Terms and Conditions for Carbon Calculator

Klappir Green Solutions and Kolviður have signed a collaborative agreement stating that Icelandair can now offer their passengers the opportunity to carbon offset their flights using Klappir digital solutions.

By basing calculations on Icelandair’s environmental statements, automatically generated by Klappir’s environmental solutions system, Icelandair, in collaboration with Kolviður, offers passengers the opportunity to offset their carbon footprint in a simple and efficient way.

Kolviður aims to sequester carbon in plants and soil in order to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere. Kolviður has plantations in Geitasandur and around Úlfljótsvatn. The next targeted areas are in the vicinity of Skálholt and on Mosfellsheiði. Kolviður operates under the surveillance of the Icelandic National Audit Office and the carbon offset is measured by ÍSÚ (Íslensk skógarúttekt – the Icelandic Forestry Inventory), which collects all mandatory data on the sequestration of carbon in the forest according to the criteria laid out by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change.
