Committed to Sustainability
We strive to help our community develop in a sustainable manner
As the leader in private aviation, we are fully committed to reducing the environmental footprint made by NetJets. Therefore, we have created a multi-tiered programme to address sustainability while continuing to examine all aspects of our business with environmental impact in mind.
A MORE ENVIRONMENTALLY FRIENDLY WAY TO FLY
Our position in the private aviation market comes with the responsibility to drive awareness about and encourage action for important issues industrywide.
Sustainable Aviation Fuel
Sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) can reduce greenhouse gas emissions by up to 80% compared with conventional jet fuel. In the United States, NetJets has committed to purchasing enough SAF to account for all flights out of both San Francisco, California and Columbus, Ohio. This totals up to three million gallons of SAF—an unprecedented volume of sustainable fuel in the private aviation space. We will continue to explore additional SAF purchase opportunities in the U.S. and Europe.
Blue Skies Carbon Offset Programme
NetJets launched the Blue Skies programme to allow Owners a way to seamlessly purchase the equivalent amount of carbon credits to ensure their flight activity is carbon neutral. Through this global programme, we partner with ClimateCare to directly support carbon projects that align to United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
Since 2012, our European operations have been carbon neutral, going above and beyond European Union regulations. NetJets will offset its administrative and training flights in the U.S. beginning in 2021, amounting to 1,600 flights annually.
