IATA sets up working group to measure air cargo carbon footprint


The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has set up an airline working group, the Air Cargo Carbon Footprint (ACCF), to work out a common methodology to measure and report CO2 emissions from air cargo.
The ACCF is made up of 17 airlines representing the main cargo business models (traditional, cargo-only, integrator) in all regions of the world.
IATA said in a statement the objective of this worldwide survey is to collect feedback from freight forwarders and shippers and communicate the aggregated results to the airlines. The results will also help the ACCF in defining a common measurement and reporting for air cargo CO2 emissions.
The move by IATA follows requests from all parties in the supply chain, including airlines, freight forwarders and shippers and cargo operators, demonstrating a growing interest in the carbon footprint generated by air freight, the Shipping Gazette informs.
