Climate change is a critical environmental issue gaining importance across the globe. Governments are making considerable efforts to control the impact of climate change by implementing appropriate environmental measures. Today, there is also a visible shift in the focus of organizations towards sustainability development as part of corporate social responsibility initiatives. In the light of worldwide contributions and efforts to combat climate change and emission control, the aviation industry assumes a lot of significance due to the nature of direct emissions into the atmosphere caused by air travel. The entire aviation community comprising of aircraft operators, aircraft manufacturers, fuel suppliers, airport operators and air navigation service providers, are placing significant emphasis on containing the level of atmospheric emissions.
Aircraft operators in particular are seeking to adopt measures to monitor, report and verify the level of their emissions. These measures could be seen as a tactic to improve brand perception, or as a response to the worldwide cause for a greener planet, or simply a need to comply with increasingly stringent requirements being enforced through various global mandates. The European Union Emissions Trading System (EU ETS) is a measure undertaken by the European Union (EU) to reduce CO2 emissions by allowing only a certain amount of CO2 to be emitted or produced per year. The European Commission also considers aviation as one of the most important sectors to reduce carbon emissions.
