Today, GE Honda Aero Engines (GHAE) announces 4AIR, LLC as its environmental offset provider for its customers.
This relationship with 4AIR gives HF120 customers access to comprehensive sustainability programs that offset their environmental impact from flight emissions.
“Sustainability solutions remain at the forefront of our product offerings and as demonstrated by our recent 100% Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) testing with the HF120 engine,” said Melvyn Heard, president of GE Honda Aero Engines.
“As part of our sustainability strategy, we are committed to working for and with our customers to help them achieve their sustainability goals.”
With 4AIR, GHAE can provide competitive levels of carbon offset commitments for customers to compensate for today’s emissions.
As private aviation continues to grow, environmental offset commitments are going to be necessary to meet industry and global climate goals.
GHAE customers are now able to leverage important carbon offset programs to make meaningful commitments, such as in forestry and renewable energy, to reduce emissions equivalent to those emitted from flying.
The 4AIR offering includes:
- Carbon Neutral which refers to carbon offsets (or carbon “credits”) that balance the emissions of one activity with the verified emissions reductions from a carbon offset project. These reductions reduce one’s net footprint to zero or “carbon neutral” but are not direct reductions of one’s footprint.
- Emissions Neutral which refers to the combination of a carbon neutral program with the use of verified carbon offsets to offset the carbon equivalent footprint of non-CO2 emissions. These conversions are done using emissions indexes.
- Beyond Neutral which refers to the combination of an emissions neutral program with the use of sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) to achieve emissions reductions in aviation.
- Climate Champion which refers to the combination of a beyond neutral program in addition to making a pledge to the Aviation Climate Fund which is designed to support research that supports sustainable aviation technologies and improved operations.
