Qantas - - Qnews. -

Aus­tralia is far from be­ing the most pop­u­lous coun­try in the world, yet Qan­tas has be­come the largest car­bon off­set­ter of any air­line on the planet, thanks to the sup­port of its pas­sen­gers. Your do­na­tions, from as lit­tle as 83 cents (if you are fly­ing from Syd­ney to the Gold Coast), go to­wards in­ter­na­tional con­ser­va­tion ef­forts such as con­trol­ling po­ten­tially dev­as­tat­ing wild­fires in Western Aus­tralia’s Kim­ber­ley re­gion or pre­serv­ing rain­for­est in Pa­pua New Guinea. Since the launch of Qan­tas Fu­ture Planet (qan­tas­fu­ture a decade ago, the na­tional car­rier has off­set more than 2.5 mil­lion tonnes of car­bon emis­sions – a feat to cel­e­brate as we ob­serve World En­vi­ron­ment Day in June.
