GMSTEK, the software specialist behind X-1FBO, the FBO management and payment processing system, is making it easy to go green with the launch of its new X-1 Carbon Offset Tool, in time for World Earth Day. The tool was developed to enable FBOs to have the ability to offer operators a simple, yet speedy method of offsetting CO2 emissions as soon as they check out from the FBO.
Working with TerraPass, its carbon offsetting partner, X-1FBO now offers a fast, inexpensive method for operators to enhance their environmental credentials.
Inside of X-1FBO the Green E-Mission plug-in, the X-1 Carbon Offset Tool, provides FBOs with the ability to quickly calculate and invoice the amount of carbon offsets needed for each mission. The X-1FBO Green E-Mission plug-in, which includes a flight leg fuel burn calculator, will be provided for free to every FBO using the X-1FBO software.
“At a time when the aviation industry is seeking to play its part in creating a better environment for the future, we felt a responsibility to create the Green E-Mission initiative to help our FBO customers. This is why we now offer the Carbon Offset feature for free in their existing X-1FBO system,” says Jim Wiley, co-founder and CEO of X-1FBO.
