The SIA Group has announced its commitment to achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050.
Starting 25 June, Singapore Airlines and Scoot customers will be able to offset carbon emissions on the respective airline microsites before or after a flight, while corporate customers will be able to do so from 4Q 2021.
Customers can also choose to use their KrisFlyer miles and HighFlyer points to offset their carbon emissions from 4Q later this year.
Both airlines will also match the offsets that passengers purchase for the first six months from the launch of this programme.
All these offsets can be easily calculated and activated by the BlueHalo digital solution, developed by Australia-based Tasman Environmental Markets.
Some curated carbon offset projects include protecting forests in Indonesia, supporting renewable solar energy projects in India, and providing clean burning cookstoves for rural families in Nepal.
