ICAO aviation carbon emissions calculator

The Environmental Unit of the International Civil Aviation Organization's Air Transport Bureau has a couple of noteworthy resources for those interested in aviation and the environment issues.

In April 2008 an ICAO Carbon Emissions Calculator was released. It provides a calculation for the carbon foot print of a passengers based on entering the city of origin and destination, and class of travel. It will be interesting to see what uptake there is of this.

To me what was of more interest was the 14-page methodology paper that was released when the calculator was launched (see previous post).

Another resource available on the ICAO web site is the 260-page ICAO Environmental Report 2007 (this is an 11.31 MB download).
