We Care About the Earth

China Airlines regards environmental protection as a major focus for corporate governance, and is thus taking initiatives in promoting energy conservation, carbon reduction, and environmental management operations. We have implemented specific environmental principles and policies to ensure our compliance with the UN's Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), and to strive for a sustainable future. 

When we lift off in an airplane into the fluffy embrace of the clouds, we sense the heartbeat of the Earth. The uplifting air condenses to become our love for the Earth, and our commitment to protect and minimize our impact on the ecosystem as we glide through the sky. We vow to reduce our carbon footprint, and spread seeds of loving the Earth, to keep the world spinning on without end. 

You can join us by offsetting emissions associated with your flight. ECO TRAVEL is the China Airlines carbon offset scheme. Delivered in partnership with ClimateCare and Carbon Analytics, it allows you to measure the emissions generated by your flight, to offset these with ClimateCare, and to be a friend to our Earth and to the environment.

Disclosure of Carbon Footprint

The carbon footprint is defined to assess the environmental impact of a product or service from GHG emissions from raw materials, production, transportation, and usage to disposal throughout the life cycle. In order to fulfill carbon management and carbon reduction responsibilities, China Airlines not only monitors its overall carbon emissions on an annual basis, actively promoting various energy-saving operations for key emission sources and responding to the coming Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA), but also assumes the role of consumers to analyze and disclose their flight carbon emissions with actual data from fuel consumption and passenger/cargo loadings according to ICAO and IATA calculator methodology. China Airlines also launched the ECO TRAVEL offsetting program from 2018 to assist its customers in making their journey net emissions carbon neutral or zero carbon emissions. For the walfare and sustainable development of future generations, China Airlines sincerely invites everyone to join the carbon reduction process, starting with understanding the journey carbon footprint and joining the ECO TRAVEL offsetting program.
