Air Canada sponsors the wilderness
Since June 2017, Air Canada offers flights from Frankfurt to Vancouver and Air Canada Rouge flies from Berlin to Toronto. Both first flights were climate-neutral. Every passenger received a sponsorship of 16 square meters of untouched wilderness. In this way the airline directly compensated the CO2 emissions of the flight. In this way, Air Canada protects 8,500 square meters of rainforest on the west coast of Canada.
Air Canada, founded in 1937, is the largest airline in Canada, and a founding member of the Star Alliance. The company’s headquarters are in Montreal and it has a fleet of 176 aircraft, with destinations in Asia, Europe and USA. Air Canada Rouge was founded in 2012 as a subsidiary of Air Canada.
It is well-known that traveling by air produces the most CO 2 . As the largest Canadian airline, Air Canada is conscious of keeping its emissions low, and, whenever possible, to compensate them. Through the wilderness sponsorship with Wilderness International, the company can protect the rainforest of Canada as well as the animals and plants which mitigate climate change. We thank you for your support and look forward to continued collaboration!
