Ryanair Awarded A- Climate Protection Rating

Ryanair has been awarded an ‘A-’ rating on climate protection from the CDP – the international non-profit organisation that helps organisations to disclose their environmental impact. 

Through 2023, Ryanair progressed its ambitious decarbonisation plans.

The airline continued to take delivery of new B737-8200 “Gamechangers” (4% more seats, 16% less CO2) while working with fuel partners to accelerate sustainable aviation fuel (SAF) supply across Europe.

Following its order of 300 Boeing MAX-10 aircraft (21% more seats, 20% less CO2), it reset the group’s environmental goals, targeting 50 grams of CO2 per pax/km by 2031.

Ryanair said it continues funding aviation decarbonisation research through the Ryanair Sustainable Aviation Research Centre in Trinity College Dublin.                

Ryanair’s Director of Sustainability, Thomas Fowler, said: “We are delighted to be awarded an ‘A-’ rating by CDP. This rating reflects Ryanair’s industry leading CO2 emission intensity and our ambitious emission reduction strategy.”
