airberlin to donate €3 for every saved tonne of CO2
airberlin announced that in collaboration with the charitable climate organisation, atmosfair GmbH, the carrier will donate three euros for every additional tonne of CO2 saved during flight operations. The money will be used to educate school children during so-called "climate expeditions".
Oliver Iffert, Chief Operations Office at airberlin: "This project builds upon our long-standing, successful commitment to eco-efficient flight operations. Every member of our staff in the air and on the ground can make a contribution as every tonne of fuel counts. Because the more fuel we save, the higher our support for this good cause, the lower the impact on the environment and the lower our fuel costs."
The aim of the educational climate expeditions is to convey global climate knowledge to the participating children in an easily understandable way, reflect upon the consequences of their own daily environmental actions and develop climate-neutral solutions.
