Flight Carbon Offset Calculator

Offset your Flight Carbon through ESRAG’s Pilot Carbon offsetting program.  

As Rotarians Connecting the World, we travel a lot, much of it by air. Travel by air emits lots of carbon  that has an increased warming effect of emissions at higher altitudes.  You can compensate for the carbon footprint of your air travel by estimating your emissions and donating the cost of the reducing a comparable amount of carbon  to ESRAG’s Carbon Offset Project Seed Fund.  

When the fund exceeds $10,000, we will convert it to a Donor Advised Fund within The Rotary Foundation.  We will invest the funds in worthy offset projects with four broad themes: (i) land use, reforestation and carbon sequestration; (ii) renewable energy and energy efficiency; (iii) regenerative agriculture; (iv) innovative technologies, all of which are designed to reduce future emissions or drawdown legacy carbon.

NOTE: This calculator works with Chrome and Firefox, but alas, only for Safari Version 13.0.5 or later.

Simple Directions - 

  1. Input the flight time of your trip, based on your best estimate. (methodology explained)
  2. Click whether the trip is Round trip or One way
  3. List the number of people you wish to offset carbon emissions for this trip (include spouse and children traveling with you)
  4. Choose the seat class for your airfare. If you fly business or first class, you use more of the aircraft's space, so your seat is responsible a larger percentage of the total emissions of the aircraft.
  5. Choose the Basic rate or the Premium rate for your offset. Airlines typically charge around $10/tonne for their offsets. Trading systems put a price of about $30/tonne.
  6. See the Offset Donation suggested by calculations
  7. Type in the amount that you desire to offset in the next field (numbers only), and press the "Submit" button to continue
  8. Use your credit or debit card to make the payment to ESRAG.
  9. Receive your carbon offset certificate for you to print in an email showing that your payment was accepted.

All contributions to the ESRAG Carbon Offset Seed Fund are tax deductible for US taxpayers to the extent allowed under law.
