CORSIA Update: Overcoming monitoring & reporting frustrations

CORSIA (the Carbon Offsetting and Reduction Scheme for International Aviation) has now entered its Baseline Period. This means that airlines participating in the first phase of CORSIA are starting to monitor their CO2 emissions for international flights and this will continue during 2020.

The data collected between 2019 and 2020 will be used by ICAO to set an emissions baseline, so that from 2021 (the start of the Pilot Phase), airlines can volunteer to start offsetting any emissions that are above that baseline.

It’s vital that your emissions data is accurate so that a realistic baseline can be set. But if your monitoring and reporting tool isn’t up to the job, or you feel unprepared for the complexities of CORSIA (or indeed EU ETS), that can be a real challenge.

The most effective monitoring and reporting tool

FuelPlus software is already used by over 67 airlines representing over 28% of fuel in commercial aviation. Many of these carriers have been using our emissions module for ETS reporting for some time, and as of last year, this software has been upgraded to be fully CORSIA-compliant.

Here are the key strengths of our emissions software over other products (especially for existing FuelPlus users):

  • Built collaboratively with leading airlines — We worked with some of the world’s leading and largest carriers to create what we think is the best CORSIA emissions software on the market.
  • Quick, easy and low cost — If you already use the FuelPlus platform, you are already collecting a lot of the data required for emissions, so there will be no integration issues. You can simply add the emissions module to your existing FuelPlus deployment. Compared to other approaches, FuelPlus offers lower risks, lower costs and a much faster implementation.
  • Real and accurate data — Our software uses actual fuel consumption data from your flights to calculate emissions, rather than relying on averages based on aircraft type.
  • Suitable for large and small — It works well for all airlines, whatever their size and whatever their level of fuel consumption.
  • Useful insights — There’s a high level of detail or ‘granularity’ and you can opt to add detailed analytics features, enabling you to get operational and commercial fuel insights.
