Calculate and offset your carbon emissions
Enter your flight details to calculate the carbon footprint of your trip. If there are multiple segments in your trip, enter each flight segment separately.
How does carbon offsetting work?As planes fly, they burn fuel that releases greenhouse gas emissions, such as carbon dioxide, into the atmosphere. Carbon offsetting allows individuals and businesses to neutralise these emissions and reduce their environmental impact. A passenger’s carbon offsetting contribution goes into purchasing independently verified carbon offsets, and this supports environmental projects that remove greenhouse gas emissions from the atmosphere or prevent future emissions from occurring.
Where you will make an impact
100% of your contribution goes towards verified carbon offset projects across Asia. These projects are independently accredited and meet rigorous standards to ensure they make an impactful difference to our planet.

Frequently asked questions
Carbon offsetting allows individuals and businesses 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 Singapore Airlines 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.
Singapore Airlines 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 with a unique serial number. For instance, if the project demonstrated a reduction in emissions of 1000 tonnes, they would be issued with 1000 carbon offsets. Once Singapore Airlines 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.
