Airline issues we are addressing:
- Inconsistency in emissions data across the travel value chain.
- Inaccurate calculations of carbon footprint of air travel.
- Protecting confidentiality and ownership of sensitive airline performance data.
- Advocating against policies that exacerbate proliferation of CO2 data and/or increase the airlines’ administrative burden.
- Promoting adoption of industry-developed and -approved calculations.
Why airlines support IATA CO2 Connect?
- Substituting generic industry data with values reflecting airline’s own performance.
- Applying existing CORSIA processes and procedures.
- Calculating passenger carbon footprint using RP1726, the industry-approved methodology.
- Possibility to obtain CO2 data own network.
- Safeguarding sensitive performance data with IATA.
- Maintaining ownership of the methodology and calculation logic within the industry.
- Driving further improvements to the CO2 Connect calculator.
Here's how IATA CO2 Connect works?
Airlines share data through the newly designed EcoHub, access point for airlines sustainability data management, reporting, and compliance.
IATA integrates the data into IATA CO2 Connect, the industry-approved CO2 emissions calculation tool for commercial passenger flights.
IATA works with travel industry partners to distribute final CO2 values via Flat File or API to customers, ensuring standardized and accurate emissions data display across the travel value chain.
