNESCO World Heritage Biosphere Reserve. It is part of a regional program of ecosystem rehabilitation and plans to capture 194,000 tonnes of CO2 by preserving 7,400 hectares of forest per year. Martin Sagrado is certified VCS (Voluntary Carbon Standard) and thus allows to deliver carbon credits corresponding to the carbon sequestration potential of the project.
AEROAFFAIRES proves that business aviation can also reduce its impact on the environment. If the goal is ambitious, the means to achieve this are simple: PUR Project provides AEROAFFFAIRES a tool to calculate the carbon footprint (in tons CO2 equivalent) of flights that customers have chosen to compensate. On the basis of these emissions, a number of equivalent credits are issued by PUR Projet thus ensuring the carbon neutrality of the flight.
AEOAFFAIRES, since 1991, has become a major player in business aviation in the world, as a specialized aviation broker in business aviation. Today, it is striving to shine through its sustainable and clean actions.
