Embraer is launching a voluntary carbon offset program for its Embraer Executive Care (EEC) customers later this year, according to director of environmental strategies and technologies Graciliano Campos. The EEC program allows customers to purchase coverage for maintenance and parts, and an additional option will allow them to purchase carbon credits from an accredited source to offset aircraft emissions. Campos said the company is still researching various offset programs, but he added that it might support local projects, such as planting trees in Brazil. “There are a number of interesting projects right here in Brazil,” he said. “We don’t have to go to the Amazon to reduce emissions.”
