How does Myclimate calculate the compensation?
Myclimate calculates the full impact on the climate of the travel activity for the compensation.
The Myclimate flight calculator determines the quantity of CO2 emissions that an airplane emits per passenger for a given flight distance. Nitrogen compounds and aerosols are also included and converted into CO2 equivalents.
The calculation is based on average consumption data for typical short-haul and long-haul airplanes. The calculation also takes into account whether you are flying economy, business or first class.
