Our commitment to sustainability

Qantas Annual Report 2016

Reducing our use of resources is a huge focus for Qantas Future Planet. That's why we've set ourselves a target to achieve a 20% reduction in water use by 2020. We're going further too, targeting a reduction in waste-to-landfill of 30% and a 35% reduction in electricity by 2030.

Beyond 2030, we're targeting 'carbon neutral growth' and aiming to reduce net emissions by 50% by 2050, compared to 2005 levels. This commitment endorses the industry position set by the International Aviation Transport Association (IATA), of which the Qantas Group is a member.

Emission reduction goals

To demonstrate the real difference our sustainability efforts are making, we're investing in a number of initiatives that help us measure and report our progress. Not only will this help us demonstrate leadership and build confidence among our customers, investors, and business and government partners, but it will also help us identify the initiatives that are most worth investing in over years to come.
