CO2 compensation for your flight
Eurowings and myclimate are committed to a cooperative partnership in CO2 offsetting and climate protection. myclimate, the Swiss climate protection foundation, is one of the leading providers of voluntary emission offsetting schemes and promotes measurable climate protection and sustainable development globally, using the highest quality projects. myclimate is a non-profit foundation that meets Eurowings’ quality standards and ensures cost transparency. Eurowings passengers have the option of calculating the individual carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions caused by their flight and offsetting them with a voluntary contribution.
Which projects are funded with my compensation?
CO2 emissions are offset in myclimate’s high-quality certified global climate protection projects which meet the highest standards (Gold Standard, CDM). They contribute not only to reducing greenhouse gases in the project region, but also to achieving the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). This means that the local population sees the benefits from social, economic and ecological improvements (job creation, knowledge and technology transfer, as well as improved quality of life). On top of this, part of the CO2 offsetting money is used for local climate protection projects in Germany.
myclimate guarantees its clients that emission reductions (offsetting donations) that are purchased in the energy sector will be realised in climate protection projects within two years at the latest and will be set aside in a public register after three years at the latest. As a non-profit foundation, myclimate also guarantees that at least 80 percent of the offsetting money will be used for climate protection projects.
