ITPS Canada enters into partnership with LivClean for 100% carbon neutral goal

International Test Pilots School (ITPS) Canada announced to achieve 100% carbon neutral.  To help achieve this the company has partnered with LivClean, a top-ranked carbon offset retailer. Through the partnership, ITPS’s carbon offset purchase will support the Great Bear Forest Carbon Project, located inside the traditional territories of the Haida Nation, British Columbia, Canada, and home to the largest remaining intact coastal temperate rainforest in the world.

Forests play an important role in the fight against rising CO2 levels. Protecting mature-growth forests aids the fight in two important ways. It preserves the carbon already stored in the mature trees, plus it continues capturing even more carbon as the trees continue to grow. By supporting the Great Bear Forest Carbon Project, ITPS is offsetting the equivalent of planting and protecting approximately 20,000 trees. ITPS already offset 25% of its 2021 emissions, and now is committed to being 100% carbon neutral for 2022 and beyond.

Beyond the carbon benefits, the Great Bear Forest Carbon Project supported by ITPS, protects the western red cedar, which is known as the “Tree of Life,” and important habitats for the Kermode bear, black and grizzly bears, and seacoast wolves. The project also preserves habitats for coastal and freshwater marine life.

The Great Bear Forest Carbon Project and the ITPS offset purchase is tracked on the BC Forest Carbon Offset third-party public carbon-reduction registry and meet all eight of the Carbon Offset Credit Integrity Assessment Criteria identified by ICAO’s Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA).

ITPS embraces the need for test pilot flight training to be environmentally sustainable and plans to deliver the most sustainable training in the industry through the increased use of simulator training and partnering with a sustainable aviation fuel research project at the University of Waterloo, Ontario. LivClean Carbon Offsets is a top-ranked 100% Canada-owned carbon offset retailer dedicated to the responsible business movement.
