Carbon Offset Program
Each flight you take produces carbon dioxide (CO2), which contributes to climate change. At Air Canada we believe customers should have the option of offsetting the effects of their flight.
We have joined efforts with Zerofootprint, a not-for-profit organization that uses high standards in carbon offsetting, to help you mitigate the environmental footprint of your travel.
Choose from one or more of these Canadian projects that are taking meaningful steps to prevent climate change:
Forest restoration project – Maple Ridge, B.C.
Maple Ridge, British Columbia is the site of a forest restoration project that aims to create a forest that will continue to be healthy beyond the lifespan of the current generation of trees, maximize the amount of CO2 that can be sequestered (or absorbed), and emulate natural forest growth.
Landfill Gas Recovery Project – Niagara Falls, Ontario
The landfill gas recovery project - located in Niagara Falls, Ontario - captures landfill gas from the East Quarry landfill and distributes it to a nearby plant that produces recycled content paper.
Tire Recycling Program – Quebec
In Quebec, a tire recycling project utilizes used car and truck tires to manufacture a variety of products, including rubber carpets, car mats, new tires and other post-consumer goods.

Offset your Carbon Emissions
Learn more about the Zerofootprint project. You can calculate the cost of your share of the emissions created by your flight and purchase corresponding offsets.
We invite you to learn more about Air Canada's efforts to minimize our collective impact on the environment.
Carbon offsets are purchased from Zerofootprint, and not Air Canada. Air Canada is merely facilitating the purchase by customers of such credits. All the conditions included in the Notice section on aircanada.com apply.
