JetBlue goes green
JETBLUE has announced it will offset carbon dioxide emissions (CO2) from jet fuel for all its domestic flights starting from Jul, which it expects will equate to seven to eight million metric tonnes of CO2 emissions per year.
To do so, the airline will continue to work with Carbonfund.org, as well as new partners EcoAct and South Pole.
The airline will also use sustainable aviation fuel on flights from San Francisco International Airport starting mid-2020.
“We’re preparing our business for the lower-carbon economy that aviation – and all sectors – must plan for,” JetBlue Chief Executive Officer Robin Hayes said.
