Call UFX (1-877-MYCLIMATE) to book a hybrid rental car or reserve a plane ticket. Buy a Green Class Ticket for $8 to $10 more than a regular one and we donate 5 to 15 percent of our commission to solar energy and reforestation projects around the world.

As a pioneer in corporate travel and a Myclimate partner, United Fairfax Travel / American Express donate a portion of every “Green Class” ticket to offset carbon emissions caused by air travel. Myclimate invests in clean energy projects that prevent future emissions, thus offsetting the climate impact created by your travel. Investments go to a community or a project that benefits local people as well as the world’s atmosphere.
What’s a green airline seat?
A green class seat on an airline is one where a portion of the cost of the airfare goes toward off setting carbon emissions generated by that aircraft.
What is a carbon offset?
A carbon offset is an investment into a project or action with the goal of eliminating greenhouse gas emissions. Offset projects come in many varieties and may include tree planting or reforestation, building retrofits (i.e. installing more efficient heating/cooling systems) or wind power projects. The common goal is to reduce fossil fuel usage, which in turn, eliminates harmful greenhouse gas emissions.
