Modern Aviation, an operator, acquirer and developer of FBOs, has announced a partnership with Carbonfund.org Foundation to offer customers an opportunity to offset their carbon emissions as part of their fuel purchases.
From the start of this mont, Modern Aviation’s customers have been able to purchase a carbon-offset for each gallon of fuel they purchase through the company, helping to offset the carbon impact of their flight for a small additional per gallon fee.
The initial projects Modern Aviation have selected are the Russas-Valparaiso Projects in the Amazon which are forest conservation projects otherwise known as a Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation (REDD+).
“Modern Aviation is dedicated to excellent corporate responsibility and this is an effort to help achieve a lower-carbon future,” said Mark Carmen, CEO of Modern Aviation. “To support our customers in mitigating the environmental impact of their flights, Modern is committing to fund 20% of our customers’ contribution to participate in this positive program during the program’s first year.”
Modern Aviation operates three FBOs in the USA, in Wilmington, North Carolina , Englewood in California and Seattle, Washington.
