Environment and Sustainability

AerCap is committed to responsible and sustainable business practices from reducing environmental impact in our offices worldwide to incorporating new, modern technology aircraft into our fleet, while disposing of older aircraft. This has a positive impact on the environment, as these new technology aircraft generate significantly less pollution than older aircraft and engines.

Our commitment to responsible and sustainable business practices

As part of AerCap’s commitment to responsible and sustainable business practices, we have partnered with First Climate to partially offset our carbon footprint arising from our global office operations and employee business travel in 2019. This initiative benefits a project in Ningxia, China, where solar power is used as an alternative source of energy to generate clean energy. The renewable energy project is certified under the Gold Standard.
