Other Impacts

water

We are looking at water efficiency and conservations improvements in all areas of our operations by measuring our water consumption and investigating methods to reduce consumption of potable water.

These include re-designing fuselage coatings to require less cleaning and waxing, setting shorter on-board bathroom tap flows, using seawater in air conditioning systems, and reusing excess water from water-cooled air-conditioning systems where appropriate.

To learn more about our initiatives and progress in this area, please read our annual Sustainable Development Report.

Biodiversity and Conservation

The conservation of habitats and species diversity continues to be important to Cathay Pacific. We recognise that we have an impact on the destinations to which we fly, and hence we are developing and incorporating biodiversity elements into our Sustainable Development Strategy, in partnership with the non-governmental organisation, Conservation International.

We are working closely with Cathay Pacific Holidays, our wholly-owned travel agency, to explore ways in which we could provide guidance and raise awareness on sustainable travel and tourism best practice among staff, passengers and operators, and identify opportunities where we can co-operate with the local communities where we operate.

Finally, in 2011, we have adopted a Sustainable Food Policy to ensure that unsustainably produced food items are not consumed at company paid functions, offered in food/beverage products or catering services provided/managed by the company, or served on board any Cathay Pacific or Dragonair flights.
