All your questions about carbon offsetting with Qantas answered
How do you know the offset is really happening?
Once carbon offsets are purchased from an accredited project, they are then retired, ensuring the carbon offset cannot be traded again, and completing the carbon offset cycle for the customer. Our Fly Carbon Neutral program is annually certified under the Australian Government’s Climate Active program.
Why can't I choose where my money goes?
To secure a long-term supply of premium carbon offsets at a consistent price, the Qantas Group purchases our offsets from a portfolio of accredited projects. By supporting a portfolio of projects, we’re not only taking action on climate change, but also generating additional environmental and social impact benefits.
Does Qantas profit from customer carbon offsetting?
Our Fly Carbon Neutral program is a not for profit initiative. All customer and Qantas’ dollar matching contributions are used to fund verified carbon offsets projects.
