Blue Skies®

A More Environmentally Friendly Way to Fly

In 2015, we launched Blue Skies By NetJets® to offer our Owners a more environmentally friendly way to fly. We are thrilled to continue offering this program for current and new Owners and encourage all Owners to enroll.

Review Our

Carbon Offset Program

By joining Blue Skies, participating Owners will purchase an equivalent amount of carbon offsets to the carbon footprint of their annual flight hours—calculated by multiplying the carbon offset hourly rate for their aircraft type by total share size. Because of our partnership with ClimateCare®, your Blue Skies contribution goes directly toward supporting projects chosen by NetJets that reduce global CO2 emissions and ultimately improve lives.
Carbon Offset Hourly Rates
Example: 50-hour Sovereign Share
Carbon offset hourly rate for Sovereign = $34.16/hour
$34.16/hour x 50 hours = $1,708.00 total invoice for yearly carbon offset

Based on carbon fuel burn ($8.25/unit in 2019), the following chart shows our carbon offset hourly rates by aircraft:

PROJECTS IN THE BLUE SKIES PROGRAM

​​​​​Our Owners are supporting a portfolio of U.S. carbon projects that protect forests, capture and destroy landfill gas, and scale up renewable energy distribution. In line with our brand and reputation, all our chosen projects adhere to the leading global verification standards.

CAPRICORN RIDGE WIND FARM IN TEXAS
This initiative leverages the abundance of open land for wind power generation. It powers 220,000+ homes, provides employment, supports agricultural livelihoods, and reduces pollutants and carbon emissions.

CHARLOTTE COUNTY WASTE MANAGEMENT IN FLORIDA
This municipal solid waste management facility has implemented a landfill gas-to-energy project that channels and converts methane gas released from on-site waste. Once the gas is collected and processed it is then used as fuel by electric generators to produce electric power.

HENRICO COUNTY LANDFILL IN VIRGINIA
This landfill gas recovery and utilization project is reducing emissions through innovative solutions to repurpose and destroy landfill gas emissions by producing electricity for both on-site power and supplying into the grid.

FOREST PROTECTION IN ALASKA
Following the framework of Improved Forest Management, over 8,000 acres formerly used for timber production are now part of a conservation effort to protect native Sitka spruce trees and numerous animal species, including elk, brown bears, and bald eagles.

These specific projects were selected by region to ensure a local impact to our Owners and their communities. In only a few years, our Owners participation has led to incredible results.
All statistics are accurate as of March 2020.
