EasyJet switches from offsetting to cutting

EasyJet has launched a roadmap to achieve net-zero carbon emission by 2050 and will see the airline flying zero carbon emission hydrogen-powered aircraft in the future.

The company is already working with partners across the industry, including Airbus and Rolls-Royce on several dedicated projects to accelerate the development of zero carbon emission aircraft technology. It is also investigating carbon removal technology to physically remove carbon from the atmosphere and sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) as an interim measure.

The plan announced will see the airline scrap its offsetting measures by the end of the year in favour of a target of a 78 per cent drop in emissions by 2050 from the above use of SAF and zero emission technology.

EasyJet has used offsetting for the last three years and will continue to offer a voluntary additional offsetting scheme to passengers in future.
