First and foremost, Cathay Pacific and Singapore Airlines will jointly drive increased use of SAF in the Asia-Pacific region. Efforts in this area include raising public awareness of the important role that SAFs play in aviation decarbonization, proposing regional support policies, and ensuring transparency and verifiability of emissions reductions through the use of SAFs. This includes promoting the establishment of a global standard accounting and reporting framework. The airlines will also explore the possibility of joint procurement of SAFs in specific locations. This is aimed at promoting SAF production and supporting the dissemination of SAF in the aviation industry. A second focus area is sharing best practices on reducing single-use plastics and waste, and improving energy efficiency in ground and cargo operations. This will enable both companies to improve their sustainability performance and accelerate the development and implementation of sustainable initiatives within their operations. “As part of our collaborative philosophy called ‘Greener Together,’ we are actively seeking strategic partnerships with like-minded industry leaders in the transition to sustainable aviation. The collaboration with Singapore Airlines aims to accelerate and support the development of the SAF supply chain in the region and create a stable SAF ecosystem to help the industry achieve its long-term decarbonization goals. Cathay Pacific is one of the first airlines in Asia to target 10% of its total fuel consumption to be SAF by 2030, helping to move the airline industry towards a greener future. We are taking a multi-pronged approach to contribute to the global economy.” (Comment from Ronald Lam, Cathay Group Chief Executive Officer)
