NATS has become not only the first air navigation service provider to report its greenhouse gas emissions – it has also achieved one of the top grades in its first year of reporting, beating the average score of 
nearly 6,000 companies worldwide.

Nats, based in Swanwick and Whiteley, achieved a B grade for its first year of reporting GHG emissions to CDP (formerly known as the Carbon Disclosure Project) for its success in responsibly managing and reporting a reduction in GHG emissions in UK airspace and across the business’ estate.

The average grade worldwide was C.

It reported various examples of how it responsibly managed GHGs in 2015-16, including delivering incremental adjustments to improve the efficiency of operational and tactical procedures, which helped save more than 34,000 tonnes of CO2 emissions.

Ian Jopson, head of environmental affairs, said: ‘To be awarded a B score in our first year of reporting greenhouse gases to CDP is a fantastic achievement, as it typically takes companies a number of years to achieve such a status.’
