This groundbreaking and revolutionary methodology analyses each flight's specific aircraft type and design specifications, combined with real-time operational data and flight conditions, ensuring unparalleled accuracy and reliability in emission tracking.

Cirium’s Emerald Sky seamlessly integrates Cirium’s comprehensive data, advanced analytics, and innovative techniques to achieve unmatched precision in measuring both current and forecasted CO2 flight emissions.

Unlike traditional carbon calculators that depend on broad estimates and loose assumptions – such as using pre-planned routes instead of actual flown paths, and ignoring variables like wind speed and direction – Emerald Sky provides emissions results based on the seat in a specific class of service and sets a new standard in aircraft emissions measurement.

Jeremy Bowen, CEO of Cirium, said: “Cirium’s mission is to establish the industry standard for accurate fuel burn and carbon emissions data to empower the aviation sector to deliver on its sustainability targets.

“Cirium’s world-beating methodology even considers each aircraft’s typical operating weight, passengers and baggage, cargo payload, and degradation in engine efficiency over time to provide the most accurate data available to help achieve aviation’s ambitious sustainability goals.”

Endorsed by airlines and industry stakeholders, Emerald Sky offers users access to both historical data for up to five years and predictive carbon footprint for the upcoming 12 months.

This robust data enables precise, independent assessment of each aircraft's emissions, supporting more informed decision-making across the aviation sector. This ensures more precise flight emission reporting, which is critically important in meeting current and future climate regulations.

With superior data, Emerald Sky enables users to:

  • Undertake a thorough assessment of sustainable aircraft and fleet options
  • Identify opportunities for aircraft upgrades
  • Promote eco-friendly travel by providing sustainable flight options
  • Comply with emissions regulations and ESG reporting requirements
  • Evaluate investments in aviation carbon offset and elimination programs
  • Forecast the demand for sustainable aviation fuels (SAF)
  • Identify opportunities for aircraft upgrades.

In a world with an immense focus on the environmental impact of aviation, Emerald Sky's rigorous approach is essential for accurate reporting and responsible aviation practices.

Emerald Sky supports Cirium’s ongoing mission to make a meaningful positive impact on the future of aviation and the environment, alongside the industry’s Net Zero targets.

MEDIA ALERT: FIRE, HEALTH AND CLIMATE EXPERTS EXPLAIN HOW NUCLEAR WILL IMPACT SYDNEY, NSW COMMUNITIES AND ALL AUSTRALIANS

All Australians and every Sydney-sider should be extremely concerned about theFederal Opposition's scheme for nuclear power, even though the city isn’t a potential site for a power plant. Experts will explain on Thursday how the true cost of nuclear power will be more delays to climate action, more climate pollution and more unnatural disasters for Sydney, NSW and Australian communities at large. Greg Mullins, founder of Emergency Leaders for Climate Action, will speak to the dangers of continuing to burn coal, oil and gas, while communities are forced to wait for a false climate solution. He’ll highlight the regions most…

350.org Pacific responds to Australian Coalition nuclear plans

Canberra, Australia -Today Australia’s opposition leader, Peter Dutton announced a Coalition government’s future nuclear energy plans. Dutton named seven proposed sites for nuclear plants after boldly claiming the plan would cost less than Australia’s renewable energy development. Nuclear power plants are currently banned in all states and territories in Australia. While the final cost has not been revealed, it is estimated that a nuclear power plant in Australia would cost at least $8.5 billion. Jacynta Fa’amau,350.org Pacific Campaigner says: “This nuclear fantasy is a distraction from genuine climate action on Australia’s part. The Coalition claims to have the concerns of…

MEDIA RELEASE: Dutton’s nuclear nightmare a blatant attempt to keep burning coal and gas

National environmental justice group Friends of the Earth Australia (FoE) has slammed opposition leader Peter Dutton’s release of the Coalition nuclear policy, describing it as a nuclear nightmare and a cynical ploy to keep burning coal and gas. Nuclear is simply too expensive and will take far too long to build to do anything useful for Australia’s energy transition, and is little more than a political tool in the Coalition’s strategy to delay renewables and maintain the profits of fossil fuel companies. The nuclear energy industry has long been rejected in Australia and is banned because it presents significant risks…
