Finnair introduces CO2 offsetting and biofuel service for customers

January 19, 2019 |

In Finland, Finnair introduced a service where customers can offset the CO2 emissions of their flights by supporting a CO2 emission reduction project or reduce emissions by buying biofuel. Finnair’s biofuel partner is SkyNRG, and the biofuel is produced from used cooking oil in California.

Customers can choose to support biofuel flights. The use of biofuel reduces CO2 emissions by 60-80 percent depending on the raw material. Finnair customers can buy biofuel for 10, 20 or 65 euros, to reduce the emissions of a return flight in Finland, return flight within Europe or return intercontinental flight.

Finnair customers can also choose to support a CO2 emission reduction project, which enables the use of more efficient cookstoves in Mozambique. Efficient cookstoves reduce charcoal consumption and deforestation.

“We want to offer the best solutions for responsible air travelers,” says Topi Manner, Finnair CEO. “Aviation has several positive economic and social impacts, and it is important that we work hard to build a more responsible air travel. Many important products we use in our daily life are transported by air cargo, air connections enable international trade and maintain relations, and travel industry is a key source of income and employment for many countries.”
