Virgin Australia has again received carbon neutral certification approval for its new carbon offset program through the government’s National Carbon Offset Standard (NCOS).

“We are very pleased to receive Australian government approval through the National Carbon Offset Standard as it means our guests can continue to have confidence that their flights are offset with genuine carbon abatement”, Virgin Australia corporate advisory group executive Merren McArthur said.

Carbon offsets used from the program will go towards NCOS approved carbon neutral projects, including a renewable energy biogas project in Thailand and a fuel-wood saving project in Cambodia.
