THAI Voluntary Carbon Offset
This is an on-going project allowing passenger to participate by off-setting their carbon emission on THAI’s network. The offset is used for investment in the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) and Certified Emission Reductions (CERs) and Voluntary Emission Reductions (VERs) both within and outside Thailand.
THAI joined with IATA in 2010 to embark on project enabling passenger to offset their carbon emission via website which resulted in some 200 tons of carbon being offset, equipment to 4,000 USD per month. THAI worked in coooperation with IATA to give this money to CDM projects which have been certified with CERs For example the Korat waste-to-energy project, biodiversity project in Ratchaburi by Nong Bua Farm and Country Home Village and Braco Norte IV Small Hydro in Brazil.
