TD breaking news – Qantas sets ambitious targets in new Climate Action Plan

Airline looks to net zero for 2050, with interim target to reduce emissions by 25% by 2030.

Qantas CEO Alan Joyce has just released the Qantas Group Climate Action Plan which makes “sustainability a key pillar of decision making across all areas of the business”.

As well as taking steps to achieve net zero emissions by 2050, the carrier is targeting reductions in its environmental footprint by introducing 10% use of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) by 2030, and approximately 60% by 2050.

Waste reduction initiatives would see zero single-use plastics by 2027 and zero general waste (excluding quarantine waste) to landfill by 2030.

The carrier will sign a Memorandum of Understanding with ANZ and INPEX for a major integrated reforestation and carbon farming project in Western Australia, which will see marginal farming land replanted with sustainable, drought-resistant native plants to improve the environment and generate Australian carbon credits to help offset future carbon footprints.
