The INSPIRE partnership recognises that the measurement of success through the credible tracking of the reduction of emissions as a result of initiatives in the INSPIRE program is essential to establishing and maintaining the credibility of the partnership.
There is a significant amount of work being undertaken by other groups and organisations to develop metrics and methodologies for the measurement of emissions attributable to aviation.
The INSPIRE partners have agreed to take a pragmatic approach to measuring success.
For each initiative in the work program the partners with the direct support of the Airline partners will establish the current fuel burn/emissions for the part of trajectory that will be affected by the initiative. At the completion of the initiative or at the end of specific stages of the related works the airline partner will report the new fuel burn/emissions.
The savings associated with the success of each initiative will be reported.
