Textron announces carbon offset program for Cessna, Beechcraft and Hawker aircraft


Textron Aviation announced SustainableAdvantage℠ to provide owners with an additional option for reducing their CO2 emissions from operating aircraft.

“Owners have increasingly become interested in solutions that mitigate the carbon footprint of operating their aircraft,” said Brad White, senior vice president, Textron Aviation.

The program, in collaboration with 4AIR, is set to launch in January 2024 and will be available to eligible customers who own and operate Cessna, Beechcraft and Hawker turbine aircraft worldwide.

4AIR will provide aircraft owners a personalized, annual report that will document offset purchases in addition to helping them meet their monitoring and compliance reporting requirements.

“SustainableAdvantage provides them the opportunity to have a seamless option to offset their carbon emissions through a Textron Aviation approved program and supplier,” added White.

Textron Aviation will administer SustainableAdvantage programs and connect aircraft owners with 4AIR.

SustainableAdvantage will offer owners the option to offset their aircraft emissions footprint with 4AIR’s Bronze Level. Carbon offsets reduce emissions elsewhere which can be claimed against the carbon footprint from operating aircraft.

“We are excited to provide Cessna, Beechcraft and Hawker owners with sustainable solutions that address and meet their environmental commitments and goals,” said Nancy Bsales, chief operating officer, 4AIR.

The SustainableAdvantage portfolio, managed by 4AIR, supports four projects around the globe including Rainier Gateway Forestry Project, Cookstove Project, Bundled Solar and Solar Energy – Renewable Power by Adani.
