Fly environmentally aware with fAIRreisen
With an average of 10 tonnes of Carbon dioxide (CO2) produced yearly per person in Germany we are heating up the world. In the future however, the world’s climate will only be able to tolerate 2-3 tonnes per person. Air travel is currently and will continue to be the main burden on the environ-ment. On a worldwide scale the growth of air travel is estimated at 5% per year. (Source: VCD) Condensation, Carbon dioxide and Nitrogen, which are produced by the combustion of kerosene at the height of 10 km are three times more detrimental for the environment than those produced on the earth’s surface.
On the other hand, flying is a necessity in our culture and is sometimes unavoidable.
Do you worry about the consequences of your air travel? Would you like to be more responsible for your environment? Then fAIRreisen can help. With us you can compensate for your CO2 debt .
This works in the following way:
You pay a voluntary climate protection supplement
We invest this in the production of CO2 free energy. The solar panels on our school roof therefore saves CO2 which you have produced through your flight.
Example: On a return flight to London 407 kg of CO2 are produced. The voluntary climate contribution is 10 €.
Since the existing CO2 savings of our 6,9 kWp – plant are quickly consumed, so the BBS therefore plans to increase this to 60 kWp for the beginning of 2008. The bbs-enAIRgy Ltd, created specifically for this, are responsible for the financing and running of this project. The environmentally friendly electricity production of this increased solar panel will save around 800.000 kg CO2 over the next 20 years. This saving of CO2 compensates for your flight.
Incidentally: Only 5% of people on the earth have ever flown in their lives.
Nonetheless: Flying should not be our first choice of transport. We have a great tip for you: Travel comfortably with the Deutschen Bahn.
Behave responsibly towards the Climate – with fAIRreisen
fAIRreisen works in the following way:
We offer you two partnership models.
CO2 – Partnership I:You buy an agreed amount of CO2 to compensate for your air travel.
e.g. 5000 kg CO2 -saving costs from 100 € + USt.
e.g.monthly 1000 kg CO2– saving costs from 20 € + USt.
CO2 – Partnership II:
You pay the calculated CO2 comsumption each time you fly.
it works in the following way:
We ask you each year about any air travel that you would like to compensate for. With the help of an atmosphere- emission calculator, we calculate the necessary CO2 saving. (www.atmosfair.de)
In both cases you receive a bill from us which you can then claim as work expenses. The bill is under the name bbs-enAIRgie GmbH. In addition you receive a certificate.
