Our commitment to minimising the impact we have on the environment at every step – in the air and on the ground.
Managing climate risk
Qantas recognises human-induced climate change as a significant issue for the aviation industry. We support the world-wide priority of limiting global temperature rise to below two degrees above pre-industrial levels. Aviation has been at the forefront of the global business response to climate change, becoming the first industry to voluntarily commit to emissions targets out as far as 2050. We're playing an active role in setting and meeting these ambitious targets and we’re guided by a simple philosophy to meet them: measure, reduce, offset and influence. In line with this, the Qantas Group committed in 2017 to align our climate change-related disclosures to the recommendations of the Taskforce on Climate-related Financial Disclosures (TCFD). Since then, the Group has been working to implement these across the core elements of climate-related disclosures: governance, strategy, risk management, and metrics and targets. Over this past year, the Group partnered with external consultants and climate change experts to further understand the physical and transition risks as well as emerging opportunities that may arise from a changing climate.
