Carbonfund.org Partner Virgin America Named Official Airline of Governors’ Global Climate Summit
Friday, 2 October 2009
Virgin America is the Official Domestic Airline of the Governors’ Second Annual Climate Summit in Los Angeles from Sept. 30-Oct. 2. Also, Virgin America released its first annual Climate Report today describing their unique sustainability efforts and emissions data for 2008. When Virgin America launched in 2007 they took great care to incorporate sustainability into every aspect of their business. They not only use more efficient aircraft, regulating cruising speed to reduce fuel burn, and encourage customers to offset the impact of their flight through Carbonfund.org, they even use organic hand soap in the airplane bathrooms! Earlier this year, Virgin America became the first U.S. airline to join The Climate Registry and commit to reporting emissions according to The Climate Registry’s standards. We are proud that our partner is an innovator and a leader in sustainability efforts for the airline industry. Flying somewhere? Check out this page where you can offset your trip!
