Aircraft carbon emissions


Why an Industry-Standard Aviation Carbon Calculator is Greatly Needed

By Tomás López Fernebrand* | The recent landmark agreement reached at the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO) to address aviation CO2 emissions proves that the industry remains at the forefront of initiatives addressing climate change. This is just one of the many projects to improve operations’ efficiencies for the benefit of travellers, airlines, airports, industry stakeholders and the environment. The development of aviation carbon calculators that provide trip related CO2 estimations to travellers stands out as one of the earliest initiatives to raise awareness of airline emissions.
