Airports addressing their CO2 emissions

Annual Report 2014 - 2015

ACCREDITED AIRPORTS

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 9 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.  There are now 18 airports at the highest level of accreditation - Level 4+ 'Transition'. The latest airports to achieve it were Helsinki Airport, Lapland Airports (Ivalo, Kittilä, Rovaniemi, Kuusamo), Heathrow Airport, Amsterdam Airport Schiphol Airport, Eindhoven Airport. The latest development was the upgrade of Palma de Mallorca Airpot and Sofia Airport to the level 3 'Optimisation'. Leeds Bradford Airport, Alicante-Elche Airport and Menorca Airport have upgraded to the Level 2 'Reduction'. The latest to join the programme was Gazipaşa-Alanya Airport at Level 1 'Mapping'.

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. We are delighted to confirm that the region now boasts three carbon neutral airports! Cibao International Airport in Dominican Republic upgraded to Level 3+ 'Neutrality', as the 3rd airport in the region to ever reach this high within the programme. The most recent entry was made by Cayenne Félix Eboué Airport that joined the programme at level 2 'Reduction'. The latest upgrade was by Salvador Bahia International Airport to Level 3 'Optimisation'. Well done!
