Final Report of the ATM/ANS (Air traffic management/Air navigation services) Environmental Transparency Working Group, covering the Pillar-3, on how providers are improving their organisations’ environmental footprints. It equips the readers with the knowledge, skills and tools necessary to apply carbon foot printing into their own ANSP business processes. It provides an overview of what ANSPs can do to control their own environmental impact, which excludes airline emissions.
The EU has committed itself to become the first climate neutral block by 2050. Sustainability is high on the agenda and by focusing on sustainability, ANSPs can build back better. Air Traffic Management is responsible for 10% of all aircraft greenhouse gas emissions, according to the German Aviation Research Society (G.A.R.S.), yet European Institutions admit ANSPs can only influence 3 to 5% of the emissions. Many conferences, studies, webinars, and meetings are ongoing to further explore and research this problem, but what ANSPs can do right now is address their own carbon footprint. This report provides actions that can be implemented right now, because every little bit helps to reduce emissions.
