Blue Skies®

A More Environmentally Friendly Way to Fly

In 2015, we launched Blue Skies By NetJets® to offer our Owners a more environmentally friendly way to fly. We are thrilled to continue offering this program for current and new Owners and encourage all Owners to enroll.

Review Our

Carbon Offset Program

By joining Blue Skies, participating Owners will purchase an equivalent amount of carbon offsets to the carbon footprint of their annual flight hours—calculated by multiplying the carbon offset hourly rate for their aircraft type by total share size. Because of our partnership with ClimateCare®, your Blue Skies contribution goes directly toward supporting projects chosen by NetJets that reduce global CO2 emissions and ultimately improve lives.
Carbon Offset Hourly Rates
Example: 50-hour Sovereign Share
Carbon offset hourly rate for Sovereign = $34.16/hour
$34.16/hour x 50 hours = $1,708.00 total invoice for yearly carbon offset

Based on carbon fuel burn ($8.25/unit in 2019), the following chart shows our carbon offset hourly rates by aircraft:

PROJECTS IN THE BLUE SKIES PROGRAM

​​​​​Our Owners are supporting a portfolio of U.S. carbon projects that protect forests, capture and destroy landfill gas, and scale up renewable energy distribution. In line with our brand and reputation, all our chosen projects adhere to the leading global verification standards.

DEMPSEY RIDGE WIND FARM IN OKLAHOMA
Located on 7,400+ acres of agricultural and grazing land, this renewable wind project is helping power the low-carbon transition in the U.S. It is providing local jobs and clean, sustainable energy to over 46,000 homes. 

WINCHESTER LANDFILL GAS IN VIRGINIA
This award-winning landfill gas-to-energy project has involved the improvement of existing methane capture systems designed to catch the harmful gas produced by the county’s waste as it breaks down. The collection system then converts it into heat to generate electricity for the site and the local grid.

LANDFILL GAS METHANE CAPTURE IN OHIO
This project captures landfill gas from a gas collection and control system, destroying by flare and reducing net greenhouse gas emissions. In its process, it uses waste to generate energy, supplying power to more than 3,500 local homes in the county.

FOREST PROTECTION IN NEW JERSEY
Following the framework of Improved Forest Management, 3,000+ acres of forest area are being protected in northern New Jersey. Alongside carbon sequestration, conservation efforts protect native northern conifer and hardwoods, as well as wildlife species, including the golden winged warbler, ruffed grouse, and black bears.

These specific projects were selected by region to ensure a local impact to our Owners and their communities. In only a few years, our Owners participation has led to incredible results.
