Carbon offsetting

Carbon offset

Carbon Neutral Freight

Carbon offsetting is a key tool in aviation’s global transition to a low carbon economy and helps us meet our commitments of reaching net zero emissions by 2050. By purchasing carbon offsets, individuals and businesses can reduce their environmental impact in a simple and effective way as funds go directly towards environmental projects that remove greenhouse gas emissions from the atmosphere. 

Since 2007, Qantas has been offsetting its own ground and corporate travel emissions and our popular 'Fly Carbon Neutral' offsetting program for passengers is one of the largest of any airline.

Qantas Freight joins the Carbon Offset program

Great news! From 26 July 2021, Qantas Freight retail customers will be able to choose to offset their carbon emissions on all domestic freight bookings. Simply select the Carbon Neutral Freight option when presented during your booking.  

The Qantas Freight Carbon Offset program is proud to help fund Aboriginal rangers in Arnhem Land undertake traditional fire management.  A collective of nine community-based Aboriginal ranger groups - Bawinanga, Adjumarllari, Jawoyn, Mimal, Yugul, Numbulwar, Warddeken, Yirralka and Arafura - manage an entirely Aborginal-owned cool fire project, which drastically reduces emissions while protecting biodiversity and culturally significant sites from destructive wildfires.

The program is delivered in partnership with Tasman Environmental Markets (TEM), Asia Pacific's largest carbon offset provider. TEM is providing Qantas with its BlueHalo® climate technology which calculates and offsets the emissions associated with a freight shipment. TEM is a certified B Corporation, certified carbon neutral by Climate Active and signatory to the Australian Carbon Industry Code of Conduct. Find out more about TEM here.

From as little as AU$1.00, the Qantas Freight Carbon Offset Program allows our retail customers to take action on climate change by offsetting the carbon emissions from your freight.

Australia Post partnership

In September 2019, Australia Post implemented carbon neutral delivery of every parcel sent through Post Offices and the MyPost system across Australia.

Made possible through Australia Post’s partnership with the Qantas Future Planet program, carbon offsets are procured from reputable Australian and overseas projects to compensate for corporate emissions.

The purchase of carbon offset credits matches the environmental impact of each parcel transferred and delivered through these Australia Post channels.
