Your Access Point for Airline Sustainability Data Management, Reporting, and Compliance
Reaching net zero by 2050 will require the coordinated efforts of the entire industry (airlines, airports, air navigation service providers, manufacturers) and significant government support. Reporting mechanisms will need to be established and fostering standardization and harmonization will be critical.
Simultaneously, there is a growing demand for enhanced transparency regarding airlines’ CO2 emissions. Airlines are asked to provide their data, which puts them at risk of losing control and ownership over this data and poses reputational and credibility risks. Additionally, the rising costs associated with environmental reporting have become a major concern to airlines that are still recovering from the effects of the pandemic.
IATA EcoHub provides solution to these pressing challenges.
One-stop shop for airline environmental data management
EcoHub aims to become the single access point for airline environmental data management, reporting, and compliance. By streamlining processes, EcoHub empowers airlines to efficiently fulfil their environmental commitments. The platform safeguards airlines’ environmental data and ensures confidentiality and ownership over it, while offering solutions to complex tasks that require powerful support tools. Currently, EcoHub offers two essential modules:
- CORSIA Center: formerly known as FRED+, a secured platform which supports and facilitates CO2 emissions reporting for aircraft operators and states subject to CORSIA in accordance with the ICAO requirements.
- CO2 Connect: a secured platform designed for airlines to upload their fuel burn and belly cargo performance in support of the IATA CO2 Connect calculator. The data is reviewed before being seamlessly integrated into the CO2 Connect calculator, enabling precise and accurate calculations of passenger CO2 emissions.
Access to EcoHub
EcoHub facilitates access to the users of EcoHub modules, primarily airline representatives as well as state authorities and other parties. EcoHub-wide access is tied to access to at least one of the modules available on the platform.

- SAFARI: SAFARI stands for SAF Accounting & Reporting Intelligence, the industry system for airlines, fuel suppliers, and corporates to book, manage, verify, and claim the environmental benefits associated with the use of sustainable aviation fuels.
- Carbon Offsetting: a central marketplace providing carbon market insights for airlines and aviation stakeholders to trade CO2 emission reductions, including CORSIA eligible emission units. This module will include the IATA Aviation Carbon Exchange (ACE) and other carbon market analytics.
- IEnvA Hub: an information center for the IATA Environmental Assessment program (IEnvA). IEnvA is an independent certification program that evaluates the environmental and sustainability efforts of aviation stakeholders.
