Carbon offsetting

We are focused on reducing our carbon emissions as much as we can.  You can help too by offsetting the emissions associated with your journey. Our scheme, in partnership with offset experts ClimateCare, finances renewable energy and natural resource conservation projects around the world, helping people from poorer communities access cleaner, safer, affordable energy and reduce carbon emissions.

You can make a contribution to these offsetting projects, or calculate the cost of the carbon associated with a particular journey. Use the code Virgin2019 at the checkout to receive a discount on your purchase.

Carbon offsetting works by funding projects that reduce carbon emissions and support communities. There are strict criteria about what counts as a carbon reduction, the key one being that the projects would not go ahead without the carbon offset funding. Purchasing carbon credits can help create economic development opportunities, aids environmental conservation and helps improve people’s lives by delivering household savings, health benefits and improving water resources, among other social benefits.
