Long haul air freight (> 3700 km) - IATA RP1678
GLEC2019GlobalWeightOverDistance

Well-to-Wheel (WTW) emission intensity of freight using IATA RP1678 methodology. Each airline participating in the IATA carbon offset program uses its own dataset of real fuel consumption data. Retrieved from the Global Logistics Emissions Council Framework for Logistics Emissions Accounting and Reporting. (2019). NOTE: The source does not clarify if the kgCO2e value is calculated using either IPCC Fourth Assessment Report (AR4) or IPCC Fifth Assessment Report (AR5) methodologies.
