In order to meet the various carbon and climate related financial disclosure initiatives, understanding your future carbon exposure is key for the future planning of your portfolio, investments and any potential offsetting requirements.


IBA’s CEC can assist in tracking the historical carbon intensity of all asset types and through IBA’s ESG advisory team, can assist in understanding projected carbon emissions throughout the lifetime of an aircraft.


Demonstrated in the chart below, IBA has extracted data from InsightIQ CEC to show the top 15 owners of aircraft placed with United Airlines, ranked by total CO2 emissions in 2019; a year unaffected by Covid-19. For demonstration purposes, this example excludes emissions generated by aircraft wholly owned by United Airlines.



InsightIQ CEC subscribers have the ability to create and compare fleet portfolios and asset types using any number of aircraft, owner, manager and date combination. The level of detail provided by InsightIQ and the CEC is unapparelled within the market and gives users clear visibility of their assets in terms of liquidity, aircraft history, movements and carbon intensity within one single programme.
