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.

Air Canada has partnered with CHOOOSE to provide its customers with verified carbon offsets to compensate the estimated greenhouse gas emissions associated with their flight.
The voluntary program gives customers the opportunity to support certified third-party projects that reduce, capture, or avoid GHG emissions around the world. The option to purchase verified carbon offsets is now seamlessly integrated into the airline’s Canadian and U.S. booking websites.

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. Use e-freight at stations that are e-freight friendly Opens in New Window.
