By American Airlines Newsroom July 22, 2020

American Airlines is partnering with Cool Effect to connect its customers with options for offsetting the carbon emissions associated with their flights, part of the airline’s long-term commitment to help reduce the impact of air travel on the environment.

Cool Effect is a nonprofit organization that sources high-quality, verified carbon reduction projects across the globe and is recognized for rigorous vetting and full pricing transparency.

“Sustainability is as important to us as it is to our customers, and even in circumstances as challenging as these, our focus on climate change has not diminished,” said Alison Taylor, Chief Customer Officer for American Airlines. “Carbon offsetting is not a complete or perfect solution to the environmental challenges we face as a society and as an airline, but we want to do what we can right now to make a difference. We’re proud to connect our customers with a trusted partner like Cool Effect, and we appreciate all those who are willing to join our efforts to help better protect the planet as we connect the world.”
