Pratt & Whitney, a division of Raytheon Technologies Corp. (NYSE: RTX), today announced that its Pratt & Whitney Canada unit is launching a carbon offset service for business jet operators with engines enrolled in an Eagle Service™ Plan (ESP™) maintenance program. Operators will be able to offset their aircrafts’ carbon footprint, while contributing towards greater environmental sustainability. The company is also announcing its commitment to offset the emissions of its entire fleet of corporate aircraft under Raytheon Technologies.
“Pratt & Whitney Canada has a long-standing commitment to offering environmentally responsible products and solutions to its customers. From being one of the first companies to certify its engines for use with sustainable aviation fuels to finding ways to minimize the impact of its operations and engines on the environment throughout their entire lifecycle,” said Satheeshkumar Kumarasingam, vice president of customer service at Pratt & Whitney Canada. “We are excited to announce this latest solution that supports our customers’ desire to act in an environmentally responsible way.”
As part of the carbon offset service, Pratt & Whitney Canada and South Pole - a globally recognized provider of environmentally sustainable solutions, take on the role of estimating and compensating aircraft emissions for the customer. The enrollment is easy, and the service is convenient, transparent, cost-effective and flexible, with customers paying service charges on their ESPTM invoice only when their aircraft is in flight. All customers will receive a certificate confirming that their carbon emissions have been offset.
“We all have a role to play in ensuring a healthy planet, so having environmentally sustainable options and solutions available to us as aircraft operators helps us reach our green objectives,” said Mike Wyant, responsible for Maintenance, Solairus Aviation. “We are pleased to be able to offset our carbon footprint by supporting projects that satisfy stringent standards while also contributing to local communities.”
