Frequently asked questions

What is Offset your Home and Car?

This product is intended to offset the emissions associated with your electricity use, gas use and motor vehicles for one year. By ordering this product, you’re allowing Qantas to purchase carbon offset credits which support environmental projects that remove greenhouse gas emissions from the atmosphere (such as planting forests) or prevent future emissions from occurring (such as replacing electricity from a coal-fired power station with electricity from renewable sources such as wind or solar).


How can you prove my impact?

Qantas has been offsetting emissions for more than a decade. Our 'tick-the-box' to Fly Carbon Neutral offsetting program is Climate Active certified and one of the largest of any airline. Our corporate offset program Future Planet is trusted by some of Australia’s largest organisations. We have a long history of experience in carbon offsetting and together with our offset provider TEM, ensure the highest levels of due diligence and rigour in our processes ensuring your contribution achieves real, measurable, long lasting impact on climate. 

The calculations for Offset your Home and Car have been drawn from a large suite of verified emissions sources, including the Australian National Greenhouse Accounts Factors, DEFRA and relevant jurisdictional emissions sources. More information on the product calculation can be found here.


Who regulates and verifies that this offset program actually reduces carbon emissions? Qantas only purchases carbon offsets from projects that are verified at the highest international standards. 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.


Why does the cost of the offsets differ by state? Energy-related emissions form the lion’s share of activities offset by Offset your Home and Car and vary significantly across Australia’s states and territories, based on the primary source of generation. For instance, electricity in Victoria is generated predominantly from coal which has a higher emissions profile when compared to, for example, Tasmania where electricity generation is dominated by hydro power. Therefore, the cost to offset the equivalent household emissions will be more expensive in Victoria on account of the higher number of offset credits required.

Has Qantas made all deliveries carbon neutral? If so, why?  We've made all Qantas Rewards Store and Qantas Wine deliveries carbon neutral. This means that any emissions associated with the process of delivering your packages are already offset by the organisation. We believe it is important to take responsibility for the emissions that are produced as part of our business operations and make sure our delivery process is as sustainable as possible.


Why would I make my delivery climate positive? Taking a step beyond carbon neutral and making your delivery climate positive is an easy way to further decrease your carbon footprint and make a positive environmental contribution.


What does ‘climate positive’ mean? Climate positive describes an activity, product or organisation that goes beyond achieving net zero carbon emissions to create an environmental benefit by removing additional emissions from the atmosphere. Removing additional emissions from the atmosphere is an important step in slowing and preventing the effects of climate change.

Are my donations tax deductible? No, members are not entitled to a tax deduction for redeeming points for charity (pursuant to taxation laws).


Will a donation to any charity count towards Green tier?

No, all denomination contributions from either Kimberley Land Council, OzHarvest, UNICEF or The Great Barrier Reef Foundation will count towards Green tier, as these charities support sustainable causes. All other charities will not count towards Green tier. 


Can I use Points Plus Pay on charities?

No, you can only make a contribution using all points.


Can I earn Qantas Points on my charity redemption? 

No, you're not able to earn Qantas Points when you use your points to make a contribution to charities.


How do charity redemptions work?

When you use points to make a contribution to Kimberley Land Council, Ozharvest, UNICEF and/or the Great Barrier Reef Foundation, Qantas will pay the specified dollar amount to your chosen charity. You'll receive a redemption confirmation email. No item will be posted to you following your redemption. If you'd like to redeem points for one of these charities, select 'Add to cart'. You'll see that this redemption option is 'Ready to despatch' which is the standard order status for this option.

What is carbon offsetting? Carbon offsetting allows individuals and businesses to reduce their environmental impact. By purchasing independently verified carbon offsets, customers support environmental projects that remove greenhouse gas emissions from the atmosphere (such as planting trees) or prevent future emissions from occurring (such as replacing electricity from a coal-fired power station with electricity from renewable sources such as wind or solar). One unit of carbon offset represents one metric tonne of greenhouse gas emissions reduced or removed from the atmosphere.
