|For Immediate Release||24 May 2022|
The Cathay Pacific Group has released its annual Sustainable Development Report that addresses its commitment and progress in the areas of environmental, social and governance, which are of great importance to its stakeholders, and towards its goal of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
Chief Executive Officer Augustus Tang said: "I am pleased to share our 2021 Sustainable Development Report, which sets out the specific progress we made last year towards our priority sustainability issues and being a good corporate citizen as the world tackled the COVID-19 pandemic. This included supporting our communities during this global health crisis, and making new commitments towards greater diversity in our workforce and the use of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) in our operations.
"As our industry makes a gradual recovery from the impact of COVID-19, the transition to low-carbon transport and towards sustainable aviation has reached a tipping point. Building on the carbon-neutral pledge we have made, we announced in 2021 our target of 10% SAF use for flights operated by Cathay Pacific by 2030. We also developed Asia's first major Corporate SAF Programme in 2021, which came to fruition last month with the launch of its pilot phase, bringing SAF into Hong Kong International Airport for uplift for the very first time. Together with our partners and corporate customers, we will continue to connect Hong Kong to the world in sustainable ways as recovery accelerates."
