Ryanair encourages customers to go green with carbon offset calculator

Ryanair has launched a carbon calculator, which is a new digital tool allowing consumers to see what their individual carbon footprint s and can offset their emissions on their Ryanair flight.

The new tool will calculate the carbon emissions per passenger on every Ryanair route and allows customers to pay the full carbon cost of their flight contributing to environmental initiatives.

 It greatly expands Ryanair's carbon offset programme which currently allows customers to contribute €2 towards carbon offset projects.

These contributions support several environmental initiatives, including Renature Monchique - a reforestation project in the Algarve; the distribution of energy-efficient cookstoves in Uganda by First Climate and the Balikesir's Wind Power Plant Project in Turkey.

Since it rolled out the voluntary carbon offset scheme, Ryanair says customers have contributed over €3.5 million to environmental projects.

"The expansion of our Carbon Offset Scheme to enable our customers to fully offset the CO2 of their Ryanair flight will greatly enhance the capabilities of each of our environmental partners," said Thomas Fowler, Ryanair's Director of Sustainability.

Ryanair is committed to becoming net carbon neutral by 2050.
