United Airlines to Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions by 100%



United Airlines is taking its most ambitious step yet in leading the fight against climate change: pledging to become 100% green by reducing its greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 100% by 2050.


United will advance towards carbon neutrality by committing to a multimillion-dollar investment in revolutionary atmospheric carbon capture technology known as Direct Air Capture .


With this unprecedented announcement, United becomes the first airline in the world to announce a commitment to invest in Direct Air Capture technology.


Rather than simply taking a conventional approach to decarbonization by relying solely on the

purchase of carbon offsets, United intends to make a multimillion-dollar investment in 1PointFive.


1PointFive's mission is to curb the rise in global temperatures by physically removing carbon dioxide (CO2) from the air using Direct Air Capture technology licensed from Carbon Engineering.


With up to 80% less lifecycle carbon emissions than conventional jet fuel, sustainable aviation fuel is the fastest and most effective way United is reducing its emissions.


Among all airlines globally, United holds more than 50% of all publicly announced future purchase commitments to using SAF and has the longest history of using SAF of any U.S. airline.


Last year, United renewed its contract with Boston-based World Energy, agreeing to purchase up to 10 million gallons of cost-competitive SAF which it has used since 2016 to help sustainably power every flight departing Los Angeles.

Wow! Stunning! Hilton seems to be taking Africa by storm. Just a couple of years back, they opened the first ever in Eswatini.
