Dear Clients, Partners & Prospects!

First of all, on behalf of the Verifavia team, let me wish you a Happy New Year, give you my very best in 2022, with the hope for 2022 to be a year of strong recovery for the aviation industry!

2021 CORSIA Reporting : A reminder on deadlines, rules changes, and more...

We have now concluded the 2021 monitoring period which was also the first year of the Pilot Phase of CORSIA. We would first like to use this opportunity to remind and encourage aeroplane operators to start gathering all the required data and documents for the 2021 verification and submit them to your verifier as early as possible. This will help ensure that the earlier deadline of April 30th 2022 is met without the unnecessary stress and rush that comes with a last-minute verification.

This article aims to summarize the notable changes to catch a glimpse of some of the relevant information:
- Earlier deadline for 2021 emissions reporting to the Administering Authority
- Applicability of offsetting on routes
- Eligibility to use the ICAO CORSIA CO2 Estimation and Reporting Tool (CERT)
- Data gap threshold changes


A quick recap on EU ETS, UK ETS, and CH ETS 2021 reporting

The 2021 ETS reporting season sees considerable change due to the Brexit and the implementation of UK ETS. Operators who were previously reporting EU ETS emissions to the UK have now been assigned new EU ETS authorities. The first monitoring period for UK ETS has concluded and the first season of UK ETS verification is already underway. [...]

2021 versions of the Small Emitters Tool (SET) and the ICAO's CERT

The 2021 versions of the Small Emitters Tool (SET) and the ICAO CO2 Estimation and Reporting Tool (CERT) have been released.

All operators must use the 2021 versions in their 2021 emissions data reporting, whether it’s for data gap filling or as a primary monitoring method. The 2021 version of the SET has an updated estimation model, while the 2021 version of the CERT facilitates the identification of offsetting routes with the same estimation model as in the previous year.

2021 proved to be yet another year where airports took it upon their stride to accelerate towards a greener and more sustainable future. The past year was Year 13 of ACI Europe’s Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA) programme which saw airports remain steadfast on their carbon goals and rally to higher levels of the programme. The year saw ambitious targets, investment in greener technology, planning of systematic actions, and optimised processes.

Airports, along with their stakeholders, have demonstrated a strong commitment to a cleaner, brighter, and healthier industry. 2022 is all set to transcend the year gone by, with the industry expected to have reinforced environmental and sustainable accomplishments, ready for the return of the passengers.[...]
