Go on a Flight Diet
- If you have to fly, think of it as a rare treat. Choose to fly with an airline that uses the newest aircraft possible for your route. These typically tend to be more efficient than older models and so produce less emissions. The Airline Index shows which airlines produce the least CO2 emissions for certain routes.
- Book an economy ticket (less space wasted), reduce luggage weight and choose direct flights without stopovers.
- And consider offsetting your emissions – look out for the UN’s Gold Standard certification for offset schemes.
