Blackcomb introduces 1st 100% carbon neutral full service helicopter operator

Canada-based Blackcomb Helicopters has announced it has offset 100% of its carbon footprint with 22 aircraft and 6 base locations that offset the entirety of its business, including employee commutes, facility emissions, waste and fuel-burn, the company said.

Blackcomb Helicopters chose to offset with Offsetters, a Canadian carbon management company. By contributing to the Quadra Island Forestland Conservation Project, we support a local project that sequesters the equivalent amount of greenhouse gases that we emit – thus neutralizing the climate impact of our flights.

Blackcomb Helicopters (BH), a McLean Group company, is a civil and utility services provider in southwestern British Columbia, and nationwide as required. BH is known for its safety record and operational expertise in support of local search and rescue organizations, wildfire suppression agencies, medical evacuations, avalanche control, the construction and maintenance of utility infrastructure such as hydro-electric power, and resource development such as forestry and mining. These helicopters are an essential mountain access tool for the rugged terrain of Western Canada.
