Private Jet Carbon Offset Calculator

Our private jet carbon offset calculator is a tool that will help you check the CO2 emission levels for different jets. You can find out which jets could be the best option for a given route in terms of CO2 emissions.

The private jet carbon footprint offset calculator is an educational tool that allows you to see a selection of the best jets for a given flight in terms of CO2 emissions. Please note that sometimes the greenest option may not be the best choice, as there may be situations where the jet with the lowest emission will not be available within proximity and will have to be repositioned which will emit additional CO2.

The tool simply provides suggestions that may or may not be taken into consideration. If you would like to know if a recommended jet is available for the route, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Why Is It Worth Reducing The Carbon Footprint?

Global CO2 emissions rebound by nearly
5% in 2021, approaching the 2018-2019 peak*


Earth. Home to almost 8 billion people, with more than 70% of its surface covered by oceans. Yet, a number of environmental issues occur on the planet. Even though we know some things may negatively influence the Earth, it's hard to radically change the way we live and travel. But, there are some things that we, as humans, can do to make living on our planet a bit better, like reducing our carbon footprint or purchasing offsets.

Our mission is to help make private aviation greener around the world by making the process of offsetting carbon emissions for private jets simpler, faster, and more accessible to the entire private aviation industry. That is why we created the carbon footprint calculator. – Richard Zaher, CEO of Paramount Business Jets

Offset Your Carbon Footprint By Investing In Nature

Trees are an important part of our world.

Without them, life on our planet wouldn’t exist. They supply us with the most vital chemical element – oxygen, but they also protect the ground from erosion, and absorb CO2, saving us from pollution. Let’s take a look at the numbers.

28% Rainforests are responsible for 28% of Earth’s oxygen

As you can see in the infographic above, it would take $471.25 to plant 471 trees. The planted trees would then produce about 122,594 pounds of oxygen that could potentially supply 75 humans per year.

How about CO2? Well, when matured, the 471 trees would absorb about 21 816 pounds of CO2 per year. The infographic proves that it’s really important to take care of nature, and nature will take care of us in return.

Seagrass Is Our Best Ally In Reducing The Carbon Footprint

Oceans cover the largest area of our world – more than ⅔ of the globe. But did you know that seagrass is responsible for 70% of the world’s oxygen? In the infographic below, you can see the data, from the number of potentially planted seagrass to the absorbed CO2 all the way to produced oxygen.

70% Marine plants are responsible for 70% of Earth’s oxygen

As you can see, seagrass is a lifesaver indeed. For the $471.25 you could potentially plant 475 square feet of seagrass. The planted seagrass would in return absorb 4 tonnes of CO2, and that’s not all!

The world’s friendliest marine plant would also supply us with 466 qt of emitted oxygen a day, which would be enough for 218 humans for an entire year! Additionally, it could support 353 fish and 4,413 invertebrates.

Now you know that. How about offseting your flight?

Download Your Free Private Jet Carbon Emission Offset System

You Deserve to Fly in Style

Dear Competitor,

Download your free private carbon offsetting system and use it freely to support and educate your partners.

Click to download the file for free.

We've open-sourced this system's code and it's available as a free download for the entire industry.

The system has been created with HTML and JavaScript, with minimal CSS for styling. This is mainly as a proof of concept and to make it as easy as possible to modify and brand it according to your needs.

Feel free to integrate it and adapt the code with your preferred backend language to create your unique version of the Private Jet Carbon Offset System.

How Does the Carbon Offsetting Calculator Work?

The JavaScript file contains two JSON objects (aircraftById and aircraftByCategory) for the aircraft data, including the fuel burn for each type of aircraft. These numbers have been sourced through research.

Some aircraft do not have fuel burn numbers. For those aircraft, the system estimates the fuel burn by taking the average of all the other aircraft in the same category.

The formula used to calculate the emissions in pounds (lbs) is:

Emissions (lbs)
= Flight Time (hours) x Fuel Burn (gal/hr) x 21.1*

The emissions are converted to Metric Tonnes (mT) as follows:

Emissions (mT)
= Emissions (lbs) / 2204.60

*21.1 is the Carbon Dioxide Emissions Coefficient for Jet Fuel (lbs of CO2 emitted per gallon of fuel burnt), as specified by the US Energy Information Administration.
