JSSI, AvFuel Partner On Carbon Credit Match

 - October 13, 2021, 10:14 AM

Jet Support Services (JSSI, Booth 1333) customers can get their carbon credits matched this month under a deal with Avfuel. The companies will match carbon credits purchased by JSSI’s hourly cost maintenance (HCM) clients who register for this carbon credit matching program this week at NBAA-BACE.

JSSI clients who register can offset their aircraft’s emissions when reporting October flight activity within the MyJSSI client portal; JSSI and Avfuel will match October’s carbon credit purchases by registered customers to further offset up to 10 additional flight hours per aircraft. Each carbon credit offsets one tonne of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions through direct investment in select environmental projects. 

Announced in August, JSSI’s collaboration with Avfuel enables clients to evaluate and reduce their carbon footprint by estimating emissions through an online CO2 calculator and offset these emissions by purchasing carbon credits when reporting monthly flight hours within the MyJSSI client portal. Operators can also opt to purchase sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) through Avfuel at select locations.

“JSSI’s HCM clients represent approximately 10 percent of the world’s business aviation fleet, so by further encouraging adoption of sustainability initiatives, we can take a notable step toward the industry’s goal of carbon neutrality,” said JSSI chairman and CEO Neil Book. 

“Avfuel is proud to partner with JSSI as it actively supports clients with carbon emissions reductions,” said Avfuel president and CEO Craig Sincock. “We hope through Avfuel’s Carbon Offset Program and this matching opportunity, operators will see the tangible difference they can make to reach carbon-neutrality targets and reduce their impact on the environment.”
