C02 emission by airlines very low: DGCA

To make Indian skies more environment friendly, the Directorate General of Civil Aviation has for the first time come up with a detailed aviation carbon footprint report. The report states that Indian and foreign airlines in India account for less than one per cent of the country's total carbon dioxide emissions. From now on, all airlines and airports will have to submit air turbine fuel consumption, electricity usage and information about the movements of passenger, cargo and aircraft to the DGCA.

The report was prepared by DGCA in consultation with the European Union-India Civil Aviation Cooperation Project. The report, titled 'Carbon Footprint of Indian Aviation 2011', said the carbon footprint of Indian carriers was 12,704,000 tonnes of CO2.
