Ryanair today (5 Mar) released its February CO2 emissions statistics, which show an ave. of 69g CO2 per passenger/km.
|Total Kilometres||12,695m km|
|Total CO2 Emissions||882kt|
|CO2 Per Pax/km||69g|
Ryanair’s Director of Sustainability, Thomas Fowler said:
“With the youngest fleet and highest load factors, Ryanair is Europe’s greenest/cleanest major airline. Our CO2 per passenger/km is the lowest in the industry, having been cut from 82g to 66g over the last decade while other high fare competitors currently generate over 120g per pax/km.
The single most important thing any consumer can do to reduce their carbon footprint is switch to Ryanair. We are pleased to announce that our CO2 per pax/km for February was 69g, half the rate of other flag carrier European airlines, and we are committed to reducing this by a further 10% to under 60g per pax/km by 2030.”
