Cathay Pacific Developing Carbon Offset Program

by | Apr 3, 2007

Cathay Pacific Airways is developing a program that will offset emissions associated with Cathay Pacific staff travelling on official airline business and also provide passengers with the voluntary option of joining the offset program.

Chief Executive Philip Chen  announced the development during a keynote speech delivered at the Greener Skies Forum 2007.

In his address, Mr Chen said, “While aviation is increasingly being viewed as one of the biggest contributors of carbon emissions, that is simply not the case. The contribution the industry makes to man-made carbon dioxide emissions worldwide is estimated at 2 percent.”
