At Cathay Pacific Group, we take our environmental and social responsibilities seriously. To achieve more sustainable aviation, we actively mitigate our impact on climate change by investing in buying more efficient aircrafts and biofuels. To be part of the solution, we invite customers to use Fly Greener, our carbon offset programme, to make greener choices while you travel.
What is Fly Greener?
The logic behind Fly Greener is simple: it helps make sure the CO2 generated from air travel is reduced elsewhere. Through Fly Greener, customers are offered the opportunity to purchase "carbon offsets" that come from projects that reduce or prevent CO2 emissions, such as those focused on renewable energy.
Based on carbon emissions calculated for the specified flights, the attributable monetary contributions go directly to fund third-party validated projects that help to offset the CO2 generated by those flights.
All of the projects we offer are certified under the Gold Standard to ensure that they are verifiable, credible and make a difference to local communities and the environment.
