Emission Factor

Air freight/Air transport - RF effect unknown

1.637kgCO2e/usd

Emission factor summary

Emission intensity of supply chain (purchase of service/standard good/capital good) in US dollars spend on: air transport. Factors retrieved from the Quantis+GHG Protocol Scope 3 Calculator for the year 2016 and apply for years beyond 2016. The same emission factor applies to different types of investments in joint ventures/subsidiaries/associate companies that were not captured in Scope 1 emissions. NOTE: It is unknown if the radiative forcing (RF) effect that reflects the impact of contrails and high-altitude release of GHGs is included.
