What we can do together

On top of our own CO2 investments, we know that passengers want to play their own active role in reducing their effect on the climate. The result is a compensation service called CO2ZERO; with a small contribution you can make your flight CO2 neutral.


CO2ZERO is a service where you compensate for your personal CO2 emissions by investing in CO2 reduction projects with the Gold Standard label initiated also by the World Wide Fund for Nature. 

It is quite simply the easiest, most effective and least costly way to fly CO2 neutral.

KLM keeps the cost low by: 

  • avoiding costly and unnecessary intermediate agents.
  • focusing on guaranteed realisation of renewable energy projects; not the ownership but the effect of a project is what matters.
  • selecting projects in the early development stages when the prices are still low.
  • calculating the actual CO2 emissions per destination. Thanks to fuel efficiency and the actual calculation method, CO2 emissions are mostly low compared to those within the airline industry.
  • by only calculating the actual handling charges.


Verification of the emission data and the methodology for calculating carbon emissions is done by KPMG Sustainability.
