Product Overview (delete if not applicable):

Product Name: Qantas Group Carbon Offset Program



Product Overview

Product 1: Qantas Airlines Carbon Offset Program

Product 2: Jetstar Airlines Carbon Offset Program

Brief Description

The Qantas Group is a leading airline group committed to environmental sustainability.

The Qantas Group (Qantas Airlines and Jetstar Airlines) launched voluntary carbon offset programs in September 2007. These programs give customers the option to fly carbon neutral whenever they book their flights through qantas.com.au and jetstar.com.au or at any time via qantas.com.au/flycarbonneutral

To lead the way and demonstrate a commitment to this initiative, the Qantas Group carbon offsets all its employee staff ‘duty travel’ flights and ground vehicle tailpipe emissions and has done so since the launch of the program.

The Qantas Group voluntarily pays for all administrative costs associated with the program so that 100% off all customer contributions can be passed on to purchase Australian Government NCOS eligible offset units.

The Qantas Group does not directly profit from this program.

We seek to have the world’s best airline carbon offset program in order to benefit all stakeholders, and are in a process of continuous improvement in this regard.

We welcome feedback: environment@qantas.com.au

2. PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The provision of carbon neutral passenger services by Qantas and Jetstar.

To accurately calculate the volume of emissions of a passenger flying a sector (from one airport to another), both Qantas Airlines and Jetstar Airlines (consisting of Jetstar Australia, Jetstar New Zealand, Jetstar Asia and Jetstar Pacific, but not Jetstar Japan at this time) have undertaken comprehensive life cycle studies of energy usage in flight, such as jet fuel, and on the ground – in catering centres, engineering facilities, airport terminals, offices and our ground transport vehicles. The assessments also include the ‘embodied energy’ during the manufacture of the aircraft flown by the airlines.

The Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs) are updated each financial year. Jetstar have selected emission factors that are geographically specific to the emission sources accounted for in the product LCAs. There are no geographic limitations to the scope of the LCA as Qantas Airlines, Jetstar Airlines and codeshare partners operate globally. The goal of each LCA is to assess the global warming potential attributable to passengers/freight-tonnes on a Qantas Airlines, Jetstar Airlines or codeshare flight in sufficient detail to support an emissions footprint for carbon neutral certification under the NCOS-CN program.

Using data over 12 months and ‘full fuel cycle’ emissions factors published by the Australian Government (National Greenhouse Accounts), the emissions released by aircraft on each flight sector are divided between passengers and freight by weight, are added to the related emissions from ground activities and then divided by the number of passengers/freight-tonnes carried on the sector. This method of calculation provides an estimation of the share of emissions attributable to each passenger on a flight sector.

For customers flying on a Qantas Airlines and Jetstar Airlines codeshare flight, emissions are calculated using the average emissions per kilometre, based on an average of all flights across the Qantas Airlines and Jetstar Airlines networks respectively.

5. EMISSION REDUCTION MEASURES

Emissions Reduction Strategy

The Qantas Group is focused on reducing its carbon emissions. The Group’s comprehensive climate change strategy focuses on improving fuel efficiency through the fleet renewal program, advanced navigational capability, a dedicated fuel optimisation program and commercialising a low-carbon sustainable biofuel for aviation.



Short term Strategy
The Qantas Group has set a fuel efficiency target of 16.5% by 2020 (on 2005 baseline) and is on track to achieve an average fuel efficiency improvement of 1.5% per annum to 2020 which is aligned with the goal set by International Air Transport Association (IATA) for the aviation industry.
Long term Strategy
As a member of IATA, the Qantas Group has endorsed the IATA's stated vision to achieve “carbon neutral growth” by 2020 and to see the airline industry operating with a 50% reduction in annual net emissions by 2050 (on 2005 baseline).

The Qantas Group participates in the Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP), an independent not-for-profit organization working to drive greenhouse gas emissions reduction and sustainable water by surveying emissions performance of major companies across the globe. The three opportunities in the table below are sourced from Qantas’ 2012 CDP response.



Emission Reduction Measures


Fleet Renewal

Fleet renewal is the foundation for the Qantas Group’s fuel optimisation program. Similar to typical new cars compared to old cars, new generation aircraft are more fuel efficient than old generation aircraft. The Qantas Group has $11 billion committed in highly fuel-efficient next generation aircraft (at list prices), such as the Airbus A380 and Boeing 787. The Qantas Group has ten A380s in service, with a further 10 to come, and 50 B787s on order.

During the year, the Group brought 24 new aircraft into service:


  • Qantas and QantasLink – four A380s, one A330-200, five B737-800s, one Bombardier Q400s

  • Jetstar, including Jetstar Asia – two A330-200, ten A320-200s

  • The Group retired three aircraft – one B747-400 and two B737-300s.

More than 235 new aircraft are planned for delivery over the next twelve years. This will enable the retirement of many older aircraft with some types being progressively phased out.





Mobile PCA Units

Reduction in usage of Auxiliary Power Units (APUs) through connecting aircraft to Ground Power Units (GPUs) that use more efficient and less expensive alternative energy sources to aircraft fuel.






Aircraft Weight reduction
Optimising food, drink & catering equipment; carrying lighter equipment on-board; replacing freight containers with lightweight options and improving aircraft weight estimates.

Flight Planning Optimisation

Improving flight planning accuracy to reduce inefficient flight paths, including system and technology optimisation, flight plan delivery and zero fuel weight optimisation, and fuel carriage optimisation.




Advanced Navigational Technology
Continued implementation of advanced navigational on-board technology, enabling procedures such as Required Navigation Performance (RNP), Automatic Dependent Surveillance -- Broadcast (ADS-B), Dynamic Aircraft Route Planning (DARP), tailored arrivals, Constant Descent Arrivals (CDAs) and Electronic Flight Bag (EFB), as well as cruise flight level optimisation.

How we choose our FY2012 carbon offsets


Each of our FY12 carbon offset projects has been screened through a multi-stage ‘filter’ selection process using standards that have been independently developed with the aim to ensure that Qantas and our customers can be confident in their integrity.

Our Carbon Offset Program Commitment


Our commitment is to direct the customer’s contribution towards funding carbon offset projects that are deemed to:

  • Be additional to business as usual

  • Permanently reduce or avoid greenhouse gas emissions

  • Not be double-counted or used to by Qantas to reduce its liability under any carbon compliance regime

  • Contribute to sustainable development and provide social co-benefits wherever possible

  • Be independently verified against a transparent high quality internationally recognised standard

  • Have a real time impact by closely matching the timing of emissions reduction to the actual emissions you're offsetting

Current Offset Projects

Outlined in the table below are some of the FY2012 carbon offset projects that Qantas Group carbon offset program funds helped enable:
