Thanks to planes and the gift of travel, our world has become much smaller. This in turn means our global footprint has become much bigger. Therefore, companies need to take responsibility in protecting our planet. Here at AirPlus, we offer a carbon-neutral payment solution with green reporting, which allow companies to measure their carbon emissions, as well as to give something back to the countries and communities in need.
In 2012, we developed an entirely carbon-neutral Company Account product, setting a benchmark for environmental protection within the financial services industry. The Green Company Account has been certified by the climate protection organization myclimate, with unavoidable CO2 emissions generated through the use of it being compensated by AirPlus through a climate protection project. In cooperation with the non-profit organization myclimate, AirPlus supports sustainable reforestation in Nicaragua.
AirPlus offers Green Reports which provide a clear and detailed emissions balance sheet, enabling companies to easily allocate costs to the respective projects, cost centers or departments. Green Reports provide an important basis for a company’s corporate sustainability report and the chance to make a contribution to atmosfair, a non-profit, climate protection organization which is approved by the German Federal Environmental Agency. The calculation methods deliver quality results and serve as a reliable basis for your commitment to the environment.
At ITB 2015, the international tourism fair in Berlin, the AirPlus Green Company Account received myclimate Award, honoring AirPlus’ pioneering role in the field of innovative and sustainable financial products for the travel industry.
The commitment to social activities at AirPlus is alive and strong, with many AirPlus offices around the world actively involved in supporting their favourite charities. These ranges from hands-on work such as organizing wishes for terminally ill children, helping redecorate a drop-in centre for homeless people, or with various fundraisers to raise money for an orphanage in India.
AirPlus also has a long tradition of cultural sponsorship and has been a long time partner of the Rheingau Music Festival, dedicated to helping young and emerging artists.
AirPlus management and employees are both in agreement. Only when the environment, which includes both man and nature, achieves a healthy balance can the economic system function sustainably. In this sense, AirPlus will continue to push forward with social and environmental commitment, making it a paragon, and not just an engine for change.
