Carbon Offsetting at Scoot

Welcome! All Scoot customers, no matter where you are flying from, can offset your flight’s carbon emissions through the Singapore Airlines Group Carbon Offset Programme. 

Through this voluntary program, we aim to encourage more customers to do their part to make flying a more sustainable way to travel, even for low-cost flights.

Read on to discover how you can offset your carbon footprint, and contribute to environmental projects that affect real change.

If you are interested in what Scoot is doing to mitigate our impact to the environment and reduce carbon emissions, check out our Sustainability page here or the SIA Group sustainability report here!

How does carbon offsetting work?

Air travel is a fast and convenient way for us to travel long distances, but flying planes releases greenhouse gas emissions (the majority of which is carbon dioxide). Such gases are shown to have negative effects on the environment.

Carbon offsetting is one of many ways that travellers can manage their own carbon footprint, by supporting projects that help to reduce greenhouse gases in the world. For example, sustainable agroforestry and renewable energy projects.

Through our Group carbon offset programme, Scoot customers have the option to mitigate the carbon footprint of their seat on their flight and make a positive impact on communities in Asia at the same time. This can be done anytime on this page – before or after their flight.

In order to offset your own carbon footprint, input your flight itinerary information and cabin class. A donation amount will be calculated based on the estimated carbon generated by the trip, and customers can make payment securely on this page.

All contributions will go towards supporting a group of specially selected projects across Asia that reduce or prevent greenhouse gas emissions and bring benefits to the communities that the projects are situated in. These carbon offset projects are independently accredited and meet rigorous standards to ensure that they make an impactful difference to our planet.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Carbon offsetting allows individuals to reduce their environmental impact. By purchasing independently verified carbon offsets, travellers support environmental projects that remove greenhouse gas emissions from the atmosphere (such as planting forests) or prevent future emissions from occurring (such as replacing a coal-fired power station with a wind farm). One unit of carbon offset represents one metric tonne of greenhouse gas emissions reduced or removed from the atmosphere.

We have calculated the emissions for each Scoot flight, and as a passenger you can offset your share of these emissions. The emissions for each flight are calculated on a per-passenger basis. Once you offset your flight, the equivalent number of carbon offsets will be purchased and retired by TEM in order to balance out your share of the flight’s emissions.

Scoot only purchases carbon offsets from projects that are verified at the highest international standards and are either already compliant or finalising compliance under the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation (CORSIA), which is governed by the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO). Projects are verified by an independent third-party like the Verified Carbon Standard Program and the Gold Standard, who ensure each project meets strict criteria to deliver measurable and permanent emissions reductions additional to a business-as-usual scenario. Following compliance with the relevant third-party, the project is then issued with carbon offsets, each has a unique serial number. For instance, if the project demonstrated a reduction in emissions of 1,000 tonnes, they would be issued with 1,000 carbon offsets. Once Scoot purchases carbon offsets from a project, they are then retired, ensuring the offset cannot be traded again, and completing the carbon offset cycle for the traveller.
