Carbon Offset Projects
Pure Leapfrog and British Airways have worked together to select carbon projects have the highest sustainability standards and strong social, as well as environmental outcomes.
SAF is also available as an option for fliers who wish to go that extra mile. Selecting this option will allow customers to part fuel their journey with fuel made from captured and recycled carbon such as food waste.
Mai Ndombe REDD+ project protects wildlife, wetlands, watersheds, ecosystem integrity as well as helping some of the most marginalized people on the planet.
The project is located in the second largest rainforest in the world, the Congo Basin. The project borders Lake Mai Ndombe and sits within the largest Wetland of International Importance in the world, as recognized by the Ramsar Convention.

Sustainable fuels are produced using renewable or recycled waste carbon meaning that British Airways displaces a litre of conventional jet fuel for every litre of SAF that it consumes. When the lifecycle emissions of SAF are calculated, they result in around 70-90% less CO2 emissions compared to conventional jet fuel.
