New reports on CO2 emissions from flights

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has partnered with Travalyst to provide an accurate and accessible estimate of the carbon footprint of air travel

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has partnered with Travalyst on a mission to provide consumers with an accurate and accessible estimate of their carbon footprint from air travel. As all aviation and travel industries come together to achieve net zero CO2, this important new collaborative effort will bring even more transparency, accuracy and consistency to the measurement of the carbon footprint of passengers. Travellers.

Both Travalyst and IATA have extensive knowledge of the traveler and have the necessary technical and operational experience, which will allow both organizations to agree on the calculations of CO2 emissions. This collaboration will focus both on operational data and on the standardized methodology for calculating CO2 emissions per passenger, and which will have a unified criterion for calculating sustainable aviation fuel.

“Consumers want to know the environmental impact of their travel. Both Travalyst and IATA are continually working to improve their calculation methodologies by incorporating new insights into climate impact in order to provide the consumer with easy access and an accurate calculation of the environmental footprint of their travels,” said Willie Walsh, IATA director general.

“This historic union between airlines and the travel technology sector represents a milestone in the decarbonisation of travel. The climate emergency has changed the mindset of travelers, who want to know the impact of their environmental footprint when deciding their destinations That’s why we’ve brought together some of the leaders in the travel industry with the leading airline association, who will work closely to provide consumers with accurate and accessible carbon estimates,” said Sally Davey, Counsel Travalyst delegate.
