Earlier this year, we wrote several blogs about CORSIA (the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation) and what airlines need to do to prepare for it. As a reminder, here are the upcoming deadlines:
- This year, you need to produce and submit your Emissions Monitoring Plan (ideally by 30 September 2018), which should detail your methods for monitoring fuel usage, calculating emissions, and managing data flow and control.
- From 1 January 2019, you need to start monitoring your emissions.
- By 2020, you need to select a suitable verification agency who will be responsible for checking your CO2 emissions reports before they are submitted.
Of course, you will need to have completed a lot of groundwork before you can complete these tasks; we produced a handy checklist in our February blog to help you.
We also outlined some of the key challenges airlines might face when preparing for CORSIA. For instance:
- Do you know which CO2 calculation method is most suitable for your airline?
- Can your current CO2 monitoring processes and systems accurately forecast emissions and budgets for offsetting?
- Can you easily produce a complete and comprehensive report of how emissions data has been calculated and collected or would it be a time-consuming, largely manual task?
There’s now a new shortcut
If your preparations for CORSIA feel like an uphill struggle or just aren’t getting done because of time pressures, we have a new Quickstart consultancy package which is the ultimate shortcut. It includes the following:
Stage 1 – Gap Analysis Workshop
Over five days, our expert business consultants will help your teams prepare for CORSIA. By the end of the workshop, your teams will:
- understand the impact of CORSIA on your airline
- have conducted a preliminary CO2 assessment for applicable routes
- be able to estimate the expected CO2 budget
- understand the pros and cons of different monitoring methods
- be able to determine your airline’s CORSIA strategy and the tools required
- have performed an initial risk assessment
- have defined the next steps for creating the Emissions Monitoring Plan.
We will work with you at every stage and provide a gap analysis document containing all of the above, plus our own recommendations for the way forward.
Stage 2 – Submission of Emissions Monitoring Plan
We will help you put together this plan for your airline, which needs to be submitted to your country’s administering authority as soon as possible.
Stage 3 – FuelPlus software and implementation
You will subscribe to our CORSIA Emissions Module and we’ll help you implement it for your airline. This will enable you to easily monitor your CO2 emissions and report on them correctly.
If required, you can buy stage 1 on its own for a fixed fee. For stages 2 and 3, you need to subscribe to our software.
So don’t struggle with CORSIA any longer. Request a free consultation about our Quickstart package today.
