Forwarder Senator International Chile has signed up to LATAM Cargo’s carbon reduction programme as part of efforts to reduce its environmental impact.

The cargo carrier’s Let’s Fly Neutral programme aims to encourage customers to offset emissions by matching every ton of CO2 offset by customers.

Senator International Chile commercial manager Pablo Arze said: “Dealing with environmental impacts and contributing to renewable energy projects is an urgent need. That is why when we got LATAM Cargo’s invitation to be part of this initiative, we signed on straight away.

“We appreciate this amazing opportunity to be strategic allies contributing responsibly toward measures that benefit both the environment and the communities where the project is located.”

The programme offers offset options through the purchase of carbon credits supporting projects in South America that generate an immediate impact on the environment and communities since they reduce, capture or prevent greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) by an amount equivalent to their calculated carbon footprint. 

Among the projects available to receive funding, Senator International Chile opted for one located in the Atacama Desert for clean and renewable solar energy production.

This project also aims to help position Chile as a leader in solar energy, diversify the energy matrix and create job and business opportunities in the Copiapó region. 

The carbon offsets available on the platform are Voluntary Emission Reduction units, certified under internationally recognised standards such as the VCS, the Gold Standard, the American Carbon Registry and the Climate Action Reserve, as well as United Nations Certified Emission Reduction units.
