NATS commits to international standard reporting of greenhouse gas emissions

Posted 8 December 2015 · Add Comment

NATS is the first air navigation service provider to sign up to an international voluntary framework committing to transparently report its greenhouse gas emissions performance.

The UK air traffic management company was one of the first aviation related organisations to make this commitment and the 170th signatory to the Paris COP21 initiative. The initiative is being led by the Climate Disclosure Standards Board (CDSB) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP Finance Initiative).

Currently, NATS is implementing the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol to standardise how it identifies and calculates greenhouse gas emissions and will now also voluntarily report this information using the Climate Change Reporting Framework.

As a responsible provider in the aviation industry, NATS recognises that it has a duty to reduce the impact aviation has on the environment and is taking strategic actions to improve the services it offers to its airline and airport customers to remain resilient to the effects of climate change.

Ian Jopson, Head of Environmental and Community Affairs, NATS, said: “Our business is about keeping the skies safe and delivering innovative air traffic solutions and airport performance.

“We’re committed to finding ways to do that, while always working hard to minimise the impact our operation has on the environment and the people around us. We want to make a world of difference in the air, on the ground and in the community.”

The air traffic control provider has ambitious environmental targets to reduce air traffic related CO2 emissions by 10% in 2020, to decrease inefficiency in UK airspace using a world first 3Di metric and to reduce its estate CO2 emissions.
