Carbon Neutral Certification Achieved
Aviation accounts for around 2.5% of carbon emissions around the world. The historic aircraft that we operate were built many decades ago, to the standards of the time, so our opportunities to reduce their carbon emissions are very limited. The Historic Army Aircraft Flight has therefore been investigating the options to mitigate the carbon produced by our flying activities. The Flight has chosen to work with Carbon Neutral Britain to offset the carbon being produced, and we have recently received our certification.
“We are proud to announce that we have partnered with Carbon Neutral Britain to offset our carbon footprint. Our partnership will achieve 5 tonnes of carbon offset and plant 30 trees each month in sustainable projects around the world, including within Great Britain. All of the offsetting projects use carbon credits purchased through United Nations Certified Emission Reductions programmes, industry recognised credits audited and verified by the UN, ratified in the Kyoto Protocol.” Julian Hickman, COO of the Historic Army Aircraft Flight.
