Counting CO₂ Reduction

All this talk about ‘tonnes of CO₂’ can sometimes make the reductions achieved hard to visualise. How much energy does a ton of CO₂ equate to? On this page, we try to give you some context on the collective reductions airports have reported for this year and previous years.

2021-2022

0tonnes of CO₂ (equivalent to the CO₂ emitted by the production of more than 81 million cotton t-shirts)

2019-2021

0tonnes of CO₂ (equivalent to the full lifecycle emissions of 4,967,400 iPhones)

July 2018 – June 2019
