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 = $42.44/hour
$42.44/hour x 50 hours = $2,122.00 total invoice for yearly carbon offset

Based on carbon fuel burn ($10.25/unit in 2021), the following chart shows our carbon offset hourly rates by aircraft:

PROJECTS IN THE BLUE SKIES PROGRAM

​​​​​Our Owners are supporting a portfolio of carbon projects around the world 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.

LAND RESTORATION IN URUGUAY
The main objectives of this forestry project spanning 49,500 acres are sustainable wood production, land restoration, and carbon sequestration through afforestation. In addition, the project team hosts education sessions for local schools about wildlife and sustainability. The project, certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), balances timber production and sales with habitat creation.

ELECTRIC RAILWAY IN INDIA
By installing over 620 miles of state-of-the-art electric rail systems with new trains, this project will reduce transport emissions. Additionally, the project encourages a collaborative effort to increase funding for developing countries to implement environmentally sound technologies.

FOAM BLOWING AGENT REPLACEMENT IN USA
This project supports the transition to greener practices among small- and medium-sized manufacturers and construction contractors. As a new type of carbon offset, the project reduces emissions by creating a voluntary transition for the manufacturing industry to low-global warming potential (GWP) foam propellants.

EFFICIENT GYAPA COOKSTOVES IN GHANA
This project introduces families in Ghana to an efficient cookstove, the Gyapa, that cooks food quicker, requires nearly 50% less fuel, and produces less smoke. The stove reduces the amount of wood used for cooking and saves families as much as $100 annually while protecting Ghana’s tree cover, which has decreased 19% since 2000, according to Global Forest Watch.

MISSISSIPPI VALLEY REFORESTATION
The project aims to reforest one million acres of the Lower Mississippi Alluvial Valley, an area that was once covered by 22 million acres of dense forest—and now less than 20% remains. Landowners who voluntarily enroll in the project commit to planting and protecting trees. This project promotes life on land, life below water, decent work and economic growth, and climate action.

GRASSLANDS CONSERVATION PORTFOLIO IN USA
Grasslands are an important and stable carbon sink and are described as the reverse of rainforests, as 90% of grassland biomass is below ground in the roots of the grass. This project preserving grasslands covers areas in southeast Colorado and northeast Montana and supports rare and endangered birds, mammals, and flora.

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 December 2021.
