The aviation industry is facing many challenges concerning environmental effects associated to an overall increase in air travel. In order to analyse these environmental effects, the possibility for measurement in the areas connected to the aviation industry is essential. Metrics measuring progress towards meeting goals, called key performance indicators, are used in order to meet this requirement. The purpose of the thesis is to map and evaluate the various environmental key performance indicators that are utilised within European Air Traffic Management today, and the development underway for the future. Suggestions to LFV regarding suitable e-KPIs, and how they can be used within their organisation are also provided. Several organisations and initiatives, including the European Union, EUROCONTROL, Single European Sky, the International Civil Aviation Organisation and the Civil Air Navigation Service Organisation, as well as the British and French air navigation service providers, in addition to other stakeholders within the industry, have been investigated in terms of their work in the environmental area and which indicators they utilise. The investigation is based on a literature study and interviews conducted with stakeholders within previously mentioned organisations. Out of 39 indicators found during the mapping, seven remain after an initial selection and an analysis based on the utilisation of the SMART-model. In addition to the use of the SMART-model, the choice of suitable indicators is also based on the fact that the whole spectrum of a flight, meaning all phases, including planning, taxi-out, departure, en route, descent and arrival as well as taxi-in, should be taken into consideration.
