"If you’re a traveller who cares about reducing your carbon footprint,
are some airlines better to fly with than others?
Several of the world’s major airlines have announced plans to become
“carbon neutral”, while others are trialling new aviation fuels. But are
any of their climate initiatives making much difference?
Those were the questions we set out to answer a year ago, by analysing
what the world’s largest 58 airlines – which fly 70% of the total
available seat-kilometres – are doing to live up to their promises to
cut their climate impact.
The good news? Some airlines are taking positive steps. The bad news?
When you compare what’s being done against the continued growth in
emissions, even the best airlines are not doing anywhere near enough."
