The findings reveal that only airlines in 12 countries have published standalone environmental reports. These reports were examined. Looking at 16 elements in the environmental reports. It was found that most elements were mentioned in the reports but that the definition of fuel efficiency in the environmental performance element differed between them making benchmarking a problem.
