CWT and Etihad Airways have agreed to partner on a carbon offsetting initiative, as part of the launch of Etihad’s Corporate Conscious Choices programme.

Running from now until March 31, 2022, this partnership will see all offsets purchased go to Etihad’s offsetting climate action programmes in Makame Savannah REDD project in Tanzania, Peru’s Cordillera Azul National Park, and Indonesia’s Katingan Mentaya Project.

Beyond this initiative, the partnership will see both companies collectively and individually drive forward the carbon neutrality agenda alongside delivering tangible carbon footprint solutions.

CWT is one of the first organisations globally to participate in Etihad’s Corporate Conscious Choices sustainability programme, designed for organisations committed to reducing emissions and operating sustainably, with rewards and incentives designed to proactively support pro-environmental, social and governance initiatives and employee behaviour.

“Innovation and sustainability are at the core of our business, and our carbon-offsetting partnership with CWT is another fundamental iterative step towards us realising our ambitious sustainability goals to reduce carbon emissions in the air and through global partnership efficiencies,” said Tony Douglas, group CEO, Etihad Aviation Group.
