Environmental Performance

As a responsible business, effectively managing and continuously improving our environmental performance is important to us. It is our commitment to identify the relevant areas for action and reporting by engaging and responding to our stakeholders.

We are developing performance targets for ground activities, including our CO2 emissions, energy efficiency and resource consumption, to help us better manage our carbon and resource use. These targets will be adopted and reported in 2011.

Key issues raised by stakeholders on our Environmental Performance
Overall performance. Inflight waste. Resource efficiency. Air quality and noise impacts. Responsible sourcing.
Keeping track of our environmental data

In order to consolidate our experience of environmental data reporting across Cathay Pacific and our 100% subsidiaries, a comprehensive exercise was undertaken in 2010 to review greenhouse gas data collection procedures at these operations and subsidiaries. As a result, we are drafting a manual to provide guidance on collecting and quantifying baseline data, as well as setting achievable and meaningful energy and carbon reduction targets. This aims to ensure quality and consistency in the approach to reported data across our operations and subsidiaries.
