ZenithJet offsets 200% of its GHG emissions using Azzera.
At Zenith Jet we are committed to reducing our environmental impact as it relates to our day-to-day operations. Since we began reporting in 2021, we have offset 200% of ourcarbon emissions through the purchase of verified carbon offset projects in support of various initiatives worldwide.
Accordingly, we have invested in the following removal projects that adhere to the highest standards and are helping to remove CO2 emissions from the atmosphere.
Project types in ZenithJet’s portfolio are:
•Removal Credits – Biochar (25%)
•Removal Credits – Regenerative agriculture (25%)
•Removal Credits – Forestry (50%)
Biochar Carbon Sequestration (Germany)
NovoCarbo sequesters atmospheric carbon into biochar and put that valuable carbon to use: in healthy, fertile soil, blue green infrastructure to substituting fossil carbons in circular economy concepts. Through biochar they actively remove carbon from the atmosphere by converting high volumes of biogenic residues into sustainable carbon removal on an industrial scale.
Once incorporated into soil the carbon it contains is removed from the natural cycle for centuries: The most stable and safest CO2 sink and the only commercially proven Carbon Capture & Storage (CCS) technology becomes reality.
Carbon Removal by Regenerative Agriculture (USA)
Through the adoption of certain soil management and crop production practices, global food and fiber producers have the potential to draw CO2 from the atmosphere and store the recovered C in solid (organic or mineral) form in the earth’s topsoil layer. The multiple practices that food and fiber producers can employ to draw down and store C in terrestrial reservoirs are often referred to as regenerative, sustainable, carbon beneficial, or climate positive agriculture. When incremental CO2 is drawn out of the atmosphere, the recovered C is retained in the soil layer and, over time, an increase in the soil organic carbon (SOC) and/or soil mineral carbon (SMC) stocks is typically found in the topsoil. The project uses the carbon removal estimates generated by the carbon quantification tool to determine how many units to create for a project. When working with farmers, the project determines whether switching to regenerative practices has resulted in increased carbon removal and sequestration when compared to previous practices. The project generates one unit for farmers for every tonne of removed CO2e and stored in soils for a minimum of 10 years.
Monet Forest Conservation Project (Canada)
The conservation project is located in Abitibi, a forest region of northern Quebec that has been highly harvested by forest companies over the last 75 years – and still is. It is located in the habitat of the woodland caribou, an endangered species that is threatened by anthropogenic activities, and in the traditional territory of Indigenous communities. It is a private property owned by Solifor. The project is the first VCS Conservation project in North America. It generates a low annual volume of VCUs— of the finest quality.
The project allows the conservation of a large boreal forest massif known as “Bloc Monet”. No harvesting activities will occur on that 106 km2 of boreal forestland between 2016 and 2076, thus generating about 7,500 verified carbon units or VCUs annually.
