Learn how we continue to contribute to a low carbon economy with our integrated approach.
Qantas has been offsetting carbon pollution for more than a decade - with our 'tick-the-box' to Fly Carbon Neutral offsetting program being one of the largest of any airline. Carbon offsetting is a key tool in aviation’s global transition to a low carbon economy, and in meeting our commitments of capping emissions at 2019 levels and reaching net zero emissions by 2050.
Since 2007, Qantas has offset its own ground and corporate travel emissions.
In 2019, we launched the biggest changes to the Fly Carbon Neutral program since its inception a decade ago. Qantas Frequent Flyer members and Qantas Business Rewards customers now earn 10 Qantas Points for every dollar spent on offsetting, and Qantas is matching dollar for dollar every contribution a customer makes to offset their emissions on a passenger flight, effectively doubling the program.
Our carbon offset portfolio also reflects the strategic priorities of Qantas Group. This includes our commitment to support Indigenous economic development through our Reconciliation Action Plan, by supporting the employment of Indigenous rangers in northern Australia, who use traditional practices to promote the regeneration of native vegetation.
Since 2014, we've been partnering with other leading businesses to offset carbon emissions through our B2B Qantas Future Planet program. Our Future Planet program provides a carbon offsetting solution for corporate businesses wanting to offset their operational or unavoidable emissions to reduce their environmental impact. We have built a network of sustainability leaders inspiring new ideas through collaborative innovation and action.
Through our Future Planet program we have offset emissions for more than 40 businesses since inception, including Australia Post, DHL, T2, Allens Linklaters and KFC.
If you're a business interested in partnering with us and working together to build on sustainability between our brands, email us.
In September 2019, Australia Post implemented carbon neutral delivery of every parcel sent through Post Offices and the MyPost system across Australia. This significant announcement was made possible through Australia Post’s partnership with the Qantas Future Planet program, which procures carbon offsets from reputable Australian and overseas projects, to compensate for corporate emissions. The purchase of carbon offset credits now matches the environmental impact of each parcel transferred and delivered through these Australia Post channels.
