Harbour Air – Our commitment to the coast:
Harbour Air Seaplanes has been flying BC’s beautiful coast since 1982. What started as a small operation with two planes now services six year-round base locations across BC’s lower mainland and Vancouver Island, flying over 350,000 passengers annually with a fleet of more than 50 aircraft. People fly with us for work, for fun and some just for the view!
When you see what we see every day- BC’s spectacular natural beauty- you’re constantly reminded of the commitment we have to maintaining and protecting the environment here and abroad. Our province’s vast and often wild geography is practically made for air travel, and the stunning journeys never fail to reaffirm our commitment to being part of the solution.
Harbour Air Seaplanes is proud to be North America’s first carbon neutral airline (Since 2007).
All Harbour Air flights include a carbon offset surcharge that is used to mitigate the environmental impact of greenhouse gas emissions (GHG’s). Carbon offsets are provided by Vancouver-based Offsetters.
What makes Harbour Air’s carbon neutral program unique?
Not only is your flight carbon neutral, but so is everything else we do. Harbour Air is the only airline in North America that measures, reduces and offsets 100% of corporate emissions. This includes all aspects of our operations including:
- Heating, cooling and lighting at all facilities
- Ground transportation services
- Employee business travel and commuting to work
- Paper and commercial printing
What makes Offsetters’ carbon offsets different from those of other providers?
Offsetters is Canada’s largest and most diversified carbon management solutions provider. Its team of industry leaders specializes in the development and commercialization of high-quality carbon offset projects. With a comprehensive offering of sustainability consultancy services, Offsetters helps organizations understand, reduce and offset their climate impact.
All offsets are third-party verified and invested in projects that would not have taken place without funding from individuals and companies like Harbour Air. Every Offsetters project is validated and verified to be real, additional, verifiable and socially beneficial.
