Flights

The GNF tries to avoid flights if possible. But in the domain of international co-operation, it is consistently required to be personally present. Since 2007, the GNF balances the flights of all staff members and board of directors by paying yearly for the caused greenhouse gas emissions to atmosfair (for the years 2007 and 2008) and since 2009 to myclimate. All flight miles, accumulated over the year and the corresponding CO2 emissions were taken into account. The money will be invested in climate protection projects, which myclimate selects according to strict criteria.
