World Fuel Services (World Fuel) announces that World Fuel Rewards now offers carbon offsets as a rewards option.
When members redeem World Fuel Rewards for carbon offsets,they can enter their fuel volume or points to calculate the amount of carbon emissions in tons of CO2 equivalents.
World Kinect Energy Services (World Kinect),the sustainability division of World Fuel Services, analyzes members’ energy use and retires carbon offsets to compensate for a portion of their scope 1 and scope 2 carbon emissions.
A carbon offset represents one ton of greenhouse gas emissions that has been avoided or reduced in the atmosphere.
Choosing carbon offsets allows members to compensate for a portion of their operation’s residual carbon footprint.
World Kinect sources carbon offsets from projects worldwide that have been independently verified and certified by internationally accepted standards.
Members will receive a carbon offset certificate that allows them to report that they have offset some of the carbon emissions from their activities.
Malcolm Hawkins, senior vice president of business aviation global sales, World Fuel Services, said: “We understand that sustainability can feel complex and unattainable, and we want to make it easier for World Fuel Rewards members to achieve their sustainability goals.
“Including carbon offsets as a rewards redemption option encourages members to take this simple and significant first step in their sustainability journey.”
