To further Jackson Hole Airport's effort to becoming net zero, the board committed to purchasing carbon offsets for all board vehicle and employee commuting miles as well as mileage from the airport's operational vehicles.
The offsets will be purchased through the Good Traveler Program at rate of $2 per 400 miles driven.
The money will go to certified projects through the Rocky Mountain Institute, the Colorado nonprofit that manages the Good Traveler Program.
"Jackson Hole Airport's operational vehicles, including all snow removal equipment, are part of this effort," a press release said. "The Airport's vehicles have been recognized as a 'Green Fleet' by Yellowstone-Teton Clean Cities, and this next step will bring all vehicles to a net-zero for carbon emissions."
Air travelers flying in and out of the airport can also purchase offsets through the Good Traveler Program.
"We use your money to pay for carbon offsets, which are projects that are certified to offset the impact of air or road travel by keeping greenhouse gases out of the atmosphere somewhere else, while doing some extra good like restoring wetlands or growing forests," the Good Traveler Program's website reads.
The Rocky Mountain Institute's mission is "to transform global energy use to create a clean, prosperous, and low-carbon future."
Airports around the world are trying to move toward net zero. They're reducing their power consumption, buying "green" power, stocking their fleets with electric and alternative-fuel vehicles, and using carbon offsets.
