Going Carbon Neutral


Majestic Heli Ski SlopesA few weeks a ago, a friend who is an integral part of Majestic Heli Ski, a boutique helicopter skiing company, shared with me that they are now focused on carbon neutrality.

This is to say that they aim to take out of the atmosphere as much carbon dioxide as they put in, achieving a net zero carbon footprint.

What an impressive outlook and an inspiring take on business!

Majestic Heli Ski

“We are committed to minimizing our impact to the environment,” stated Njord Rota, owner of Majestic Heli Ski. Majestic Heli Ski is a boutique helicopter skiing company providing all-inclusive packages to skiers and snowboarders with access to hundreds of thousands acres of vertical slopes in the Chugach Mountains of Alaska. We offer access to hundreds of thousands of acres of pristine mountains.

Partnering with NativeEnergy, Majestic has entered the new business world of carbon neutrality, the first in their industry. Through the purchase of NativeEnergy’s Help Build™ carbon offsets, Majestic will offset 56,000 lbs of CO2 produced by the company’s helicopters and operations. Per the EPA’s Greenhouse Gas Equivalencies Calculator, this is equivalent to avoiding the greenhouse gas emissions of 5.3 cars annually or equivalent to carbon sequestered by 651 tree seedlings grown for 10 years.

NativeEnergy’s Help Build™

NativeEnergy Carbon Credis

NativeEnergy is a provider of carbon offsets, along with renewable energy credits and carbon accounting software. A carbon offset is a reduction in emissions of greenhouse gases in order to offset an emission made elsewhere.

NativeEnergy’s Help Build™ program provides a means for businesses to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by helping build projects that benefit local communities. The focus is on projects that deliver strong environmental and social benefits, like wind farms that provide revenue to local communities and methane digesters that keep family farms in business.

Advantages of NativeEnergy’s Help Build™ carbon offsets:

New Projects  – Play a direct role in funding new projects, including wind, water, farm methane, solar, biomass, and landfill gas.

Social and Environmental Benefits – Support local communities, including schools, municipalities, family farms, and Native American tribes. Help protect watersheds and reduce air pollution.

Community Connections – Participate in the Project Supporter Program. In addition to advertising and public relations opportunities, Project Supporters are often able to visit project sites and collaborate with the communities involved.

How Help Build™ Works

Typically, when someone buys a carbon offset, the money goes to pay for a reduction in greenhouse gases that has already occurred. This purchase supports an existing project. But sometimes community-based projects, like wind turbines at public schools, don’t have enough funding to be built in the first place.

Help Build™ carbon offsets bridge the gap. You purchase carbon offsets from your project in advance—that is, before they occur. By doing so, you play a key role in funding its construction, enabling it to cut greenhouse gas pollution on your behalf for years to come.
