Why carbon removal?
Flying causes emissions of CO₂ , contributing to climate change. Carbon removal projects use different techniques to remove CO₂ from the atmosphere. This allows you to compensate for CO₂ that has already been emitted to the atmosphere.
At PLAY, we work with Klimate.co to remove an equal amount of CO₂ emitted by your flight. The three portfolios that PLAY offers in partnership with Klimate.co exclusively consist of carbon removal projects.
Remove CO₂ emissions with the best projects from around the world*
Charm Industrial converts waste biomass, such as sawdust, into bio-oil using a process called fast pyrolysis. Then they inject the bio-oil, a liquid oil-like substance, into underground rock formations for long term storage.
Verora is a Swiss biochar producer using wood chips from tree and shrub cuttings to produce energy and soil substrates. They have optimised the use of biochar in farming through observations and relations with the farming community, making them experts in agricultural biochar use.
The Carbuna project sources biochar from different types of plants and feedstocks, and processes biochar into high-quality products in their own production facilities.
Running Tide’s pilot project in the North Atlantic combines photosynthesis, ocean currents, and gravity by utilising kelp to store carbon in the deep ocean for thousands to millions of years. Their technology is guaranteed to be scalable, low-cost, permanent, and additional.
UNDO’s enhanced weathering project speeds up the natural process of weathering. UNDO spreads crushed basalt rock on agricultural land, which capture the carbon in minerals. This locks away CO₂ permanently, quickly and at scale.
Ruumi’s projects actively remove carbon via soil sequestration by applying a technique known as regenerative agriculture. This technique leads to several co-benefits such as improved soil health, biodiversity and increased water-retention capacity.
Canada-based Taking Root’s non-profit reforestation project is located in Nicaragua. They promote social and economic development in Central America by encouraging smallholder-farmers to reforest their farms using native trees.

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 undergoes a thorough analysis looking at the climate impact, social and environmental impact, integrity and outlook.
Klimate evaluates the permanence, rapidity and additionality of carbon removal projects to determine the impact they have on climate change.
Social and environmental impact
Beyond carbon removal, Klimate evaluates the social and environmental benefits that carbon removal projects generate.
Klimate analyses the accounting, certification standards, and verification procedures of carbon removal projects to ensure sound and credible projects.
Klimate analyses the potential benefits and risks of the carbon removal projects and technologies to future-proof your investments.
You might ask...
How do we calculate your emissions?
We only operate Airbus A320neo Family aircrafts that have the newest technology and 15-20% lower fuel consumption than older generation aircrafts. All A320neo family aircrafts 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 CO₂ 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)
CO₂ 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 a 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 additionality?
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)
