Section 3 – Functions of GruenerFliegen

  1. GruenerFliegen is a flight search engine that allows users to search for a flight by taking into account its environmental impact and thus give  the possibility to reduce their CO2 footprint. The standard of GruenerFliegen includes a transparent display of emissions per flight and display and calculation of the total price. The total price includes the ticket price and the cost of compensation for emissions (so-called offset).
  2. Environmental Data. GruenerFliegen links climate impact data of specific flight routes with flight connections worldwide and thus determines the ecological footprint of all flight offers. The data on aircraft types, engines, flight routes and much more were generated in scientific research projects by the non-profit organisation atmosfair and verified by the Federal Environment Agency in Berlin. The data supporting the calculations are stored and updated in the atmosfair database for all routes worldwide.  GruenerFlying  pays atmosfair for the use of this data.

Only flight offers provided to GruenerFliegen by one of its partners are indicated. GruenerFliegen can receive a commission if a user books a flight with a partner or is redirected to a partner’s travel offer. This commission is used to partially cover administrative costs.
