Developed in association with KPMG, IBA’s innovative Carbon Emissions Index measures your comparative carbon performance.
Leading the way in environmental reporting and green financing, our easy-to-use index tracks the global monthly commercial aircraft fleets’ emissions efficiency so you can gauge relative performance. The index tracks monthly CO2 emissions efficiency using the familiar measure of grams of CO2 per available seat kilometre.
IBA’s Carbon Emissions Index allows global aviation to showcase its actions towards improved efficiency and achievement of environmental social and governance (ESG) goals, fulfilment of reporting requirements and reduction in each available passenger seat’s emissions footprint.
The Carbon Emissions Index accurately records and compares the most efficient airlines and fleet operations. Subscribers can study carbon emissions to-date and understand relative operating performance across fleets on a per seat, per mile basis.
Powered by impartial, accurate carbon calculation methodology, IBA’s Index is an undeniable source of truth. It will enable effective access to green and sustainability-linked financing.
With data points starting from early 2018, the Carbon Emissions Index showcases the industry’s efforts and success at improving fleet efficiency and illustrates overall year-on-year reductions. Our team of expert analysts publishes a monthly investigation of efficiency trends and global active fleet mix performance across asset types, regions, airlines and lessors.
Accurate global flight information based on airport-to-airport, great circle distance integrates with the configuration, specification and fuel burn characteristics of all commercial aircraft and engines. A uniquely accurate CO2 emissions analysis results: Scope 1 emissions figures correspond with airlines’ own reporting at more than 99% accuracy.
Using big data methods, advanced analytics techniques, and the expertise of IBA’s 50-strong analyst and research teams, IBA compiles the Index and compares its results to the published sustainability reports and Scope 1 carbon emissions of over 50 global airlines.
