#24 | Sara Bogdan - JetBlue : Champion of Carbon-Neutral Airlines
In this episode of Sustainability Matters Today, I interview Sara Bogden, Manager of Sustainability and Environmental Social Governance at JetBlue and a Champion of Carbon-Neutral Airlines.
JetBlue is the sixth-largest Airline in the US in terms of passengers carried, operating over 1000 flights a day. Being part of the aviation industry, that’s responsible for 2% of the world's carbon emissions, JetBlue has a unique philosophy for its sector: “Sustainable planning is essential to our success—if we aren't thinking about solutions and working to achieve them it's not good business.”
While on the one hand climate change awareness has led to flight-shaming all around the world, JetBlue is taking huge steps towards carbon-neutral flying. Electric passenger planes might still be years in the making, but the company offers several solutions to make flying more environmentally friendly. Their strategy includes reducing emissions, by voluntarily retiring older airplane models, and replacing them with more efficient models, offsetting carbon emissions when possible and developing sustainable and renewable jet fuel. Both in the air and on the ground, they’re committed to developing solutions that are both good for the environment and financially beneficial.
