When it was set up in 2009, SustainAvia prepared the Aircraft Emissions Monitoring Plan and the Tonne-Kilometre Monitoring Plan for airlines and business jet operators affected by the EU ETS (see Module 1a).
SustainAvia also assisted aircraft operator in the implementation of the EU ETS Monitoring Plans (see Module 1b) and in the preparation of EU ETS Manuals.
SustainAvia also offered a range of consulting and technical services addressed to aircraft operators in the EU ETS as illustrated in this figure:
The names of aircraft operators who received technical assistance from SustainAvia are listed here.
When VerifAvia was accredited on 1 November 2010, all EU ETS activities of SustainAvia were transfered to VerifAvia, a verification body of greenhouse gas emissions for the aviation sector under the EU ETS Directive. The reason was to avoid any conflict of interest between consulting and verification, to safeguard the independence and impartiality of VerifAvia's verification services, and to all allow the team to focus on verification.
Consequently, SustainAvia no longer provides consulting or technical services to aircraft operators.
