Mitigate your flights

As well as our Carbon Club, which allows you to mitigate your annual footprint via a monthly subscription with our Woodland Carbon Code certified UK woodland creation projects, you can also take care of the emissions from a flight on an as-and-when basis here.

There are lots of places offering flight footprint calculators - the International Civil Aviation Organisation for example - and having done some research on a few journeys we've found that no two give identical outputs, but that all answers are roughly in the same neighbourhood. We've set out some averages of indicative journeys below to save you some time. When it comes to mitigating your flights you'll need to round up to the nearest whole number - this is because individual carbon credits aren't divisible and we like things to be transparent. (It'll just mean you planted more trees than you needed to - no bad thing.) To the right are the purchase options. These are via GoCardless, a direct debit mechanism. Payments will be via a single, one-off, direct debit about a week after you make the purchase.

Flight mitigation will be at the same projects as are supported by our Carbon Club - you'll always know where your trees are.

Where our
projects are

Forest Carbon leads the way in developing woodland creation and peatland restoration projects for carbon capture and ecosystem services in the UK. We have planted over 10 million new trees in 200+ new woodlands since 2006 with our partners removing over 2 million tonnes of CO2e from the atmosphere, as well as providing a host of other benefits to society, including habitat creation, biodiversity support, flood mitigation, river ecosystem improvement and public access.

Our new woodland schemes spread across Scotland, England, Wales and Ireland. They are certified by the Woodland Carbon Code – which is supported by the UK government and internationally recognised by ICROA. Planting the ‘right tree in the right place’ is required though adherence to the Forestry Commission standards.

Our peatland schemes can be found in Scotland and Wales. They are certified by the Peatland Code which is supported by the IUCN. These certification codes assure the additionality and permanence of each tonne of carbon stored.
