There is no doubt that the sport of skydiving has an impact on the environment. Many of our customers and staff have expressed a desire to do something to offset that impact.
Though we are not yet ready to go 100% carbon neutral we have started to take the first steps toward it.
This year (2008) we have purchase carbon credits to offset all of the work related driving of our staff. We are also managing a program that allows customers to make voluntary contributions at each repack cycles to offset 1500lbs of carbon.
With the help of the UNLV environmental science department we are hoping arrive at a figure that represents the environmental impact of one skydive. This information will allow all of use to get a real grip on our ecological footprint and allow us to take steps toward mitigate it.
