FCM partners with CAPA to measure airline sustainability 

FCM Consulting has joined forces with Centre for Aviation (CAPA) to help clients address their environmental aims when planning business travel.

The service pairs FCM’s methodology with insights from the CAPA-Envest Airline Sustainability Benchmarking Report, which goes beyond the single CO2e metric typically used for sustainability calculations.

FCM clients will be able to leverage more sustainability performance indicators for their air travel strategy where sustainability is concerned, without impacting established initiatives such as Science Based Targets milestones.

Alongside CO2e metrics, the CAPA-Envest index offers an analysis of airlines’ sustainability performance in key metrics such as passenger CO2e / RPK (revenue passenger KM), passenger CO2e / ASK (available seat KM), passenger load factors, Sustainable Aviation Fuel utilisation and more, which allows for better comparison.

Glenn Thorsen, Sustainability Lead – FCM Consulting, said:  “In this rapidly evolving area, it is critical to be able to access independently evaluated industry data pulled from credible, audited reports. Being able to tap into a global airline sustainability rating system is invaluable and will form the cornerstone of an already robust service offering that supports our clients on their sustainability journeys.”

FCM is offering companies a benchmarking ‘taster’ on how their current air programme measures up against the expanded criteria. Register here.
