Now you can compensate for your flight by physically removing your CO₂ emissions from the atmosphere with high quality carbon removal projects

Certified quality

Play has chosen Klimate as a partner to ensure project quality and transparency

In order to ensure that you are only supporting the best possible projects, Klimate provides a thorough analysis looking at the "climate impact", "social and environmental impact", "validation" and "outlook".

Introducing

Total tons of carbon removed by Klimate

Our approach

We analyse high-quality projects from around the globe,

exclusively sourcing projects that remove carbon

Direct Air Capture

€€€EUR 700-900 / Ton

Direct Air Capture uses large fan-like machines to pull CO directly out of the atmosphere. Captured CO can either be stored permanently in rock formations underneath the earth’s surface or reused for other materials.

Bio-Oil

€€€EUR 500-600 / Ton

By heating up biomass to extremely high temperatures without oxygen, carbon is locked up in bio-oil. This carbon-rich material can then either be stored away permanently underground or be refined and used as a green energy source.

Enhanced weathering

€€EUR 100-200 / Ton

Enhanced weathering is a nature-based carbon removal solution that enhances CO₂ absorption by the ocean. When applying olivine-containing rock onto coastlines, it dissolves in seawater, which increases ocean's CO₂ uptake.

Ocean Blue Carbon

€€EUR 150-250 / Ton

Ocean Blue Carbon is a method that taps into the carbon sequestration potential of ocean biomass. CO2 is permanently removed from the atmosphere by transporting seaweed to the middle of the ocean and sinking the carbon-rich biomass to its depths.

Biochar

€€EUR 100-190 / Ton

Heating waste biomass to high temperatures without oxygen turns it into carbon-rich biochar. Applied to soils, biochar is great for storing carbon for a long time while simultaneously increasing agricultural productivity.

Soil Sequestration

EUR 10-30 / Ton

Soils are great at capturing carbon, but the overuse of soils over the past decades has reduced their ability to do so. Diverse techniques can optimize and help regain the carbon-capturing properties of soils.

Forestation

EUR 15-30 / Ton

Trees are the earth’s natural carbon removal machines. Trees sequester CO₂ using photosynthesis and store it in every part of the tree. A single tree can capture up to a ton of CO₂ in its lifetime.

Our evaluation criteria

Thorough analysis ensures the

highest-quality carbon removal

Impact

Climate impact

We evaluate the permanence, rapidity, and permanence of carbon removal projects to determine the impact they have on climate change.

Permanence

Carbon removal projects reduce climate change by removing atmospheric CO₂, storing it in reservoirs, and preventing it from being re-emitted. The more permanent a removal is, the longer it keeps carbon locked away in reservoirs.

Rapidity

The time period between emissions occurring and carbon removal projects sequestering those emissions (in various reservoirs) affects how much emissions contribute to climate change. Faster reductions means less warming from CO₂.

Impact

Co-benefits

Beyond carbon removal, we evaluate the social and environmental benefits that carbon removal projects generate.

Environment

Carbon removal projects can generate environmental benefits, such as biodiversity or clean air. But they can also cause environmental harms, such as waste, pollution, or biodiversity loss. Both aspects must be considered.

Social

Resulting from its activities, carbon removal projects can generate social benefits, such as jobs and welfare. But they can also cause social harms, such as loss of livelihoods or noise pollution. Both aspects must be considered.

Integrity

Validation

We analyse the accounting, certification standard, and verification procedures of carbon removal projects to ensure sound and credible projects.

Carbon Accounting

Systems to monitor, measure, and report on CO₂ emissions enables carbon removal projects to account for the carbon removed. This enables traceability and fosters transparency, building credibility in carbon removal projects.

Verification

Carbon removal projects must have procedures in place to ensure and verify that CO₂ emissions are removed. Projects can follow certification standards, such as Verra or Gold Standard, or various technology-specific procedures. In addition, projects might include tailored solutions, such as blockchain or satellite monitoring.

Integrity

Outlook

We analyse the potential benefits and risks of the carbon removal projects and technologies to future-proof your investments.

Potential

Carbon removal projects differ on many fronts, utilising nature-based, technical or hybrid solutions. These differences cause projects and technologies to have different potentials for scale and scope, which should be considered.

Risk

Carbon removal projects carry inherent risks, both natural and man-made. These must be evaluated and mitigated to ensure the lowest possible risk of carbon removal projects not delivering on their promise of removing CO₂.

You might ask...

How do we calculate your emissions?

We only operate Airbus A320neo Family aircraft that have the newest technology and 15-20% lower fuel consumption than older generation aircraft. All A320neo family aircraft have similar fuel consumption so you can always be sure, when flying with PLAY, that you are in a fuel-efficient aircraft. What may vary from one flight to another is load factor and weather conditions. 

For the calculation of CO per flight, we use the following variables:

  • Our own history fuel data to find average fuel consumption for each destination.  To factor in uncertainty and variance we add 10% buffer 
  • Average number of passengers, which is the load factor. Our load factor is adjusted frequently to ensure accuracy, but is typically above 80%
  • Average flight time for each destination 
  • Emission factor, 3.15 according to EU/UK – Emissions Trading System (ETS)

CO per passenger for selected destination = Average fuel consumption x flight time of selected destination x emission factor (3.15) / load factor

Where does my offset contribution go?

We partner with Klimate to remove your emissions with diverse suppliers listed in your removal selection.

When you choose one of these removal options, 20% of your cost will cover operational costs for Klimate and no other cost will be charged by PLAY.

We split your contribution in order to optimise your climate impact. Some remove CO₂ from the atmosphere for thousands of years, while others will only keep it out for a few decades. Some have great benefits for biodiversity and social impact while others only remove CO₂.

By increasing your budget, you augment your portion of permanent solution in your removal, and crucially send a market signal that there is demand for new solutions to the climate challenge.

We didn't make this up ourselves, if you want to dig into the science of why we need to combine methods, we strongly encourage you to read the Oxford Principles for future-aligned Offsetting.

What is carbon footprint?

A carbon footprint is the total greenhouse gas emissions caused by an individual, event, organization, service, place or product, expressed as carbon dioxide equivalent. In this instance, the carbon footprint of your flight with us.

What is carbon offsetting?

An offset or compensation is an action taken by entities or individuals to level their emissions by paying for carbon negative activities. In general, offsets aim to remove or avoid the same amount of emissions as have been caused.

What is additonality?

Additionality is a defining concept of carbon-offset projects. To qualify as a genuine carbon offset, the reductions achieved by a project need to be 'additional' to what would have happened if the project had not been carried out (e.g. continued as business-as-usual)
