Over the past year, SAS has been CO2 offsetting all Youth Tickets, amounting to a total of almost 1.5 million tickets, an increase of five percent. The initiative is part of SAS’ ambition to promote more sustainable travel.
Based on flight statistics and data, a corresponding quantity of CO2 emissions is compensated using emissions-reducing mechanisms linked to investments in other sectors. SAS exclusively purchases CO2 compensation from energy projects linked to renewable energy conversions in the form of wind power.
In order to reduce SAS’s emissions, a number of initiatives are under way within the framework of SAS’s environmental management system, which is certified under ISO14001.
