Airports addressing their CO2 emissions

Annual Report 2014 - 2015

Airports across the world

A good idea often takes a lot of time and effort to turn it into a reality, but then success breeds success. Our efforts to motivate airports to approach the issue of CO2 emissions and climate change in a collective way began in Europe in 2009. Since then, demand for Airport Carbon Accreditation has grown gradually, but steadily to become something that airports all over the world can now get involved in. Year 8 of the programme has seen airports all across the globe get certified for their environmental efforts. Click on the buttons below to get a regional breakdown of the airports involved.

EUROPE

Europe remains by far the most active region of Airport Carbon Accreditation. It comes as no surprise given that the story of the programme began here in June 2009. Each passing year has seen more airports – of all sizes – get involved. With the Year 8 coming to a close, 116 airports received certificates for addressing their carbon footprints, of which 27 were carbon neutral. Athens Airport, Lyon Saint-Exupery Airport and London Gatwick Airport are the latest to join the 3+ achievers.

ASIA - PACIFIC

Here is the progress of Asia-Pacific region, the second to join Airport Carbon Accreditation at the end of November 2011. Year 8 has seen a remarkable rise of carbon neutral airports in Asia Pacific with all four Indian airports reaching this level. Currently, the 37 accredited airports serve nearly 30% of passenger traffic in the region.

Africa

Since June 2013, when the pioneering Enifdha-Hammamet International Airport became accredited, 8 more airports joined the programme. This year was marked by a quadruple entry of South African airports, which received certificates for Mapping their carbon footprints. More airports are expected to apply in the year ahead.

North America

This is what is happening in North America. Since September 2014, North American and Canadian airports have been able to participate in Airport Carbon Accreditation. There are now 22 airports in the programme – all working to lower the airport industry’s collective carbon footprint. These range from some of the busiest, most iconic North American airports, to smaller regional airports that are enthusiastically embracing environmental innovation.

Latin America & Caribbean

This is what’s happening in Latin America & Caribbean. In November 2014, Airport Carbon Accreditation became the global standard for carbon management certification, with its extension to airports in Latin America and the Caribbean. In Year 8, two more airports became accredited for their environmental efforts: El Dorado Airport in Colombia and Guayaquil Airport in Ecuador. More are expected to apply in the year ahead.
