To celebrate the holidays, Jet Support Services Inc. (JSSI) is giving the gift of sustainability to its clients this year, purchasing enough carbon credits through partner Avfuel to offset several thousand tonnes of carbon emissions. This donation will offset as much carbon dioxide (CO2) from the atmosphere as approximately 70,000 trees would remove in one year, JSSI said.
“What better way to wish our clients a happy holiday season than to build upon our efforts toward creating a more sustainable future for flying?” posited JSSI chief revenue officer Francisco Zozaya. “Supporting over 20 percent of the world’s business jets through our suite of products and services, we have a clear, impactful opportunity to help realize our industry’s goal of carbon neutrality by 2050.”
JSSI’s carbon credit partnership with Avfuel provides clients with tools and resources to evaluate and reduce their net carbon emissions, including an online CO2 calculator to estimate emissions, the purchase of carbon offsets, and access to sustainable aviation fuel (SAF). The company’s maintenance program clients are also able to offset the carbon emissions associated with their flight hours through Avfuel’s Carbon Offset Program as a part of their JSSI monthly flight activity reports.
Each carbon credit purchased offsets one tonne of CO2 emissions through “direct investment in a selection of projects with a positive impact upon the environment.”
