Hunt & Palmer rolls out carbon initiatives

Air charter specialist Hunt & Palmer has announced the launch of its new carbon offsetting initiative which the company believes will appeal to those clients looking to balance the carbon emissions generated from flights booked with the company. 

To ensure the credibility of their offering, Hunt & Palmer have chosen to collaborate with C-Level, one of the most respected organisations in this sector, whose carbon balancing ensures verified action on carbon through the Plan Vivo network of charities and not-for-profit entities. 

Hunt & Palmer director Mark Jenkinson commented: “This is a very straight forward carbon balancing plan with no gimmicks or pretentions and which can apply equally well for corporate clients or individuals alike.

“Simply put, we advise our clients at the point of sale how much carbon tonnage is attributable to their charter and what the cost option is to balance or offset that by purchasing carbon compensation credits created by the Plan Vivo projects.”

According to Hunt & Palmer, C-Level has devised a system for the company that calculates the carbon tonnage for each flight using real world data for the specific aircraft types chartered on behalf of their clients. 

“It’s not us determining the carbon impact of any flight,” added Jenkinson. “That calculation is made using C-Level’s system and industry supplied data for the entire aircraft. This provides a level of independence to the process and is far more accurate for our purposes than the ‘per passenger’ model often used by individual travellers and some other businesses to calculate their carbon footprint.”

Those Hunt & Palmer clients opting to purchase carbon credits in the form of these multi benefit Plan Vivo Certificates will receive a carbon-balanced certificate from C-Level confirming their action on carbon through these well designed and monitored projects that provide verified carbon benefits by both protecting and restoring indigenous forests, thereby helping to achieve the Global SDG’s (sustainable development goals).
