JetBlue Airways- For Planet and People CarbonFree Travel Category Award
Wednesday, 7 March 2012
Today’s blog highlights our Travel Category winner, JetBlue Airways. Carbonfund.org congratulates and thanks them for their commitment to sustainable practices and to the support of important external carbon reductions.
JetBlue views sustainability as synonymous with social responsibility and is committed to reducing the environmental impact of both their crew and their customers. Through the Jetting to Green initiatives, they are allowing a portal for customers to mitigate the climate impact of their travel through customized calculators on Carbonfund.org’s site. However, JetBlue is leading by example. For the past two years, JetBlue has offset 100% their own business travel, supporting carbon mitigation projects equivalent to the emissions of their crewmembers’ travels. This is all in addition to their annual Spring campaign, One Thing That’s Green, that encourages crewmembers and customers, in all of the 70+ cities that JetBlue serves, to do one thing for the environment. This April JetBlue will launch the 5th annual One Thing That’s Green campaign.
JetBlue has been able to partner with Carbonfund.org through the leadership of the Corporate Responsibility Department, and in particular, Icema Gibbs.
