Project CARING (Contribution of Airlines for the Reduction of Industry Nuisances and Gases) aimed at understanding how airlines deal with current and future environmental constraints (emissions and noise).
Project CARING - which was conducted in 2010 and 2011 - was the only airline-related topic in the first call for projects. The consortium was led by OpenAirlines and included airlines (Airlinair, Transavia and the TUI Group: Thomson Airways, TUIfly, Corsairfly, etc.), an airline trade association (FNAM), a university & research lab (ENAC), and expert SMEs (ENVISA, Icon Consulting and SustainAvia).
The goal of CARING was fourfold:
The consortium invested almost 1 Million € in two years to pursue this research.
SustainAvia focused on the survey of environmental constraints in the aviation industry (EU ETS, APD, eco-tax, carbon tax, airport emissions tax, engine tax, etc.) and on the analysis of how airlines cope with these constraints from a business, operational and strategic point of view.
