1. Protecting habitats
Through partnering with Harapan Rainforest Initiative, SIA has restored 6,900ha of rainforest area and protected critically endangered animals.
2. A better fleet
SIA continues to invest in new and fuel-efficient aircraft to replace the older fleet, with an increase of 25% to 30% in fuel efficiency.
56 million kilogrammes of fuel have been saved since the 2015/2016 financial year, thanks to tailored water uplift and optimised flight routings. SIA’s world-first green-package flights from San Francisco have also saved 320 tonnes of carbon emissions.
4. Less waste
SIA is committed to minimising single-use plastics on board. By converting to reusable cups, the airline has saved one million paper cups and plastic lids. Digital technologies such as e-flight folders have also conserved 370 trees worth of paper.
