JetBlue’s Program with Carbonfund.org Recognized in Globe 100!
Tuesday, 18 May 2010
Congratulations to our partner JetBlue! The airline is highlighted for “True Green – Creative Conservation” in today’s special Globe 100 section of The Boston Globe. JetBlue enables travelers to reduce their carbon footprint by offsetting the emissions of their flight in support of three carbon reduction projects, including wind power, landfill methane capture, and the Tensas River National Wildlife Refuge Reforestation Project in Louisiana. JetBlue also offsets the business travel of its own crewmembers. “We can’t ask our customers to do something that we’re not doing,’’ said Gina Rauscher, manager of corporate social responsibility. Icema Gibbs, JetBlue’s director of corporate social responsibility, noted, “We have seen a lot of pickup from our customers. People are continually saying that this is great.’’ Check out the article in today’s Globe here! If you’re flying JetBlue, please visit: www.carbonfund.org/jetblue to reduce your travel footprint.
