If I offset my emissions, can I fly as much as I want?
No. Aviation has a negative impact on the climate and should be avoided wherever possible. If journeys can be made using bus or train, then these more climate-friendly modes of transportation should be used. BOKU also recommends virtual participation in conferences and meetings, using video conferencing tools, rather than flying to the venue. BOKU is currently working on the implementation of such possibilities.
If air travel is unavoidable, then the BOKU carbon offset system, offers the possibility of offsetting the emissions caused, elsewhere.
