Carbon Offsets through your travel agent
GreenSeat makes it easy to fly climate neutral. Choose to offset your air travel directly through the Climate Neutral Group or via your business travel agent. In practice, it is possible to travel climate-neutral starting from 1-2% of the ticket price.
Fly 100% Climate Neutral
If your organisation cannot avoid flying, emissions can be offset by investing in one of our climate projects. Offsetting is the only way to completely reduce carbon emissions. By offsetting flights, it also possible to improve the living standards of people living in South Africa by choosing from a range of projects that have measurable socio-economic impacts.
Offset via your travel agent
If you work with a travel agent (it must be a CNG partner*), carbon emissions are calculated per flight when you book, and the costs presented on the ticket invoice. GreenSeat, the Climate Neutral Group calculator, is connected to the travel agent’s booking system so that all carbon emissions from flights are confirmed and compensated for simultaneously.
Offset with CNG
Either quarterly or annually, company flight data is provided to the Climate Neutral Group, which uses GreenSeat, the Climate Neutral Group calculator, to determine the total carbon emissions. These results are communicated, as well as the associated offset costs based on a pre-selected climate project. CNG also prepares an annual impact report that summarizes emissions savings, offset costs and the achievements of a supported project.
