Danbury, CT – April 13, 2021 – Global Jet Capital, a global leader in financial solutions for business aircraft, announced today the introduction of its new CleanFlight Carbon Offset Program. In partnership with Carbonfund.org Foundation, a U.S. based 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, this new program will provide Global Jet Capital clients with preferred pricing and a simplified process when they choose to offset the greenhouse gas emissions related to their business aircraft through the purchase of verified carbon offsets.
New Sustainability Program for Business Aviation
Vivek Kaushal, President and Chief Operating Officer of Global Jet Capital, stated, “We created this program to help raise visibility around the impacts of climate change and provide our clients with a vetted option to offset the impact of their aircraft operations on the environment. The sustainability program is completely voluntary and provides our clients the flexibility to acquire a level of carbon credits consistent with their operations. Though this is not intended to satisfy government regulations regarding environmental mitigation, our partnership with Carbonfund.org provides our clients the assurance of acquiring verified carbon offsets from a trusted and globally recognized partner.”
Flexible Carbon Credits Leading to Certification for Business Jet Operators and Owners
The CleanFlight Carbon Offset Program can be implemented when a client commences an operating lease, finance lease or loan with Global Jet Capital. The Carbonfund.org team will support Global Jet Capital in estimating the carbon footprint size associated with the client’s anticipated use of its specific business aircraft. This will be based on the fuel burn associated with the make and model of the aircraft, anticipated annual operations, and desired years of coverage. Upon acquisition of the carbon offsets, Carbonfund.org will provide appropriate certifications for the client’s records.
A Voluntary and Verified International Sustainability Standard
All voluntary carbon offset projects that Carbonfund.org supports are third-party validated and verified to one or more of the internationally recognized standards by organizations including The Gold Standard, Verified Carbon Standard, and American Carbon Registry. Business jet operators, owners, and entities that finance via Global Jet Capital will be automatically eligible for the carbon offsetting / sustainability certification.
Third-party validation/verification companies include various global environmental and engineering consultancies such as Bureau Veritas Certification Holding SAS, Environmental Services, EPIC Sustainability Services Private Limited, First Environment, LGAI Technological Center S.A., RINA Services S.p.A., Ruby Canyon Engineering, SCS Global Services and Environmental Services, and TÜV NORD CERT GmbH.
All validation, verification and monitoring reports for all registered voluntary carbon offset projects are publicly available on the registries maintained by each of the international standards. Carbonfund.org’s project management team reviews these documents for compliance prior to selecting projects to be supported.
