Launch of NEUTRAVEL Program is CO2 Neutral

LATAM Airlines Group and SCX came together to launch NEUTRAVEL Program in Chile

On Tuesday January 13th, LATAM Airlines Group, the leading airline group in Latin America, and SCX, the first private climate exchange in the southern hemisphere, launch NEUTRAVEL in Chile, the first program in the region destinated to offset CO2 emissions from corporate flights.

NEUTRAVEL is a program that will be gradually implemented in the countries of the region, joining companies concerned about reducing the impact of its activities on climate change, through the measurement, verification and offset of the carbon footprint of their corporate flights.

The measurement of the carbon footprint of the event will be conducted by ProyectaE, while the verification will be conducted by Deloitte, as independent third party. The resulting amount of carbon emissions will be offset and removed from the international registry by SCX.
