Singapore Airlines Group targets net-zero emissions by 2050

Singapore Airlines Group has joined rivals in pledging to meet net zero carbon emissions by 2050.

It reinforces its long-standing strategy of working towards decarbonisation and environmental sustainability across its operations.

The Group's airlines, Singapore Airlines, Scoot and SIA Cargo, will invest in new-generation aircraft, adopt low-carbon tech such as sustainable aviation fuels, and source for high quality carbon offsets.

It has made progress across several areas including installing solar panels on all of its office buildings in Singapore.

In-flight meals feature sustainable paper packaging and bamboo cutlery, reducing the amount of single-use plastics in the cabin.

Goh Choon Phong, Chief Executive Officer, Singapore Airlines, said: "We have remained focused on our sustainability goals even as we navigated the Covid-19 pandemic. We know that this is also an increasingly important issue to both our customers and staff."

It plans to become net-zero by bringing on-line new-generation fuel-efficient aircraft such as Airbus' A350-900 and A320neo Family jets.

Singapore Airlines has been an active member of the Sustainable Aviation Fuel Users Group (SAFUG) since 2011.

In 2017, SIA launched a series of green package flights from San Francisco to Singapore that incorporated sustainable aviation fuels, fuel-efficient aircraft and optimised air traffic management measures.

In 2020, SIA worked with Stockholm's Swedavia Airport to uplift sustainable aviation fuels on flights departing from the city.

It will also continue to enhance its carbon offsetting programme.
