Turkish Airlines has launched a new programme called Co2mission, which offers options for passengers to offset the carbon emissions of their flight.

The programme's website offers numerous portfolio options for carbon offset with environmental and communal benefits such as renewable energy and forestation. Passengers aiming to offset the emission of their flight can do so by contributing their desired amount to the project portfolio of their choice, thus purchasing a UN-accredited emission reduction certification.

Flight date information along with arrival-departure destinations are sufficient to take part in the carbon offset process. Passengers can complete their carbon offset process whenever they want.

With Turkish Airlines' Co2mission platform, it is possible to calculate the carbon offset amount using International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) methodology, which considers route length, aircraft type, fuel consumption and numerous other factors. 

The platform can be accessed through Turkish Airlines website during ticket purchases or directly through the Co2mission website.
