The contributions to myclimate are tax deductible in Switzerland and Germany. Further information on myclimate is available at https://www.myclimate.org/information/about-us/donations-and-payment-information/tax-write-offs/
In such cases, the payment that you have made can be used for your next flight; however, unfortunately we are unable to refund payments once they have been made.
If this is the case, please contact myclimate – The Climate Protection Partnership.
Yes, the emissions calculator is merely there for orientation purposes to determine the scale of the donation. You may determine the actual amount of the offset payment yourself.
In order to be able to cover the administrative costs and charges, it is necessary to charge an additional fee for smaller contributions. The attempt to cover these costs with the higher contributions would constitute a risk for myclimate as a non-profit organization, as it would no longer be possible to entirely cover all the costs if the smaller contributions became very common and exceeded a certain threshold.
No, only CO2 emissions are included in the Lufthansa calculator. This is because science only offers absolutely clear answers in respect of the impact on the climate of CO2 emissions (see also The CO2 emissions calculator ). However, after calculating the CO2 emissions each customer has the option of varying the payment by clicking on "Contribute another amount".
The factor is 3.15, i.e. one tonne of kerosene produces 3.15 tonnes of CO2 during combustion.
CO2 accounts for the largest percentage of the greenhouse gases produced by mankind. It is also a gas with a long life and remains for up to 100 years in the atmosphere. During this period, it exercises a greenhouse gas effect.
