Offset your carbon

 

You can offset the carbon for your flight using the calculator from our partners ClimateCare. We've added the code VirginOffset to give you a discount (if it doesn't show just add it yourself). 👉

 

 

There are two ways you can use this calculator

 

💚 Quick and simple: Using the Start tab, enter the contribution you’d like to make (maybe £5, £10 or £20) or the tonnes you’d like to offset. This won’t match the precise carbon footprint of your flight, but you will be supporting some great projects that help to tackle climate change around the world.

 

💚 Measure your flight footprint and offset your flight: Go to the flights tab, input your flight details and offset your measured footprint. This will ensure that the offsets you buy will cover your flight carbon footprint fully.

CO₂

Put simply, offsetting means buying carbon credits equivalent to your carbon impact. This means you compensate for every tonne of CO2 you emit by ensuring there is one tonne less in the atmosphere.

People

Along with achieving verified carbon reductions, ClimateCare projects tackle poverty, promote energy independence and improve people’s health and wellbeing.

Global

Whether it’s protecting rainforests in Sierra Leone, providing efficient cookstoves in Kenya or powering communities with renewable energy in China – all these projects generate positive outcomes, backed up with verified carbon credits.

What else can you do to help?

Apart from offsetting your carbon footprint there are some other things you can do to help

 

Pack lighter

If all our passengers reduced the weight of their bag by 1kg we could save around 4,000 tonnes of CO2 each year.

 

Bring reusable water bottles

Fill up your reusable water bottle at the airport to save plastic waste, and have it refilled onboard.

 

Use public transport 

Think about travel options to and from the airport. Most airports are well connected to public transport links.
