BC-based Harbour Air is the largest all-seaplane company in the world and a champion for action on climate change. Recognizing the impact that aviation has on the climate, Harbour Air was the first airline in North America to achieve carbon neutrality – and the only airline in the world to maintain carbon neutral status for over 14 years. Harbour Air partnered with Ostrom Climate in 2007 to understand their emissions, work to reduce them and offset the balance, making them a global leader in the fight to decrease emissions from aviation.
