Abstract [sv]

I denna uppsats har klimatkompensationer inom flygindustrin studerats ur ett kundperspektiv samt ett företags perspektiv. Genom en enkätundersökning med flygresenärer samt kvalitativa intervjuer med aktörer från branschen har klimatkompensationer och problematiken kring dessa studerats. Klimatkompensera är något en person eller företag kan göra för att kompensera för de miljöutsläpp orsakade av en flygresa. Resultatet av studien visar att ett stort antal resenärer anser sig ha god kunskap om flygets påverkan på miljön men majoriteten väljer ändå att inte klimatkompensera. Attityderna kring flygets påverkan på miljön och handlingarna kopplade till dem skapar en dissonans. Denna dissonans skapar obehag och skuldkänslor som resenärerna försöker minska genom att motivera sitt handlande på den bristande informationen kring hur man klimatkompenserar samt att de inte litar på företagen som erbjuder klimatkompensationer. Den bristande information som privata resenärer upplever beror på att företag väljer att fokusera sina ansträngningar mot business to business. De ser en högre lönsamhet i att fokusera på företag och koncentrerar sig då inte på att underlätta för privata resenärer att kompensera för deras enskilda resor. Detta skapar ett behov hos privata resenärer

Abstract [en]

In this paper, carbon offset in the aviation industry has been studied from a customer perspective and a corporate perspective. Through a survey of air passengers as well as qualitative interviews with industry actors, climate compensation and the surrounding problems have been studied. Climate compensation is something a person or company can do to compensate for the environmental emissions caused by a flight. The result of the study shows that a large number of travelers consider themselves well aware of the environmental impact of the aviation industry but the majority still choose not to compensate for the emissions caused. Attitudes towards the emissions caused by flying and its impact on the environment and the associated actions create a dissonance. This dissonance creates discomfort and guilt, that travelers try to reduce by motivate their action through the lack of information on how to compensate their emissions and that they do not trust the companies that offer climate compensation. The lack of information that the private travelers experience is due to the company's focus towards business to business operations. They see a higher profitability by concentrating their efforts towards other companies and this creates a lack in suitable tools for private customers to use while booking, and wanting to compensate for their plane ticket.
