Fly Uganda Goes Carbon Neutral

We took the decision to go Carbon Neutral in April 2012 as part of its ‘green’ commitment to lead Africa’s aviation fraternity in becoming more environmentally aware. Becoming Africa’s first “Carbon Neutral” Aviation Company.

We have purchased a number of Plan Vivocarbon credits from the acclaimed Trees for Global Benefits project in Bushenyi. This project is a smallholder tree-planting scheme located just south of Queen Elizabeth National Park in western Uganda. The tree growers not only increase biodiversity in the area, but they are protecting the watershed, controlling soil erosion, and are increasing household incomes from the payments they receive for the carbon stored in their trees. The project provides technical advice on tree growing to farmers.
