Finnair has been reporting its climate impact in the worldwide Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP) for three years now. In the latest report Finnair nearly doubled its result from last year to 61 CDLI (Carbon Disclosure Leadership Index).

."The very best airlines reached over 60 points, which also makes Finnair one of the European forerunners in this field," explained Kati Ihamäki, Finnair's VP Sustainable Development.

The CDP gathers information on the greenhouse gas emissions of various corporations and their strategies to reduce them, so that companies and decision-makers can combat climate change through their actions.

"A business can only manage what it measures. The Carbon Disclosure project has, on behalf of institutional investors, challenged the world's largest companies to measure and report their carbon emissions, integrating the long-term value and cost of climate change into their assessment of the financial health and future prospects," Ihamäki added.

Finnair reports on its environmental impacts not only via the CDP but also through its social responsibility reports and emissions calculator.

"Around 95% of an airline's emissions result from engine emissions during flying. The biggest environmental act that an airline can make, therefore, is to fly with modern, low-emission aircraft," said Ihamäki.

Finnair's European fleet is one of the most modern in the world and the modernisation of the long-haul fleet is near to completion. Every new generation of aircraft produces on average 20% less emissions than its predecessor.
