Cathay Pacific and Singapore Airlines have inked a Memorandum of Understanding to collaborate on a broad range of sustainability initiatives.

These joint efforts are aimed at advocating for sustainable aviation fuel use in the Asia-Pacific region, a critical decarbonisation lever for the sector.

They will work to share best practices to boost sustainability performance.

The MoU was signed by Cathay Group CEO Ronald Lam and Singapore Airlines CEO Mr Goh Choon Phong, both in Dubai for the recent IATA Annual General Meeting .

The agreement focuses on a collective commitment to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050, and to drive sustainability changes.

Firstly, Cathay and SIA will jointly advocate for the greater use of SAF in the Asia-Pacific region.

This will include raising public awareness about SAF’s role in decarbonising aviation

The airlines will also explore potential opportunities for joint procurement of SAF at selected locations.

These are aimed at boosting SAF production.

The second area of focus will be the exchange of best practices to reduce single-use plastics, minimise waste, and improve energy efficiency in ground and cargo operations.

Cathay CEO Ronald Lam said: “Our collaboration aims to accelerate and support the development of the SAF supply chain in the region.”

“We are undertaking a multi-pronged approach to contribute to the aviation industry’s transition.”
