Singapore Airlines aims for carbon neutrality by 2050

The airline said the move reinforced a long-standing strategy of working towards decarbonisation and environmental sustainability 

The Singapore Airlines (SIA) Group has announced its commitment to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050.

The airlines – Singapore Airlines, Scoot and SIA Cargo – will use multiple levers to achieve this goal. These include investing in new-generation aircraft, achieving higher operational efficiency, adopting low-carbon technology, such as sustainable aviation fuels and sourcing high-quality carbon offsets.

The group completed the installation of solar panels on all of its office buildings in Singapore. The panels provide up to 18% of its electricity demand – enough to power around 2,300 four-room apartments in Singapore for a year.

Singapore Airlines chief executive Goh Choon Phong commented: “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. With this pledge to achieve net-zero emissions, we buttress the SIA Group’s leadership position on this topic and reinforce our commitment to finding ways to tackle our impact on the environment.”
