Chapman Freeborn has organised complementary participation for all of its jet membership programme clients in 4Air. This means all carbon emissions from the flights of its jet membership clients will automatically be offset as part of the 4Air programme, at no extra cost to those clients. Previously, they had the choice of opting into the service on a flight-by-flight basis, for an additional charge.

“We are thrilled to advance our commitment to high quality carbon reduction efforts with 4Air, and to not only invite our US clients to be part of that commitment, but make it both effortless and rewarding for them to do so,” says president Americas David McCown. “The reduction of carbon emissions is the hottest topic in the private aviation industry and we don't expect it to cool down any time soon. We’re glad to have an effective programme in place to address what contributions Chapman Freeborn can make at this pivotal time.”

As per the emissions offsetting programme, a monthly report of each jet membership client’s flight activity will be provided to 4Air by Chapman Freeborn for a calculation of emissions. In turn, jet membership clients will receive an annual emissions report from 4Air detailing the emission certificates that have been purchased and retired on their behalf and will allow them to retain those results.

Additional offset solutions offered by 4Air include projects such as forestry conservation; renewable energy technology and technology efficiencies; as well as access to sustainable aviation fuel via a book-and-claim programme and contributions to an aviation innovation research fund.

4Air COO Nancy Bsales adds: “We’re excited to partner with Chapman Freeborn to provide its jet membership clients with sustainability solutions that help address their environmental commitments. 4Air’s mission is to offer comprehensive sustainability solutions that effectively mitigate the environmental impact of operating aircraft. The framework, which is the first of its kind in the industry, provides a simplified and verifiable approach that achieves meaningful reductions and offsets to operators’ emissions footprints.”
