Chapman Freeborn puts carbon solutions in front of US clients
Chapman Freeborn will now be able to give all US clients the choice to opt into 4Air's offset and reduction service. Those that choose to do so will receive a monthly emissions report.

Chapman Freeborn has partnered with 4Air to provide carbon offset and reduction solutions to clients in the US.

4Air assists aviation organisations in calculating their environmental impact from flight data and subsequently offers carbon offset and reduction solutions such as forestry creation and protection projects; renewable energy technology and technology efficiencies; access to SAF via a book and claim scheme; and contributions to an aviation innovation research fund.

Chapman Freeborn will now be able to provide all US clients with the choice to opt into this service, and those that choose to do so will have a monthly report of their flights provided to 4Air for the emissions to be calculated so they can participate accordingly.

Clients will receive an annual emissions report from 4Air that details the emission certificates that have been purchased and retired on their behalf which they can then use as they wish.

David McCown, president Americas, says: "We are truly excited about making these high-quality carbon reduction options available to our customers. This is just the first step in our commitment to meeting our clients' needs in terms of their desire to help the environment while continuing to enjoy the full benefits of flying private."

Lee Fletcher, environmental and sustainability manager, adds: "The aviation sector has a significant challenging task in reducing its impacts by 2050, and the Chapman Freeborn Group see this partnership with 4Air as the first small, but important, step in taking responsibility for reducing both our impacts and those of our clients."

"4Air's programmes are designed as turnkey comprehensive solutions that provide a pathway to addressing and minimising the environmental impacts from all segments in aviation," says COO Nancy Bsales. “By opting in, Chapman Freeborn's clients can travel knowing their flight activity is offset through verified projects that reduce carbon emissions elsewhere, or through the use of sustainable aviation fuel which reduces lifecycle emissions in-sector.”
