We believe that everyone should travel and discover our beautiful planet, but we must enable sustainability at the core. We’re only at the start of our journey, however, myCiity is committed to making a positive impact.
Go travel, but do it responsibly.
Experience our world on less CO2
Who would have thought that in 2020 travel would nearly come to a halt. The world has changed – but our passion for travel has not. We believe that the global community will soon open again and we’ll have a fresh appreciation for its wonders – as well as an opportunity to rethink the way we travel.
When it comes to sustainability and travel saving CO2 is more than just finding the right flight. Traveling is beautiful and throughout our entire journey, we can make choices that help reduce each of our individual carbon footprints. This begins with planning to transportation to activities and what we consume. Each choice we make adds up to a larger sum that can make a difference – even when on vacation. We want to bring sustainable travel closer to your heart through tips, ideas, tools, and more. So be inspired.

How to offset carbon emissions properly
Calculating CO₂ emissions is complicated
There are a variety of factors that affect the total amount of CO2 emitted that often times it is near impossible for a traveler to figure out their emissions because this will depend on a variety of factors including cabin class, aircraft type, the flight profile, cargo load, etc.
With each flight the most jet fuel is used during take-off and landing. Flying direct means you only do this once.
It is important to look at how well an airline is performing overall on multiple CO₂-reducing factors.
Newer aircraft models are up to 30% more fuel-efficient than older models.
The more passengers the better. A fully booked plane has more passengers, which means less CO₂ per passenger.
A flight in economy class may not be the most comfortable, but more passengers can fly in economy and therefore they take up less space, which means less CO₂ per passenger.
We are working on integrating CO2 offsetting projects.
We at myCiity are hard at work to integrate CO₂ offsetting through a variety of methods. This will include tools to calculate with high accuracy each flight’s CO2 emissions, projects to enable CO2 offsetting and create more ways of sustainable travel through forward-thinking capabilities by putting the environment first.
10 tips to reduce your carbon footprint
For a future where travel uses less CO2
Roughly 2% of man-made CO2 emissions are emitted from flying. myCiity is working on eco-conscious initiatives to help reduce that percentage from growing. We know there is no simple solution, however, if we all keep the future of our planet in mind, we can work together to make the world a cleaner, greener place without sacrificing the endless beauty of discovering.
