Workshop on RefuelEU Aviation environmental labelling scheme
Informing passengers of the environmental impact of their flight options is key in reinforcing the efforts of the aviation industry to decarbonise. The current lack of a common methodology, criteria and indicators adequately certified, reported and monitored, allows aircraft operators to claim levels of emissions performance of their flights that cannot be properly compared with each other. Passengers need to be able to trust the information from aircraft operators regarding the sustainability of the aviation fuels which aircraft operators use and regarding the sustainability of their flights, so they can make informed choices when comparing between different flight options, both for direct and indirect flights.
We will be convening a first workshop of the ReFuelEU Aviation environmental labelling scheme, with airlines and online travel agents, on 22nd and 23rd January 2024, in our Headquarters in Cologne (Germany). The aim is to exchange on the status, the methodology, data ingestion and treatment as well as the integration of the labelling into the ecosystem of emissions communication.
