Offsets

Last update for International Airlines by zerotracker.net: Oct. 1, 2023
Planning to use external offset credits Yes
Separate targets for emission reductions and removals No
Conditions on use of offset credits
  • No conditions specified
Plans for carbon dioxide removal (CDR) Yes (nature-based and CCS-based removals)

Additional notes: By 2030, fleet renewal and SAF programmes will have the biggest impact on reducing gross emissions, and CORSIA will have the biggest impact on reducing net emissions. (pg 10, 2022) Offsets: Less than 10 per cent of the emissions reductions to 2050 are from offsets. (pg 7, 2022) Removals: 4 methods to be used mainly, NBS (Nature-Based Solutions), BioEnergy Carbon Capture and Storage (BECCS), CCS with SAF production, Direct Air Capture (DAC). By 2050, IAG will only use carbon removals to mitigate any residual emissions from its operations (pg 8, 2022) Key changes versus 2021 roadmap are an earlier ramp up of carbon removals, larger net emissions reductions from CORSIA, fuel efficiency gains tapering by 2050, and an increased share of SAF in 2050 to reflect proposed mandates. (pg 7, 2022) Pricing: IAG advocates for carbon pricing as a key instrument to determine both the pace of emissions reductions for the aviation industry and the balance of in-sector and out-of-sector reductions. (pg 14, 2022)
