Volato gains Level One carbon neutral 4Air rating
Volato has received a Level One Bronze rating from 4Air, affirming its commitment to offsetting the environmental impact of its flight activities. Now all Volato flights are now assessed to be carbon neutral.

Atlanta, Georgia headquartered fractional start up Volato has partnered with the 4Air private aviation sustainability rating programme to verify its efforts on offsetting its carbon emissions. As a result, Volato has received a Level One Bronze rating and all its flights are 100 per cent carbon neutral.

"We understand the airline industry's contribution to carbon emissions, and at Volato we feel it's our responsibility to the community to ensure we're doing our part to reduce them," says CEO Matt Liotta. "Partnering with 4Air has been an integral part of creating more sustainable service offerings, which is a foundational component of Volato's corporate ESG programme, and we're grateful for its help in making all Volato flights carbon neutral."

In order to earn the Level One 4Air Bronze rating, Volato and its customers fund carbon offset projects like forestry and renewable energy that reduce emissions equivalent to the emissions from flying. Offsets are purchased in an amount equal to Volato's footprint and 'retired', or claimed, in a public registry.

Projects are independently verified to industry-leading standards using carbon accounting methods in line with ICAO and the GHG Protocol Corporate Accounting and Reporting Standard. All credits Volato purchases through 4Air are permanent, additional, verifiable, enforceable and real. Volato and 4Air work together to ensure the appropriate volumes of credits are acquired and retired for every gallon of fuel used.

"Volato is providing access to those who would like to make a sensible jump into private aviation," adds 4Air president Kennedy Ricci. "By partnering with us, it ensures this access is sustainable with a simple and forward-looking solution for mitigating the impact of private air travel on climate change."
