Singapore Airlines rolls out voluntary carbon offset programme

The Singapore Airlines (SIA) Group has launched a voluntary carbon offset programme, which will enable customers to offset their own carbon emissions via dedicated microsites for its two airline brands.

Singapore Airlines and Scoot customers will be able to offset carbon emissions on the respective airline microsites 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..

The voluntary carbon offset programme will later be upgraded to allow customers to use their KrisFlyer miles and HighFlyer points to offset carbon emissions from the fourth quarter of 2021.

The offsets will be provided via the BlueHalo digital solution, which has been developed by Australia-based Tasman Environmental Markets (TEM).

It allows customers to immediately calculate and offset the emissions associated with their journey.

Lee Wen Fen, Senior Vice President Corporate Planning, Singapore Airlines, said: "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."

Customers may offset their carbon emissions via the following websites: https://carbonoffset.singaporeair.com and https://carbonoffset.flyscoot.com
