Carbon Offset

THAI Voluntary Carbon Offset Program


Thai Airways International is committed to take part in the global effort to minimize aviation industry's impact on the environment. THAI has opted to adopt the IATA-administered carbon offset program, as it is a readily available tool that enables airlines to offer passengers the ability to compensate for the carbon emissions from their flying.

THAI introduces the Carbon Offset Program to passengers who would like to offset the carbon dioxide (CO2) generated from their air travel. THAI is pleased to offer you, our passengers, an opportunity to help the environment through our Carbon Offset Program at the purchase of the tickets on THAI.

When buying the ticket via our THAI website, you will be able to decide whether you wish to compensate for CO2 emissions. You will be able to see the amount of CO2 emitted for that particular flight and see the related cost for the offset. As well, you can view details on where your offset contributions are invested.

Please be noted that carbon emission is calculated based on a methodology developed by the International Air Transport Association (IATA).

Carbon Offset Program Audit

THAI’s Carbo Offset Program is audited by Quality Assurance Standard (QAS) , the independent quality assurance institute of Carbon Offset. This program was approved that affecting environmental advantage. Correct calculation of Carbon Offset as well as transparent pricing including accurate marketing tools are the dominant features of the program. Furthermore, THAI has been approved to utilize its quality logo as well.

Carbon Offset Portfolio

Funds collected through our Voluntary Carbon Offset Program will be contributed to the following project :

Bangkok Kamphaeng Saen East : Landfill Gas to Electricity Project

The Bangkok Kamphaeng Saen East project is Thailand’s first landfill gas project. It converts methane emissions from landfill waste into electricity, channelling it into the country’s national grid. The methane (a potent greenhouse gas) would otherwise escape into the atmosphere, contributing to climate change.

Creating renewable electricity is also helping to reduce Thailand’s reliance on fossil fuel-generated electricity, and lower its carbon emissions. In its first seven years, the project saved more than 270,000 tonnes of CO 2 annually.

Benefits

• The project will significantly improve local air quality
• The project will create global benefits through reduced impact upon climate change
• The project will also ensure that correct management of the landfill is carried out as to optimize landfill gas recovery
• The project creates employment and is helping to develop domestic expertise in landfill gas technology.
• An additional source of revenue from the project’s Certified Emissions Reduction credits (CER) will help to secure the future and the continued provision of sanitary waste disposal.
