How is the offsetting requirement calculated?

An aircraft operator’s offset requirement is calculated by the following formula:



Example of calculation of an aircraft opeartor's offset requirement for year 2031:

For the year 2031, aircraft operators should apply at least 20% individual rate. In our example we therefore use 20% individual rate and 80% sectoral rate. Furthermore we will use the figures from examples of calculation of sector's growth factor and the aircraft operator's growth factor.











The offset requirement for our example aircraft operator for the year 2031 is 1,891,694 tonnes of CO2. The aircraft operator would then be required to purchase 1,891 carbon units on the carbon market.
