Now you can compensate for your flight by physically removing your CO₂ emissions from the atmosphere with high quality carbon removal projects
* required answer
Our 3 carbon removal options
Plant trees with certified projects
Planting trees and kelp, known as the "trees of the ocean", to help nature’s own way of taking CO₂ out of the atmosphere. This is a cost-effective way to remove CO₂, which also has benefits for people and animals.

Go beyond planting trees
Go beyond trees and use a mix of nature-based, engineered and hybrid carbon removal methods. In this way you can remove a part of your emissions permanently while keeping the cost at a level that will not break your travel budget.

Make your removal permanent
Remove your emissions and keep them out of the atmosphere for hundreds of years, through hybrid and engineered methods such as biochar, bio-oil and blue carbon.

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 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.
Running Tide’s pilot project in the North Atlantic combines photosynthesis, ocean currents, and gravity by utilizing 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.
Carbonfuture generates biochar from waste biomass and puts it back into the soil. Their system ensures documented and verified removals for more than 100 years.
Nori pays farmers for storing carbon in the soil using regenerative agriculture projects and techniques. They built a blockchain-based accouting system which eliminates risks of double counting and fraud.
FCOTI provides over 1000 small-scale farmers with financial incentives to plant trees and boost soil carbon storage in Timor Leste- reversing climate change, deforestation, and soil degradation.

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".
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.

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 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. Today we are using 70% load factor and as soon as we see it increase, we will change that variable accordingly in our formula
- 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 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)
