For carbon emissions reporting
Europe leads with ETS
The EEC's Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) launched into European airspace in 2009. Aviation operators had to submit carbon emission plans and then produce an annual report of their actual CO2 usage. Each operator was awarded an amount of free carbon credits. Operators who donít have enough, have to buy more. Trading starts in 2012. Thatís why we introduced Aviation Footprinter™ to simplify the whole process and ensure that operators get their credits and donít get penalised.
Web-based access 24/7
Aviation Footprinter™ is accessible at any time of day or night anywhere in the world. No special hardware is needed, just internet access.
Aviation Footprinter™ draws data from your existing flight planning and monitoring systems. Flight plans and expected fuel usage are compared with your recorded data and with Eurocontrol (which monitors all flights into and out of European airspace) records. The system automatically calculates, checks and tabulates carbon emissions.
Aviation Footprinter™ includes a full database of aircraft types and airports throughout the world to ensure input accuracy. The system automatically flags errors, omissions and inconsistencies, making it very user-friendly.
Aviation Footprinter™ generates its reports at the click of a mouse. The output includes full operator details, aircraft data and emissions data for every flight within European airspace within the period. Aviation Footprinter™ reports can be uploaded directly onto the Environment Agency website.
Aviation Footprinter™ makes life easier for your verifier. Much of their work can be done online because all the background data is accessible remotely. Even documents can be uploaded if required as a back up.
