Qantas announces to reduce carbon emissions to zero by 2050

Published on : Monday, November 11, 2019

 Qantas has come up with the industry’s ‘most ambitious’ plan to cut down the environmental impact of flying.

 

 

By 2050 the airline intends to slash its net carbon emissions to zero. Qantas announcement comes at a time of growing scrutiny of the airline industry’s carbon footprint and pressure on travellers to go for more environmental friendly modes of transport.

 

 

Through fuel efficiency and carbon offset scheme Qantas would achieve 2050 target.

 

 

In emission from domestic and international operations across Qantas, Jetstar, Qantas Link and Qantas Freight, from 2020 the airline will cap its net emission at about 12 million tonnes and offset all growths.

 

The company will also match every dollar spent by Qantas and Jetstar passengers who tick a box to fly carbon neutral when they book flights.

 

 

Qantas mentioned that from today they were effectively doubling their carbon offsetting program from today and the net emissions across Qantas and Jetstar was being capped from 2020 so that all new flying will be carbon neutral.

 

 

Over 10 years, Qantas will be investing $50 million to help develop sustainable fuel which will help in reduction of carbon emission by 80 per cent. It currently costs about twice the price of traditional jet fuel.

 

 

The Air Transport Action Group mentioned that the commercial flying accounts for about 2 per cent of global carbon emissions and 12 per cent of transport emissions.
