Sentinel Aviation commits to defining a long term sustainable future for the private aviation sector. We aim to be fully carbon neutral across our entire business by 2025 – reducing climate impact of our flying.
Our carbon emissions calculator determines the carbon footprint of your flight as well as the number of carbon credits needed to balance emissions.
Sentinel Aviation is partnered with Pelorus Foundation, supporting their Climate Investment Fund which funds grassroots projects that balance carbon emissions. Our contributions to this fund demonstrate just one of our actions and commitment towards a future of sustainable travel.
The Climate Investment Fund is a bespoke portfolio comprised of some of the world’s leading carbon removal solutions: technology driven blue carbon, forestation, soil carbon sequestration and enhanced rock weathering. Working with nomadic herders in Mongolia, subsistence farmers in Timor-Leste and Indonesia, coastal communities in Iceland and British famers, the fund supports those on the front line of the climate crisis, whilst investing in pioneering carbon removal markets.
By their nature, all carbon credit projects have strengths and weaknesses, which is why the Climate Investment Fund invests in both nature and hybrid technology projects. This enables a strong and adaptable approach to climate action, as well as encouraging the transition to more permanent carbon storage at a price that’s affordable.
When you fly with Sentinel Aviation, you have the opportunity to balance your carbon emissions through Pelorus Foundation’s Climate Investment Fund.
Carbon removal is the process of removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and locking it away for decades, centuries, or millennia. Both natural, technological and hybrid strategies exist to remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, which is then stored through various means, such as in plants, trees and soils, underground reservoirs, rocks and the ocean.
Emission Neutral looks beyond carbon offsetting and offsets other aviation emissions, including water vapour, aerosols and nitrous oxide – which account for 2/3 of the emissions produced when flying.
The terms “carbon offset” and “carbon removal” are often confused. But carbon offsets don’t traditionally remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, rather you are paying to avoid emissions elsewhere by building a wind farm or evading deforestation. That’s the crux of why the Climate Investment Fund is different, by investing in the minority of carbon credits that actually remove carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, clients will be supporting the future of climate investment strategies.
Currently, three out of the five Climate Investment projects are verified by Plan Vivo Foundation, a standard that supports communities and smallholders on the forefront of the climate crisis – principally in the developing world.

While offsetting reduces carbon footprint indirectly, using sustainable aviation fuel (SAF), which has a lower carbon intensity, significantly and directly reduces these GHG’s emissions – in its neat form, SAF’s use can reduce total lifecycle CO2 emissions by over 85% compared to conventional jet fuel.
SAF is a liquid and clean substitute for fossil jet fuel, produced from sustainable resources like waste oils and agricultural residues.
The Global 7500 is the first business jet to receive an Environmental Product Declaration (EPD). High-speed transonic wings cut down on drag, reducing fuel burn and emissions while its GE Passport Engines have a reduced fuel consumption of approximately 2.5 litres per functional unit.
