I have just released my second book on aviation carbon footprinting – Aviation Carbon Footprint: Global Scheduled International Passenger Flights 2012. This book follows on from The Carbon Footprint of Aircraft Operations in Australia – 2011 which I released in October 2011. It uses the same computational method and reporting style as the earlier book to extend the Australian carbon footprinting to global international operations. In a similar manner to the first book, this document is designed as a resource for researchers, industry analysts, policy developers and interested members of the public. It is aimed at stimulating thinking on better ways to both manage the carbon footprint of aircraft operations and to monitor and report aviation carbon footprints.
