This summer marks ten years since a certain promise was made – the first piece of paper by European airports not just committing them to addressing their carbon emissions with the ultimate goal of becoming carbon neutral, but also to get ACI EUROPE to deliver a proper tool – within a year – that would help make it a reality. Marina Bylinsky takes a look back at the journey so far and ponders the road ahead.
Q&A with Niclas Svenningsen, Head of Strategy and Relationship Management, UNFCCC Secretariat.
Geneva Airport and Galapagós Ecological Airport are the latest to achieve carbon neutral status through ACI’s Airport Carbon Accreditation. There are now carbon neutral airports in every region of the world, marking the global airport industry’s efforts towards addressing its CO2 emissions.
To deliver on their commitment to fight Climate Change, airports worldwide are rolling up their sleeves and intensifying their efforts. More airports than ever are engaged in the Action for Climate, something which didn’t go unnoticed during the recent COP23 in Bonn. Agata Lyznik reports on the latest progress.
Helsinki Airport has officially brought its carbon footprint to zero and it has received the international ACI Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA) certificate for this achievement.
