#AviaDev Europe – Same old or seeking new and better ways
Which side are you on? Should we as an industry focus on returning back to normal as soon as possible or should we use the pandemic as an opportunity to rebuild our industry and start doing things differently? I´d vote for the latter. One way of doing that is flying (and actually living in general, too) in a more sustainable way. There is a wonderful recipe for that in our newest podcast episode with Andreas Slettvoll, CEO & founder at Norwegian company CHOOOSE. Hope you´ll enjoy our discussion as much as I did and, most importantly, I hope it will inspire you to act now – because every fire extinguisher is important.

Making climate action available for everyone through frictionless and transparent carbon offsetting
Andreas Slettvoll is the CEO & Founder of Chooose, a Norwegian company that delivers solutions in making climate action available for everyone. Solutions include Renewable Energy, Blue Carbon, Community Projects, Trees and Natural Based Solutions and Carbon Removal. Wizz Air has partnered with Chooose so travelers can now offset their carbon footprint using Chooose. In the podcast, Andreas explains carbon offsetting is not the only solution for climate change – it´s just one of several tools that enables us to act now.
During the podcast, two words were deliberately used a lot – “frictionless” and “transparency” as Andreas believes they are crucially important in what Chooose does. Furthermore, Andreas is convinced that shaming is a terrible way for driving change so we definitely shouldn´t be ashamed of flying but take steps to offset our travel.
