At Level 1 ‘Mapping’ of Airport Carbon Accreditation, airports are required to measure and inventorise their carbon footprint.
How to achieve it?
To achieve this level of accreditation, an airport has to:
An airport must understand how much carbon it emits every year and from which activities and operations in order to plan how to reduce these emissions. Therefore, as a first step, an airport needs to measure its carbon emissions, also known as its carbon footprint. An airport can measure its footprint itself, assisted by the Application Manual or get support from one of a number of specialist companies. Airports can also use ACERT, the Airport Carbon and Emissions Reporting Tool provided by ACI World free of charge to its members. It can be downloaded here.
