Malaysia Airlines announced March 6 that it is elevating its commitment to sustainability with the launch of the Malaysia Airlines Corporate Carbon Program, making it the first airline in Malaysia to introduce such an initiative.

 



This innovative initiative is designed to empower corporate customers, focusing on business travelers, by providing a comprehensive platform to understand and offset the carbon emissions associated with their travel.

 



In a strategic move towards fostering environmental responsibility, Malaysia Airlines continues to work with climate-tech company CHOOOSE to power the Corporate Carbon Program.

 



This marks a significant expansion following the airline’s successful voluntary carbon-offset program launched in June 2023.

 



The Malaysia Airlines Corporate Carbon Program goes beyond traditional carbon offsetting by offering corporate clients the opportunity to support certified climate projects.

 



Soon, the program will extend its offerings to include sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) credits, allowing corporate clients to actively contribute to sustainable aviation practices.

 



The Malaysia Airlines Corporate Carbon Program will enable corporate clients to access their own company portal where they can estimate and manage their carbon footprints more accurately.

 



Additionally, they can contribute towards projects that are removing or reducing carbon emissions around the world.

 



Through this program, companies can also view detailed analytics on emission trends, access in-depth carbon project content, and track their cumulative support for selected climate projects while addressing their scope 3 emissions.

 



“Extending our carbon program to our corporate customers reaffirms Malaysia Aviation Group’s commitment to meeting net-zero targets and address carbon emissions, empowering corporate clients to take part in our sustainability journey in a meaningful way,” said Philip See, Malaysia Aviation Group’s chief sustainability officer. “We look forward to complementing the support of certified climate projects with the option to support SAF in the near future, recognizing the crucial role it will play in decarbonizing the aviation industry. By leveraging technology and partnerships, we hope to drive meaningful change in aviation guided by the Malaysia Aviation Group Sustainability Blueprint.”

 



Andreas Slettvoll, CEO at CHOOOSE, said, “It’s an honor to support Malaysia Airlines in growing their carbon program to include not only individual travelers, but also corporate customers. If the aviation industry is to successfully decarbonize by 2050, it’s crucial for airlines to employ multifaceted programs—and it’s encouraging to see Malaysia Airlines put an emphasis on sustainability by expanding their program. Additionally, we look forward to enabling the support of SAF through both the Malaysia Airlines Passenger Carbon Program and Corporate Carbon Program next.”

 



The airline said the program reflects its dedication to sustainability, aligning with global initiatives for an environmentally conscious aviation industry.

 



Malaysia Airlines invites corporations to join this collective effort of addressing climate change.
