Cathay Pacific outlines sustainable development progress
Cathay Pacific Group released its annual Sustainable Development Report showcasing progress in the areas of environmental, social and governance.
It forms the foundation of Cathay’s goal of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
Key highlights in 2021 include becoming one of the first airlines in Asia to target 10% SAF use by 2030.
It is committed to buying more than 350 million gallons of SAF from 2024 alongside oneworld alliance partners.
“We developed Asia’s first major Corporate SAF Programme in 2021, which came to fruition last month, bringing SAF into Hong Kong for uplift for the very first time,” Chief Executive Officer Augustus Tang said.
“We will continue to connect Hong Kong to the world in sustainable ways as recovery accelerates.”
It also co-founded the Aviation Climate Taskforce, an industry platform to accelerate the development of technologies to help drive the decarbonisation.
