Silver Flight operates the greenest commercial aircraft in Europe. Thanks to a very low fuel consumption, the Pilatus PC-12 has a CO2 emission rate far lower than any other business aircraft. A Pilatus PC-12 releases 3,2x less CO2 than a Light Jet and 7x less than a Long Range Jet.
Silver Flight does more for the environment and has a CO2 offsetting program. The purpose of the program is to compensate each metric ton of CO2 released in the atmosphere by a concrete action, which captures the equivalent amount of CO2 from the air.
What is carbon offsetting?
Carbon offsets or carbon credits are financial contributions to projects that help reduce CO2 emissions in various countries and industries, or encourage new sustainable energy projects in an effort to balance out the damage business and human activities have on the planet.
Carbon compensation (or offsetting) is an internationally recognised way to take responsibility for unavoidable carbon emissions. It means compensating for the greenhouse gas emissions of an individual or an organisation (their carbon footprint) by preventing the same amount of emissions from entering the atmosphere elsewhere on Earth. As climate change is a global problem it does not matter where exactly an emission reduction occurs. A carbon credit is a certificate that corresponds to the reduction or avoidance of one ton of CO2 equivalent.
Flying on a Silver Flight PC-12, means zero net CO2 released in the atmosphere.
Each Silver Flight flight will offset the carbon consumption based on their real carbon emissions. Every customer will receive within one week of their flight an exact data sheet with of their flight, based on the actual released CO2 emession, and their own chosen method on carbon offset re-calculation.
At Silver Flight you have your own choise on how to compensate, but all flights will be compensated. Silver Flight flights are 100% Carbon Neutral!
