Aberdeen International Airport has installed six new electric car charging points in its short stay and priority car parks, supplied by Podpoint, a leading provider of electric charging points. The new service will be free for customers using the car parks, with four units located on the first floor of the short stay zone and two further points in the priority area.
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.
