Air transport creates welfare, vital opportunities and jobs worldwide. Unfortunately, it also generates CO2 emissions. This is still inevitable. But we can try to fly using cleaner technology. At AF-KL-MP Cargo, we've already done a lot to reduce our environmental impact and will continue to do so in the future.
To make a real difference, we have to take on this challenge together. We've made it easy for you to contribute, with our new CO2 information and compensation service: CO2mpensation. This unique service gives you insight into the CO2 emissions of your shipments and the opportunity to compensate. Your contribution will be invested completely in Gold Standard wind, water or solar energy projects. These projects generate the same amount of energy as that used for your shipment, but this time without any CO2 emissions – and at the lowest possible cost. This way, we can keep both our business and our planet healthy.
As one of the leading companies in the air cargo business, Air France Cargo-KLM-Martinair Cargo takes social responsibility very seriously. It is our ambition to set an example in the global airline industry. This ambition reflects the scale of our company and our market position.
