Three Parisian airports in Groupe ADP's international network are now transforming their operations to allow deeper CO2 emissions cuts in alignment with the ambition of the Paris Agreement. Paris-Charles de Gaulle, Paris-Orly and Paris-Le Bourget airports have successfully upgraded to Level 4 'Transformation' of Airport Carbon Accreditation, bolstering climate action in and around the three key airport sites for the French capital.
At this recently introduced level, airports are required to set up a long-term absolute carbon emissions reduction target, aligned with the IPCC 1.5°C or 2°C pathways, as well as strengthening their stakeholder engagement to achieve carbon reductions across the entire airport site. The commitment to absolute emissions reductions needed at this level is a major step on the trajectory to reaching net zero emissions.
