We make travel more sustainable.
Personal actions can reduce the environmental impact of travel. By providing a simple platform for mileage-based giving, Jet-Set Offset is sparking a broader movement towards green travel and sustainable aviation. We envision a day when no one travels without considering the environmental impact. A day when no one flies without simultaneously supporting efforts to protect and preserve our planet. A day when all planes are running on biofuels or clean energy.
Sustainability means meeting the needs of the present, without compromising the needs of future generations. Air travel is a fundamental part of our modern world, yet it is also a major threat to the future of our planet and one of the largest contributors of carbon emissions around the world. We care about fighting climate change and preserving our natural environment for generations to come.
Climate change is a complex problem. Finding the perfect solution can often be controversial. In the urgent fight against climate change we can’t let perfection be the enemy of the good. We believe optimism and positivity can spark progress, and we believe we can make a difference.
Changing how we fly is a great place to start.
Jet-Set Offset does not intend to greenwash air travel. Reducing or avoiding air travel is one of the most effective steps we can take as individuals to combat climate change. But, when we must fly, we can be responsible. We promise transparency in how we select partnering environmental organizations and how donations are spent.
Travel is an adventure worth seeking. If we didn’t love to travel, we wouldn’t have created Jet-Set Offset. We believe we should be able to move around, without damaging the wonderful destinations we are traveling to.
Let’s embrace the adventure together and feel better about flying.
“I love to fly, but I also care deeply about the environment. I built Jet-Set Offset so that we can fight climate change, not just cause it, every time we take off. Jet-Set Offset was developed as an alternative approach to traditional carbon offsetting so that travelers can choose to support nonprofit organizations across the country working towards local climate solutions, and ‘give where they live.’ Through Jet-Set Offset, travelers can choose to give to support a range of important projects and organizations. Jet-Set Offset is not just another carbon marketplace.”
