HOW DOES CARBON OFFSETTING WORK?
During each flight, greenhouse gas emissions are released into the atmosphere. Carbon offsetting works by supporting projects to reduce emissions by the same amount as that emitted by the flight. Our offset program includes two world-leading clean cooking projects in Kenya and Ghana. These clean cooking initiatives not only cut carbon emissions, helping to tackle climate change, they also make a real difference to the quality of people’s lives by reducing fuel bills and exposure to toxic fumes. By cutting fuel requirements the projects also reduce deforestation, protecting precious habitat.
Lifestraw Water Filters…
Providing Safe Water in Kenya.
The award-winning LifeStraw Carbon for Water project provides simple, gravity fed water filters for families in Kenya. It not only provides safe drinking water to 4 million people; it cuts carbon emissions by removing the need to boil water in order to make it safe to drink.
Improving Lives in Ghana.
This project is creating a market for locally produced, efficient cooking stoves which cut emissions, reduce exposure to toxic fumes and decrease fuel bills.
The project provides skilled employment for 350 manufacturers and extra income for over 500 retailers. As well as cutting more than 2 million tonnes of CO2, the Gyapa stoves project has so far saved more than 4 million people over $80 million on their fuel bills.
365 Aviation is proud to work with Climate and Development experts ClimateCare to support this project and others in the Climate+Care Portfolio.
Lucy Air Ambulance for Children (Lucy AAC) is a national charity that flies children between hospitals in the UK. This is a vital service that works with the NHS to support the transport of premature babies and critically ill children. We cannot adequately express our admiration for the team at Lucy
AAC, they are simply a wonderful group of people and we are proud to support them in their efforts.
Lucy AAC flies children as young as preterm newborns to receive specialist care, for specialist surgery, diagnostic tests and also to be taken closer to home, including for end of life care. For most children, their Lucy AAC transfer is life changing. Please read their incredible stories here:
They are the only charity in the UK that can transfer children long distances or in very poor weather as they use fixed-wing aircraft as opposed to helicopters, and from point of referral they can fly a child within 24 hours. The flights are fully staffed by a Neonatal/Pediatric Doctor and Specialist Transport Nurse who, along with the pilots, ensure the children are flown safely to their destinations. The NHS are unable to fund air transfers so Lucy AAC relies solely on personal and corporate donations to fund their flights. They currently have the capacity to increase these transfers by an additional 50% but do not have the funding. We hope that you will join us in helping Lucy AAC achieve their goal to help every child that needs an air transfer, regardless of distance or cost.
