540,000 tonnes of CO2

October 11, 2010

London-Heathrow Airport – the busiest airport in Europe and the busiest airport in the world, in terms of international passenger traffic – has become Airport Carbon Accredited at the ‘Optimisation’ level – the highest level possible, without offsetting. Well done to everyone at BAA involved in this achievement!

This also brings the cumulative collective CO2 reduction achieved to date by Airport Carbon Accredited airports, to over 540,000 tonnes of CO2, in just 16 months.
