What we're doing…

At Air Canada, we make great efforts to integrate environmental considerations into our business decisions and minimize our environmental footprint. Our approach is two-fold: Leave less through our operations — less carbon in our atmosphere, less waste in our land and water, and less noise in our communities. And Do more to address environmental issues — more collaboration and participation with our industry partners, more involvement in our communities and with employees and customers to have an even greater impact in our efforts.

Find out more about how we’re working to reduce our environmental impact at work and in our communities.

What you can do to help…

We all know that carbon dioxide (CO2) has an impact on climate change. You can make a difference by offsetting the CO2 emissions generated through your flight. We have partnered with Less Emissions to provide the highest quality carbon offsets to reduce the environmental impact of your flights. You can choose to purchase offsets to mitigate the CO2 emissions associated with your travel while supporting carbon reduction programs in developing countries and here in Canada.

Air Canada Cargo

E-freight is an industry-wide initiative that involves carriers, freight forwarders, ground handlers, shippers, customs brokers and customs authorities to replace paper documents used in all types of transport with electronic messages. E-Freight was launched in November 2007 in six countries, Canada being one of them. Once fully adopted by the industry as a whole, the program will have measurable results: E-freight will eliminate, on average, more than 7,800 tonnes of paper documents every year – enough to fill 80 Boeing 747 freighters.
