About our partnerships with Velocity Frequent Flyer.

Our partnership with Velocity Frequent Flyer allows Crunch members to earn Velocity Points when they recycle their bottles and cans*.

The Virgin Australia Group on sustainability and their initiatives.

The Virgin Australia Group is passionate about embedding sustainability as a core pillar of our business operations and strongly believe that we must do everything we can to ensure we have a healthy planet for generations to come. Virgin Australia has committed to a target of Net Zero Emissions by 2050, underpinned by practical, innovative initiatives designed to build from the airline’s historical efforts in sustainability. 

Partnerships with organisations like Envirobank are fundamental to our ongoing environmental commitments and demonstrates mutual sustainability benefits.

To reach net zero globally by 2050, Science Based Targets Initiative (STBI) modelling shows aviation emissions will need to decline to one-third of their pre-COVID levels, with the remainder required to be offset. Delivering net zero by 2050 will require a mix of actions with regards to aircraft technology, fleet and engine renewal, working with our partners, using smarter ground vehicles, carbon offsets and Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) and waste and circular economy.

Habitats the Virgin Australia Group preserves through their work with the Tasmanian Land Conservancy.
Current initiatives and programs:

APCO 2021 Winner​

As APCO member, we won the 2021 APCO Awards with our cabin waste program. As part of our 2020 product rollout, we have committed to eliminate packaging where feasible. We are working towards making all packaging reusable, recyclable or compostable as per the 2025 Targets, and to increase the use of produce packaging from 100% recycled content and/or 100% renewable materials. We have already made impressive strides towards these goals. Eco-Friendly Compostable Bagasse hot cup lids have replaced plastic hot cup lids, while a recyclable cardboard band has replaced soft plastics on amenity kits.​ 

Tasmanian Land Conservancy ​

Virgin Australia guests offsetting their flights are directly supporting the preservation of Tasmania’s native forests while also contributing to the protection of important species and ecosystems.​

The Tasmanian Land Conservancy (TLC) is a science-based environmental organisation that protects land for biodiversity, applying business principles to achieve conservation outcomes. The TLC manages over 30,000 hectares of habitat for rare and threatened species, including the iconic Tasmanian devil and the magnificent Tasmanian wedge-tailed eagle. ​

The Tasmanian Land Conservancy’s New Leaf Carbon Project directly reduces carbon dioxide entering the atmosphere by protecting approximately 12,000 hectares of native Tasmanian forest. Contiguous with the Tasmanian Wilderness World Heritage Area, it contains entire watersheds of pristine ecosystems and habitats.
