NetJets to become the first carbon-neutral jet company in the world.

Until now, if you wanted to offset your CO2 when flying, you could optionally acquire carbon offsets from either the airline or an independent vendor. However, NetJets has announced that all its operations will be carbon neutral for 2012. From October 1st, all of its contracts will include carbon offsets.

There's more: the company claims its current planes, the Hawker 4000 and the Falcon 7X, are the most energy efficient available on the market. The company has also said that its offices will use 10 percent less energy in two year's time and that it's creating an environmental committee to supervise all the initiatives. Finally, they are sponsoring research at Princeton University's aerospace laboratory to develop ultra-low emission jet fuels.
