If looking at the cost of these - attaining green should be relatively cheap based on my back-of-envelope calcs below:
So possibly less than $100 if going for the cheapest qualification route.
- Offset Flying - Offset a flight booked on Qantas.com; contribute to sustainable aviation fuel - offset $1-5 for domestic routes
- Sustainable Travel - Stay in a eco hotel - I can see this going one of two directions. Either it'll be a joint marketing venture with Accor around their Planet 21 program and trigger when QFF points post from the new QF/ALL tie-up, or it might be a Qantas Hotels thing with Tripadvisor GreenLeaders properties. Qantas Hotels already integrates Tripadvisor ratings into the engine, but doesn't seem to have any way to filter down on eco friendly properties at present.
- Sustainable Lifestyle - Offset your Home and Car; purchase solar panels - $50-100 per person based on table below
- Choose Sustainable - Purchase wine from an eco vineyard; offset Qantas Wine or Qantas Store delivery - I thought Qantas Wine used AusPost... and MyPost Business is already carbon neutral But worst case the offset is $1-2 max if already buying alcohol.
- Reduce Your Impact - Take our impact quiz to learn how - how much do you value your time...
- Give Back - Contribute to a sustainability organisation or project - I would guess this to be a 1000 point or $10 donation to Qantas Future Planet
Struggling to use your Frequent Flyer Points?
Award Flight Assist takes the hard work out of finding award availability and redeeming your frequent flyer or credit card points for flights.

Plus the marginal cost of a QF flight over alternative carriers.
It's easy to imagine the whole world is in the same position. I would look at the offer and see 10,000 points available for redeeming at some point on a groovy award flight. I do not fly domestically or for business - and if I did, I'd be using another carrier. I do not chase SCs.Presumably anyone chasing Green tier and/or 50 SC is already flying with Qantas at least once (or more likely four times for the swiggles) each membership year, so the cost of choosing Qantas above other carriers doesn't really come into it.
If going for a 1 night mattress run, the Crystalbrook Albion is the cheapest for around $265 a night based on what I seen so far for a city stay. Qantas vouchers can be used.Anyone found a sweet spot for sustainable hotel? Wondering if those unflexible hotel vouchers of PC PC+ could find an usage before they expire. What more sustainable way to travel would be to book a hotel stay that ends up as a noshow?
