United Airlines

In order to reduce the climate change footprint associated with air travel, United offers their customers the opportunity to purchase carbon offsets from CI's Alto Mayo Conservation Initiative. This community-based project in Peru uses conservation agreements where local farmers pledge not to cut down the forest in return for services like technical training and other benefits. It has generated almost three million metric tons of emissions reductions between 2009 and 2012 — the equivalent of taking over 500,000 cars off the road for a year.​ For more information, visit​.

United Airlines is a member of CI’s Business & Sustainability Councils, a community of companies committed to leveraging their business experiences and resources to protect nature for the benefit of humanity.

CI and United Airlines have worked together since 1998 on efforts to bring attention to conservation issues. On Earth Day 2011, CI and United Airlines partnered around a promotion through which United donated $1 to CI for every passenger who used United’s mobile boarding pass feature. United Airlines featured video and print PSAs aboard their flights in 2003, 2009 and 2010. In 2009, Harrison Ford wrote t​​he first-person Voices column in United's onboard magazine to share his commitment to preventing deforestation and encouraging fliers to protect an acre.
