United Airlines is looking beyond using carbon offsets when it comes to sustainability. To achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, United Airlines aims to tackle emissions at their source by continuing and accelerating development and investment in:
Sustainable fuel is made from renewable resources and waste byproducts — and has up to 80% fewer carbon emissions than conventional jet fuel, making it the fastest and most effective way United Airlines is reducing its emissions across its fleet.
Direct Air Capture
Carbon capture and sequestration has been widely viewed by scientists as a necessary step to limit climate change and one of the most scalable options is Direct Air Capture technology – which can capture, remove and store 1 million metric tons of CO2.
United Airlines also recently completed an agreement to work with air mobility company Archer on emerging technologies that decarbonize air travel.
United Airlines continues making tangible commitments to help reduce carbon emission footprint, engaging with its customers on a range of sustainability initiatives to drive change.
