Lower GHG emission goals lead to reduced energy use, costs
Through 2014, Caterpillar has reduced GHG emissions intensity from our facilities by 38 percent compared to our 2006 base year. Multiple energy management projects have contributed to our success in reducing the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions of our facilities around the world. Working to achieve our goal of fewer GHG emissions usually leads to ways we can also reduce our energy use and associated costs, with multiple benefits to Caterpillar and the environment.
We try to reduce GHG emissions from our daily operation, but we aren't able to completely eliminate them – no airline can with current technology. In the meantime, we're making use of carbon offsets. In celebration of Earth Month, JetBlue is proud to offset all CO2e emissions from scheduled flights from April 1-30, 2015.
