Unfortunately the aviation industry is excluded from the Paris Climate Agreement. Currently aviation account for two percent of the global CO2 emissions.
The amount of air travel passengers is expected to double in the next twenty year. Air travel technologies aren't keeping up with that growth. Therefore, it's expected that emissions in aviation will increase.
Also your flight contributes to greenhouse gas emissions. But there's a way to compensate for these emissions, namely by carbon offsetting.
While we also hope that electric planes and biofuel technologies will develop soon, it's expected that this will take a few years to decades. To reach climate goals, we should act now. And you can act now by reducing your emissions and offsetting the rest via FlyGRN!
