Spain, November 29, 2016

Airlines now have new rules to follow for managing and offsetting their emissions.

Vertis, an environmental commodities trader, hosted a fascinating workshop in Spain with leading airlines to discuss and debate these upcoming changes. Jessica Verhagen, the Ecosphere+ VP of Business Development and Strategy, hosted a presentation on the important role tropical forests can play in helping airlines comply with these new rules.

Jessica showed how these powerful, natural resources work to reduce the effects of climate change and deliver a variety of services to the environment, the animals and people.  She talked about how carbon assets and off-setting play an important role in helping businesses reduce their impact on the environment.
