Qantas has been offsetting carbon pollution for more than a decade. Our offsetting program is the largest of any airline, with a Qantas customer offsetting their flight every 59 seconds.

And through Qantas Future Planet, we’re partnering with leading businesses to offset their carbon emissions, leveraging the internal capability we have built through our own program.

Each year, Qantas Future Planet produces a study of Australian behaviours and attitudes towards sustainable goods and services. As a long-term partner of CMI, we are proud to share the 2019 findings here.

The study identified that over three quarters of consumers said that they were “very aware of environmental issues,” and the breadth of issues of concern was wide – more than two thirds identified plastic waste (87%), air pollution (77%), water pollution (78%), species extinction (78%) and extreme weather as concerns.

There was a strong view that multiple actors have a collective responsibility (and ability) to tackle climate change and environment issues. Two in three people said their individual impact on the environment was top-of-mind, and 88% said that we can all do something to reduce the impacts of climate change.  When it comes to the role of business, it’s clear that people expect businesses to act. As the view that government is not doing enough to tackle climate change grew, the view that businesses have a key role to play remained strong. This was stable among non-offsetters (83%), and grew slightly among offsetters (93%).
