Hawaiian Airlines reduces CO2 emissions

Hawaiian Airlines has reduced its carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions by nearly 22,000 metric tons over the past six years using an eco-friendly engine washing technology developed by Pratt & Whitney. The airline has earned the first-ever aviation based carbon credits – one credit is equal to the removal of one ton of CO2.

“We are proud to be the first airline to receive verified carbon credits for reducing emissions,” said Mark Dunkerley, president and CEO of Hawaiian Airlines, in a written statement. “Importantly, engine washing with EcoPower is helping us to mitigate rising fuel costs and significantly reduce Hawaiian’s carbon footprint at the same time.”
