IAEG Publishes First Aerospace Industry Greenhouse Gas Reporting Guidance - Guidance earns "€œBuilt on GHG Protocol" by WRI

WARRENDALE, Pa., June 25, 2014 -

The International Aerospace Environmental Group (IAEG) announced it has released the first Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Reporting Guidance for the aerospace industry.

The Guidance is a voluntary consensus standard designed to supplement the World Resources Institute’s (WRI) GHG Protocol. It earned the WRI “Built on GHG Protocol” mark after public comment consultation. The document gives recommendations to aerospace industry companies on how to report their GHG emissions for direct emissions as well as for indirect emissions when linked to purchased energy and business travel.

“The Guidance enables consistent greenhouse gas emissions communication and reporting within the aerospace industry supply chain,” said Christer Hellstrand of The Boeing Company and Chair of IAEG. “This is the first product to be published by IAEG and represents a major milestone in the development of this global aerospace industry organization. It is a fantastic success for the IAEG Greenhouse Gas Reporting Work Group, led by Eric Chantrel of Safran.”

Since its creation in 2011, IAEG has more than doubled in size. Its members generate more than 50 percent of the total aerospace industry sales. For more information about IAEG, visit For more information about the WRI GHG Protocol visit
