Reduce your carbon footprint when you fly and are enrolled in ESP™

Our new carbon offset service allows you to offset the carbon footprint of your aircraft and is available for all business jet customers enrolled in an Eagle Service™ Plan (ESP™) maintenance program.

How does it work?

You contribute a small fee each time you fly. We will estimate and compensate your aircraft emissions by sourcing high quality carbon offset credits from South Pole, a globally recognized third-party carbon offset provider, and provide you with a certificate of carbon compensation.

Our carbon offset service is transparent, cost-effective and flexible in allowing you to contribute towards greater environmental sustainability each time you fly.

  • Carbon Offset Projects

    Close See details
    To achieve CO2 offset, service charges are collected to purchase carbon offsets from South Pole originating from the following projects1:
    Project Type Location Project Description Project Certification
    Clean Water Access Rwanda, Africa This project restores and repairs existing boreholes to provide clean drinking water to Rwandan communities, removing the need to boil water for purification which creates greenhouse gas emissions as well as deforestation on surrounding forests where firewood is sourced.

    By providing safe water to communities, this project sparks a chain of positive benefits. Children do not have to spend as much time gathering water or firewood, so they can dedicate time to studying. Families resources are freed up and can take part in other income-generating activities, household tasks or taking care of each other. Waterborne and respiratory diseases are reduced thanks to better sanitary conditions.
    Gold Standard
    Renewable Energy India, Asia The clean power produced by the project displaces an equivalent amount of power from the grid, which is fed mainly by fossil fuel-fired power plants. Therefore, it results in a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.

    Mytrah Wind, the project owner, also runs a wide corporate social responsibility scheme that supports the wellbeing of local communities. This includes investment to improve access to education, clean water and a focus on reducing unemployment for young people in the area. It also runs 2 community camps, together with UNICEF, to empower young women by educating them on their rights, creative abilities and skills in healthcare, while a safe water project provides clean water, sanitation education and improved latrine services.
    Verified Carbon Standard
    Forest Conservation Brazil, South America The Envira project in Brazil’s Amazon basin protects 39,300 ha of tropical forest from logging and encroaching cattle ranches. This simultaneously preserves the areas rich biodiversity and mitigates the release of CO2 emissions.

    The project also fosters economic opportunities for local communities through sustainable farming and the sale of acai berries and medicinal plants, promotes environmental stewardship, and provides health services and educational courses.
    Verified Carbon Standard

    P&W reserves the right to source carbon offset credits originating from other projects at its entire discretion.

  • Frequently Asked Questions

    Close See details

    What is carbon offsetting?

    Carbon offsetting, also referred as carbon reduction or carbon compensation, is the term used for the action of reducing carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere to compensate CO2 emissions produced elsewhere. CO2 reduction from a different location than the CO2 source is a viable option, as CO2 has the same effect on the atmosphere wherever it is created or compensated.

    How is carbon offset achieved?

    The CO2 offset is achieved by investing in projects that reduce CO2 in the atmosphere, such as planting more trees and protecting areas from deforestation. Projects that are eligible under the P&W carbon offset service must be certified with rigorous standards to ensure key considerations such as:

    • Permanence of the emissions reduction.
    • Assurance that the reduction would not have happened without financial contribution as an enabler (i.e. the emissions reduction would not have happened otherwise due to regulations or normal conduct of business).
    • Transparency of the CO2 reductions achieved (e.g. the emission reduction is listed on a public registry).
    • Monitoring, reporting and verification of the projects driving the emission reduction.

    Why does CO2 offsetting matter?

    The release of CO2 in the atmosphere contributes to the greenhouse effect. The greenhouse effect is believed to cause climate change and global warming and having detrimental impact on the environment, economy and health of individuals. CO2 offsetting constitutes one favorable initiatives, among others, allowing reduction of the greenhouse effect.

    Why organizations and individuals rely on carbon offsetting instead of reducing or avoiding CO2 emissions at the source?

    Due to technological limitations, it is currently not possible to avoid CO2 emissions at the source for many industries, including aviation (aircraft engines use jet fuel which releases CO2 emissions in the atmosphere). However, P&W and Raytheon Technologies continuously invest to reduce their CO2 emissions and environmental footprint.

    P&W sustainability initiatives include: more efficient engines, reduced engine maintenance requirements and components replacement rates, material re-utilization and recycling, chemicals banning, machinery and sites optimization (energy and water usage, recycling, composting), and incentivizing use of public transit or working from home for employees. Combined with CO2 emission avoidance and reduction practices, carbon compensation is an initiative in the right direction.

    Do other options outside of carbon offset initiatives exist for operators to reduce their CO2 footprint?

    Not currently. Sustainable Aviation Jet Fuels (SAJF) utilization typically yield a much lower CO2 footprint than jet fuel. SAJF production figures are currently too low to meet market demand and SAJF are therefore not widely available to operators (all P&W engines are certified for utilization with SAJF). Electric and hybrid-electric aircraft are also in development phase but not foreseen to be on the market for passengers transportation until the next decade.

    Why do global carbon offset projects require funding?

    Although a rapidly growing number of organizations and individuals are recognizing the importance and long-term value in carbon offsetting projects, they still constitute “going beyond normal conduct of business” and require support and sustainment through ongoing funding. For example, forest conservation projects require funding to have a portion of the land purchased and permanently protected from deforestation. Forest conservation allows protected trees to capture and reduce CO2 from the atmosphere.

    How are charges for the carbon offset program calculated?

    Charges are established based on engine model and reported monthly engine utilization. The Service rates are outlined in Pricing section above.

    These charges have been determined estimating engine CO2 emissions per hour and market price for carbon offset ($ per ton of CO2 compensated).

    The service charges are on a pay-per-hour basis with no minimums and are added to your ESP invoice. ESPTM operators who pay taxes on their ESPTM invoice will also have to pay taxes on charges for this service. Service charges are flat (no escalation) for the 12-month period following service enrollment.

    Will certificates be issued to customers who enroll for this service?

    Yes, a Certificate of Service Subscription will be issued by Pratt & Whitney and a Certificate of Carbon Compensation will be issued by South Pole and provided by Pratt & Whitney.

    Will the carbon offset service be available for other Pratt & Whitney-powered aircraft?

    Based on the response to the service launched for turbofans on business jets, it could be introduced to customers of other P&W-powered aircraft in the future.

    What are other sustainability initiatives undertaken by Pratt & Whitney?

    Our vision is to be the best aerospace company for the world, for today and for future generations. We are integrating sustainability into all of our business activities. We aim to design, produce, operate and service products that have minimal impact on people and our planet throughout their entire life cycle.
