Air Canada and United Airlines take great pride in connecting North America and the world. In accepting that mission, the airline partners also recognize that they must do their part to minimize their environmental footprint. Both airlines are committed to be carbon neutral by 2050.
LEAVE LESS, DO MORE is Air Canada’s strategy to protect the environment and the communities it serves. Air Canada minimizes its environmental impact throughout its operations by leaving less carbon in the atmosphere, less waste in the land and water, and producing less noise in the communities. To do more, the airline increases collaboration with its industry partners, communities, employees and customers.
United is looking beyond using carbon offsets when it comes to sustainability. United aims to tackle emissions at their source by continuing and accelerating development in sustainable fuel made from renewable resources and waste byproducts, and investment in Direct Air Capture technology – which can capture, remove and store 1 million metric tons of CO2.
United recently announced the launch of the first-of-its-kind Eco-Skies Alliance℠ program. Working with United, more than a dozen leading global corporations will collectively contribute towards the purchase of approximately 3.4 million gallons of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) this year.
