Flexible delivery

API or dataset delivery methods mean it's easy to integrate CO2 data in the way that works best for you

For decades RDC have been monitoring and modelling the CO2 emissions arising from the growing aviation industry. We have the ability to calculate and report detailed airline operating expenses - including fuel burn, which in turn gives us the CO2 output from flying. Our accredited and independent methodology puts us ahead of our rivals. For accuracy on CO2 emission data we believe we can’t be beaten.

We passionately believe that business and consumers should be armed with the best information on which to make their purchasing decisions - particularly when it comes to making more environmentally friendly choices - this is why we developed our CO2 calculator and CARE Index.

Better method, better data

You may have seen many other CO2 calculators on the market but the methodology behind ours sets it apart. It has been specifically developed to provide the most flexible and accurate estimations of CO2 emissions available.

Flight comparison

Compare the efficiency of two or more airlines / aircraft on the same routing to promote a greener choice option for consumers

Carbon offset

Retrospectively quantify the CO2 output from a number of flights to help corporates report, understand and offset their business travel emissions

Carbon impact

Analysis of route, airline or network emissions for DMOs to measure the carbon impact of tourism

If you’re a sustainability manager, product manager, analyst, academic or just looking to monitor your own carbon footprint - leveraging our detailed CO2 data can help you.
