Climate Positive Delivery

Terms and Conditions

1. Your payment for your Climate Positive Delivery will include a Goods and Services Tax (GST) component which will not be allocated towards carbon offset projects.

2. You can purchase with cash or with Qantas Points. The points required will vary. There is no GST component if you use Qantas Points.

3. When ordering a Climate Positive Delivery, you're allowing Qantas to purchase a carbon offset which contributes to a verified carbon project. Unfortunately if you choose to pay for an offset but change your mind, we're unable to offer a refund.

4. Qantas will provide you with a tax invoice by email when you purchase a Climate Positive Delivery.  We will not provide duplicate tax invoices. The transaction will also be recorded in your monthly Qantas Frequent Flyer statement as a climate positive delivery.

5. All Qantas Marketplace deliveries have been offset by Qantas (Qantas Marketplace Delivery Offset), i.e. Qantas Marketplace deliveries are Carbon Neutral. The calculation method used for the Qantas Marketplace Delivery Offset provides an estimate of the emissions associated with your delivery only and should not be relied upon as an accurate record of the actual emissions. We accept no liability if the calculation of greenhouse gas emissions relating to the offset of your Qantas Marketplace delivery is incorrect or inaccurately reflects actual greenhouse gas emissions attributable to the emissions associated with your delivery. See methodology below.

Eligible Offset Units acquired will be held and retired by Qantas, and are not transferable to you. We may at our absolute discretion acquire 'Eligible Offset Units' from certified greenhouse gas abatement suppliers of our choice. You are not able to direct us to allocate the funds to any particular greenhouse gas abatement projects or suppliers.

8. Your purchase of the carbon offset through the Climate Positive Delivery product will be formally retired on behalf of Qantas. However, this will not contribute towards Qantas’ carbon emissions targets or compliance obligations.
