The International Aircraft Dealers Association (IADA) has partnered with industry sustainability solutions provider 4Air to assist the resale aircraft market in becoming more environmentally aware.

Under the deal, IADA member clients will receive a free carbon assessment and discounts on voluntary programs, along with regulatory monitoring and compliance services. Those customers will be able to use a web-based application to determine their carbon footprint to help them determine the impact of their purchase of any specific aircraft type.

“With today’s growing scrutiny of private travel and its impact on the environment, it’s increasingly important to be able to assist buyers and sellers [in answering] questions about prospective aircraft and their environmental impacts,” explained 4Air president Kennedy Ricci. “We provide an avenue to help those looking to make meaningful, verified, and documented steps in understanding and minimizing their environmental footprint.”

“The partnership with 4Air is a statement that the leaders in the business aviation resale industry place importance on sustainability,” added IADA chair emeritus and CFS Jets partner David Monacell, who has headed up the association’s environmental focus. “This new partnership gives IADA accredited dealers yet another tool to be the very best counselors available for buyers and sellers of business aircraft.”
