Developed in collaboration with 4AIR, the new SustainableAdvantage carbon offset program will provide Textron Aviation aircraft's owners with additional options for reducing their carbon dioxide emissions.

The new SustainableAdvantage program is set to launch in January 2024 and will be available to eligible Textron Aviation customers who own and operate Cessna, Beechcraft, and Hawker aircraft worldwide.

“Owners have increasingly become interested in solutions that mitigate the carbon footprint of operating their aircraft,” said Brad White, senior vice president, Global Parts and Programs, Textron Aviation. “SustainableAdvantage provides them the opportunity to have a seamless option to offset their carbon emissions through a Textron Aviation approved program and supplier.”

Textron Aviation will administer SustainableAdvantage as part of its ProAdvantage programs and connect owners to 4AIR. 4AIR is the first company to offer comprehensive sustainability solutions for business aviation. SustainableAdvantage will offer owners the option to offset their footprint 100% with 4AIR’s Bronze Level. Carbon offsets reduce emissions elsewhere which can be claimed against the carbon footprint from operating aircraft.

“Our relationship with Textron Aviation acknowledges the many strides we have made in the industry to make sustainability more accessible,” said Nancy Bsales, chief operating officer, 4AIR. “We are excited to provide Cessna, Beechcraft and Hawker owners with sustainable solutions that address and meet their environmental commitments and goals.”

4AIR will provide owners who choose to join SustainableAdvantage a personalized, annual report that will document offset purchases. Additionally, 4AIR offers monitoring and compliance reporting requirements for the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA) and the European Union, French and United Kingdom Emissions Trading System (ETS) as well as other ESG reporting requirements.
