The definitive commercial aviation carbon calculator

IBA Insight Carbon Emissions Calculator (CEC) is the most advanced finance-focused carbon modelling tool currently available; we're leading the way. It's powered by IBA's proprietary fuel-burn intelligence which, when integrated with the Flights and Fleets module, can illustrate carbon emissions by any combination of: time period, airline, lessor, aircraft MSN and model, fleet, future portfolios, OEM, country, airport and route pair.



Over 65,000 commercial aircraft

35 Million

35 million airline flights tracked per year


Over 120,000 aircraft events added annually


Managed by a team with over 350 years of expertise

The benchmark for aviation ESG analysis. Supporting sustainably-linked finance, carbon offsets and ESG reporting.

Robust, independent calculations you can model at the seat, aircraft MSN, flight, portfolio and operator level

Powered by real-world flight information, our carbon emissions model supports analysis of specific aircraft, organisational performance and regional emissions distribution. You can assess aircraft fuel efficiency over different distances, load factors and seat layouts. Better environmental due diligence will optimise future acquisition and fleet management decisions.

Model and compare aviation organisations' aggregate Scope 1 emissions

The IBA Insight CEC lets you evaluate the adequacy of parties' efforts to reduce their carbon footprint. Our scenario modelling capability will highlight the comparative performance of different portfolios, lessors and operators. You'll expose current and future aircraft fleet composition and route improvements and quickly work out the market's stars and underperformers.

Achieve emissions clarity by region, country, route or airport

The Carbon Emissions Calculator powerfully maps the geographic footprint of emissions by model and organisation over time. Heatmaps illustrate the likely implications of new carbon offsetting schemes and allow assessment of potential emissions reduction by adopting Sustainable Aviation Fuels.


Our bespoke CEC helps aviation financiers demonstrate their ethical credentials. Its crucial intelligence underpins a robust understanding of global environmental concerns, makes operational efficiency data clear and provides unrivalled support for today's and tomorrow's aviation decision making.
