NatureAir, a passenger airline in Costa Rica, is the world’s first certified carbon neutral airline. Since 2004, NatureAir has helped protect and conserve over 500 acres of tropical forests in the Osa Peninsula of Costa Rica. They also have the distinction of being Costa Rica’s first biodiesel aviation fueling company.
NatureAir’s strong environmental credentials have not escaped notice—last year NatureAir was selected by the United Nations Environment Programme to become the first airline in the world to join UNEP’s Climate Neutral Network.
The folks at NatureAir also maintain a blog that keeps up to speed with important environmental issues in Costa Rica and around the world. Reforest the Tropics (RTT) is proud to have been recently featured on the NatureAir blog, which highlighted RTT’s reforestation efforts in Costa Rica and introduced our director, Dr. Herster Barres, to the NatureAir community.
RTT commends NatureAir on its pathbreaking efforts at greening the passenger airline indutry.
