LGB participates in The Good Traveler, a program to voluntarily offset the environmental impact of your travel through the purchase of carbon offsets. Your purchases fund projects that permanently remove climate-changing emissions from the atmosphere.
The program’s website at www.thegoodtraveler.org assists you in estimating your travel-related emissions and offsetting all, or a portion, of each trip you take.
The offsets are sourced predominantly from carbon reduction projects throughout the United States and verified through a rigorous standard. The Good Traveler was created by San Diego International Airport, and is managed by the nonprofit Rocky Mountain Institute.
Please visit The Good Traveler website to learn more and offset the impact of your travel.
Participation in The Good Traveler program is part of LGB’s efforts to become an industry leader in environmental sustainability. In 2018, the Long Beach City Council unanimously approved an item, sponsored by Mayor Robert Garcia and Councilwoman Stacy Mungo, that requested that the City develop a plan to lead the nation on sustainability for airports and to work with airlines serving LGB and other partners to become an incubator of clean tech in aviation, with the goal of becoming a carbon-neutral facility.

This partnership with The Good Traveler is thanks in part to a suggestion from the Sustainability Committee of the Airport Advisory Commission.
