Denver Considers Carbon Offset Kiosks At DIA
Greenprint Denver, a panel of environmental experts put together by the Mayor, is targeting Denver International Airport as a means of reaching the city’s goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 10 percent per capita by 2012, USA Today reports.
The panel envisions establishing kiosks at the airport where travelers can pay for carbon offsets. Alternatively, the airport might work with airlines to allow air travelers to pay voluntary “offset” fees when they purchase tickets.
The panel estimates that a fee of $2.50 to offset 1,000 miles of air travel would help the city reach its reduction goals.
