Environmental Engagement

At Loganair, we are passionate about the future of the world we live in and are involved in a wide range of initiatives to manage and mitigate the environmental impact of flying.

Committed to a carbon neutral future

Our GreenSkies environmental programme, which launched in July 2021, forms part of our commitment to becoming fully carbon neutral by 2040.

The programme includes the introduction of a mandatory £1 carbon offsetting charge levied on all flights. Your contribution is invested in accredited offsetting schemes certified to the highest international standards as part of our net zero plan.

GreenSkies projects

For the first phase of GreenSkies, we purchased credits from the Albano Machado and Rio dos Índios projects. Based in State of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil both schemes are hydro plants which displace fossil fuel energy production in the national grid. The project is certified by the UN under the Clean Development Mechanism.

We’ve also purchased credits from the Tambopata-Bahuaja biodiversity reserve in Peru, a scheme which is locally run and intended to protect and preserve the rain forest and its biodiversity. The scheme is certified to the VCS standard and has restored over 4,000 hectares and planted over one million trees, protected far more and sustained hundreds of local agriculture jobs.

As a Scotland-based airline though, we’re also keen to ensure that we’re investing locally too. That’s why we’re launching the GreenSkies Fund – an initiative that will support renewable projects closer to home.
