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.

Cardamom, Cambodia

This project protects the last great rainforest of Asia, located in the Cardamom mountains in south-west Cambodia. Rainforest once covered south-east and south Asia but only 5% remains, and this precious biodiverse region is now particularly vulnerable due to an exponential increase in illegal land grabbing resulting from increased land prices.

Cordillera Azul, Peru

Protecting this stunningly biodiverse region at the intersection of the Andes ranges and the Amazon basin, home to thousands of unique species, indigenous and immigrant communities through conservation-based land use practices and strengthened park protection regimes.

Darfur Cook Stoves, Sudan

This award-winning project, the first registered carbon credit project in Sudan and the first to be developed in a conflict zone, provides low smoke cook stoves to communities, replacing wood and charcoal burning inside the home.

Sustainable Aviation Fuel

 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.
