A great way to fly
The Singapore Airlines (SIA) Group has launched a voluntary carbon offset programme, which enables customers across its passenger and cargo airlines to offset their own carbon emissions via dedicated microsites.
TEM is supporting SIA in the launch of its carbon offset programme through the provision of our BlueHalo® climate technology which calculates and offsets the emissions associated with a customer’s journey. Through dedicated microsites, Singapore Airlines and Scoot customers are able to purchase carbon offsets at any time before or after a flight. SIA and Scoot will also match the offsets that these customers purchase for the first six months from the launch of this programme. SIA Cargo customers can also offset their emissions through a dedicated microsite. Corporate customers will be able to participate in the programme from the fourth quarter of 2021.
SIA customers will be able to use their Krisflyer miles and HighFlyer points to offset their carbon emissions from the fourth quarter of 2021. All contributions directly support verified carbon offset projects including the protection of native forests in Indonesia, renewable solar energy in India and efficient, clean burning cookstoves for rural families in Nepal.
Customers can offset their emissions via the following websites:
- Singapore Passengers: carbonoffset.singaporeair.com.sg
- Scoot Passengers: carbonoffset.flyscoot.com
- Singapore Cargo: carbonoffset.siacargo.com
The SIA Group’s carbon offset programme is another step in enhancing the SIA Group’s ongoing sustainability journey. In May 2021, the SIA Group committed to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050. This will be achieved by investments in new-generation aircraft, achieving higher operational efficiency, adopting low-carbon technology such as sustainable aviation fuels, and sourcing for high quality carbon offsets.
By connecting SIA’s customers with BlueHalo®, TEM is empowering travellers to take action on climate change and deliver life-changing benefits to rural communities across Asia.
“Through the SIA Group’s voluntary carbon offset programme, our customers now have an opportunity to offset their emissions through accredited projects that provide clear benefits to people and the planet. Matching their offsets is our way of encouraging our customers to fly carbon neutral.”
