Carbon Performance Alaska Air

Carbon Performance alignment of companies in the Alaska Air sector with the Paris agreement benchmarks.

Assessment Date:
TPI notes:

The company discloses an emissions intensity and target using an activity measure and/or emissions figure that is inconsistent with TPI’s methodology for this sector. The carbon intensity has been recalculated according to TPI methodology. The historic intensity figures have been adjusted to include Virgin America, which Alaska Air acquired in 2016. Based on information disclosed, TPI assumes that the company's aircraft carbon emissions represent over 99% of total Scope 1&2 emissions and that freight operations are negligible.
