Flying is not environmentally friendly and climate-damaging, especially when you fly as much as we do. To reduce our impact we compensate the emissions (CO2, ozone, nitrius gases, water pavour, soot, sulphates, other particles) of our flights starting in 2020. Aviation is our passion, yet, we don't want to hide away from the negative sides it has.
Compensating for flights is clearly no ideal solution. However, it can help to reduce and bridge the impact until climate-neutral flying is possible.
We decided to use the platform "atmosfair" as they also include the aircraft type, the booking class and not only CO2 but also other gases and particles in the calculation of the emissions. The money is invested in sustainable projects which conform to the UN CMD Gold Standards (atmosfair 2020).
