Since 2008, we have been working with Carbonfund.org, allowing customers to offset part of the carbon footprint of their flights by making a donation to support carbon reduction projects. Customers can purchase carbon offsets for their flight here.
We have offset nearly 2 billion pound of CO2e since partnering with Carbonfund.org in 2008. Through Carbonfund.org, JetBlue has helped fund a total of seven renewable energy and tree-planting projects in and around our BlueCities and internationally.
Reducing what we can, offsetting what we can't
Since partnering with Carbonfund.org in 2008, JetBlue has offset more than 1.5 billion pounds of CO2e. Through Carbonfund.org, JetBlue has helped fund a total of seven renewable energy and carbon-reduction projects in and around our BlueCities. We currently help fund a landfill gas destruction project outside of Salt Lake City, Utah and have supported other similar projects in the past.
JetBlue is rooted in sustainability. In 2013, we participated in a tree planting initiative with Carbonfund.org after a tragic fire burned through Angeles National forest located in Arcadia, CA. In order to restore the area and mitigate emissions from flights, JetBlue sponsored the planting of 25,000 trees by the US Forest Service. The planting was completed in August 2015. The total planting area encompasses 160 acres and will be rejuvenated with big cone Douglas-fir and gray pine. The replanting restores an important watershed area in danger from erosion after the fire and helps maintain pre-fire levels of native biodiversity.
