Jet2’s decarbonisation plans en route to net zero
Jet2 ’s sustainability strategy sets out its decarbonisation route to net zero by 2050. One of the headline commitments for 2022 is the launch of Jet2.com’s carbon offsetting scheme, one of the largest such schemes of any airline globally. From 2022, the company will offset every tonne of its carbon emissions not already covered by their contribution to existing schemes (CORSIA and UK and EU Emissions Trading Schemes).
Highlights from the strategy include:
Since 2011, Jet2.com has reduced its CO2 per passenger per km by more than 19%, a figure which stands to improve further after the company agreed to purchase up to 60 new and more efficient Airbus A321 NEO aircraft.
Jet2.com has been ranked as the 11th most environmentally efficient airline globally, according to the most recent atmosfair Airline Index (2018), which compares and ranks the 200 largest airlines in the world.
