4AIR launches regulatory compliance programme


4AIR has launched a Regulatory Monitoring & Compliance Program in response to recent increases in reporting requirements.

The new programme helps operators monitor potential obligations to changing and multiplying national or transnational aircraft emissions reporting requirements. According to 4AIR, compliance reporting requirements have multiplied in recent years, and a reporting obligation could be triggered by something as simple as flying to, from or within a participating country. The programme automatically monitors operators’ flight activity to check and forecast any potential compliance obligations, helping them meet reporting requirements.

Kennedy Ricci, 4AIR’s president said the company’s purpose is to make sustainability more accessible, and so far that has been focused on aligned-voluntary programmes. “With the growing number of environmental regulatory obligations and their changing requirements, we wanted to add a turnkey tool for compliance with regulatory requirements as well to ensure our clients are always armed with the information needed to validate their sustainability efforts,” said Ricci.

Nancy Bsales, 4AIR’s chief operating officer, said: “4AIR is about making sustainability turnkey in all its forms, and this includes regulatory and corporate ESG reporting requirements. Especially as more regions, states and countries are changing thresholds and implementing new – and occasionally overlapping – environmental reporting programs, our program is designed to take that compliance burden off of our partners.”
