Sustainability


We were proud to be the first among the major airlines in the world to fully offset the carbon emissions from the fuel used for all our flights, and continue to be the only major European airline to do so. We do this by spending millions of pounds each year supporting projects that either avoid the creation of new carbon emissions elsewhere in the world, or directly remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. The avoided or sequestered carbon emissions correspond to easyJet’s operational carbon footprint’.


Offsetting easyJet’s carbon emissions is achieved via forestry and renewable energy projects that are certified to the highest standards in this field. We are aware that offsetting is not a long-term solution, but we believe it currently represents the best way to address the impact of carbon emitted from flying. In parallel we will undertake to reduce our carbon emission intensity, while supporting the development in the medium to long term of zero emission propulsion in aviation. Since 2000 we have reduced our carbon emissions per passenger kilometre by one third.
