KLM: All about sustainable travel

Share this story

Fly Responsibly

Fly Responsibly is our commitment to taking a leading role in creating a more sustainable future for aviation. We are continuously investing and innovating to make our products and processes more sustainable. However, much more is needed. We know being an airline comes with another big responsibility: making sure our children have a planet to explore as well. With the introduction of Fly Responsibly, we are making the world aware of our shared responsibility. We can only succeed if we work together, so join us today for a more sustainable tomorrow.

KLM’s roadmap to Carbon reduction

We feel it is important to take responsibility for our carbon footprint, being one of the bigger players in the aviation industry. That is why we have a Carbon Reduction Roadmap, a plan that combines the available solutions of today with innovative developments for tomorrow. Our current goal is to reduce the CO₂ per passenger with 20% by 2020 (in comparison to 2011). We are on track: by the end of 2018, we had already reduced our carbon emissions by 17%.

We already started looking beyond 2020. In 2030, we’re aiming for a reduction of 15% of our total CO₂ footprint, compared to 2005.


On top of our own CO₂ reduction investments, we know that our passengers want to play an active role in reducing their environmental footprint. That’s why we’ve initiated a CO₂ compensation service in 2008 called CO2ZERO: with a small contribution you can make your flight CO₂ neutral. By using this service you invest in CO₂ reduction projects with the Gold Standard for the Global Goals label. Besides reducing CO₂, these projects also promote local sustainable development.
