Zagreb Airport upgrades to Level 3 'Optimisation'

18 August 2021

Zagreb Airport is Croatia's first to reach Level 3 'Optimisation' within Airport Carbon Accreditation. This upgrade reflects the airport's successful efforts to reduce its own emissions and to influence its business partners to engage in climate action too. 

In recent years, Zagreb Airport has introduced a wide range of energy management measures that have enabled it to monitor and reduce total energy consumption, such as the installation of efficient LED lighting, reconstruction of low voltage in substation 2, boiler room reconstruction, reconstruction and modernization of heating/cooling substation in the administration building, and the production of hot water using solar collectors. Thanks to all these activities, carbon emissions at the airport were reduced by 4% between 2017 and 2019, despite a significant increase in passengers in that period.

The plan is to build a photovoltaic power plant that will directly convert solar energy into electricity and replace existing vehicles and equipment in an environmentally friendly way.
