The CO2 emissions that occur when flying can be compensated for with the help of established offset solutions. At SAS, we automatically carbon offset all SAS tickets purchased by EuroBonus members, youth tickets and our own business trips.
Below you will find a CO2 offset calculator that can be used to calculate CO2 emissions, depending on your flight and the aircraft. The calculator also shows other greenhouse gas emissions.
If you are not yet a Eurobonus member, by registering as a member SAS will automatically pay for the CO2 offsetting of your tickets on SAS flights. However, by clicking on “Buy offset” below all customers can choose to CO2 offset at their own expense via the solution provided by our business partner, Natural Capital Partners (formerly known as The CarbonNeutral Company). Please note that you will be transferred to our partner’s website. By clicking on “Buy offset”, your money will be invested in energy projects which generate a compensation that equivalates to the amount of CO2 emissions calculated by the CO2 offset calculator.
Our CO2 offset portfolio at Natural Capital Partners is built on different energy projects that replace fossil fuel with renewable energy. Right now, we are working on being able to provide the option of upgrading all or part of a trip’s fuel consumption into bio fuel. This option will be launched shortly.
