At Level 4 ‘Transformation’ of Airport Carbon Accreditation, airports are required to align their carbon management ambition with the global climate goals and transform their operations with absolute emissions reductions in mind, while also strengthening their stakeholder engagement.
How to achieve it?
In order to achieve Level 4, an airport is required to set an absolute emissions reduction target that includes all Scope 1 and Scope 2 emissions as a minimum (i.e., an airport operator target scope). If an airport chooses to do so, it may also incorporate one or more sources of Scope 3 emissions in its target and thus partially or entirely cover the airport as a system (i.e., a third-party-inclusive target scope).
The Application Manual presents in detail the requirements for carbon footprinting, the definition of targets and trajectories as well as stakeholder partnership.
