EUROCONTROL data snapshots on CO₂ emissions

Our EUROCONTROL data snapshots show CO2 emissions from flights declined by 57% in 2020, but with considerable variations between States and the fact that half of CO2 emissions come from just 6% of flights: the long-haul ones.

Underlying flight data sourced from EUROCONTROL Central Route Charges Office (CRCO). The CO₂ emissions growth as shown is based on all flights departing from EUROCONTROL Member States taking into account aircraft type and route. As Israel, Morocco and Ukraine are not integrated in the multilateral route charges system they cannot be shown.

We take data management seriously.
At EUROCONTROL, we manage your data responsibly and do not provide it to third parties. We only use and process your data to answer your question and for quality control purposes. We apply our internal data protection rules, which are aligned with the General Data Protection Regulation, to all of our data-processing.
