What is Carbon Footprint?

Carbon Footprint is a measure of the impact our activities have on the environment. Global warming and climate change are directly a result of an increase in fuel consumption and subsequent release of Carbon Dioxide (CO2) in the air.

Approximately 225 kgs of CO2 is emitted for about 1200-1500 kms of air distance.

To help reduce your Carbon Footprint when you fly, a small donation you make to Seva Mandir, an NGO that works in the field of afforestation in Rajasthan, will lead to more trees being planted. For every tree planted, more that 20 kgs of CO2 is absorbed yearly. MakeMyTrip will collect your donation amount and forward it to the NGO GiveIndia for further processing.

We encourage you to be a responsible traveller and help save the environment and safeguard your future.

To contribute, follow these steps:

  1. After selecting your Domestic or International flight, the Review page will display an option for Reduce your Carbon Footprint. To make a donation, select your chosen amount and trees you would like to plant.
  2. The donation amount of Rs. 44 on Domestic flights and Rs. 220 on International flights is pre-selected. However, you may choose to make a higher donation and plant more trees. Your donation amount is TAX FREE and will be added to the total amount that will be charged on your card. From your total donation, 9.1% of the amount will be given to GiveIndia.
  3. Privacy Notice: MakeMyTrip will share your name, e-mail address, the date and amount of your donation with GiveIndia. GiveIndia will provide send you a 80G tax exemption receipt after one month of making your contribution.

What People are Saying

  • This is great. I, like so many others I know, want to do something for the environment but we don't know where to start. It's a great idea teaming up with MakeMyTrip who are a trustworthy company. I wish you all well and will continue to donate and spread the word to people who want to help. Jai Hind!
  • It's nice that the tree planting information is clubbed with air ticket booking. The way the initiative is presented is really good. I would like to participate more in such green initiatives even while I am not booking air tickets.
  • It's a great beginning.
  • Carry on the good work, would also like to contribute towards water conservation and watershed programmes
  • I deal with GiveIndia because I trust them and will always try to help for Clean India / Green India.
  • It is a great initiative and any step towards saving our planet from destruction is welcome.
  • You people are doing a great job. I would love it to be implemented for all kinds of transport involved and the message to be spread throughout. I wish you all success.
  • Planting trees is one great way to save our Environment. However other initiatives to make our Environment will also be encouraging and I will be willing to donate on that front as well.
  • I think it's great that some organizations are taking initiative to protect the Indian environment.
  • That's a great program.
  • I think this is a fantastic initiative. To be honest, I was getting a better price through a different site. However, 'The Carbon Reduction' initiative just swung it back in your favor.
  • I think this is an excellent initiative by GiveIndia and this should infact be made compulsory by the Government. Before this I would feel bad about my carbon footprint and would only feel guilty but this idea now helps me somewhat make up for the loss.
  • Also, it is something so good that I have recommended all my friends to donate and plant trees every time they fly and make sure they book their tickets with MakeMyTrip. It is very highly appreciated and please keep up the good work and let me know if I can help in any way possible.
  • Just hope more people take up the initiative to pay the amount.
  • Don't care for a tree today; remain prepared for unknown and costly diseases tomorrow. Save a tree today, give yourself and others a healthier planet to live in tomorrow.
  • I congratulate the institutions & the initiative that intends to challenge the greatest enemy of today's natural environment.
