Berlin Brandenburg Airport is now part of Airport Carbon Accreditation

February 5, 2024

We are delighted to announce that Berlin Brandenburg Airport in Germany has successfully met all the necessary requirements to enter Airport Carbon Accreditation directly at Level 3 Optimisation!

At Level 3, Berlin Brandenburg Airport extends its efforts beyond simply managing emissions within its direct control, actively involving and inspiring its entire ecosystem to participate in climate action.

Operated by Flughafen Berlin Brandenburg GmbH (FBB), Berlin Brandenburg Airport is gradually modernising its vehicle fleet, improving energy efficiency, optimising airport facilities, and expanding the use of renewable energies. FBB is committed to reducing its carbon emissions by 65% by 2030 compared to 2010 levels and aims to make Berlin Brandenburg Airport operations Net Zero by no later than 2045. Additionally, FBB actively supports its business partners in reducing their emissions.

Olivier Jankovec, Director General at ACI EUROPE said: “Congratulations to Berlin Brandenburg Airport for their remarkable achievement – entering the Airport Carbon Accreditation programme directly at Level 3 Optimisation. With their sights on becoming a Net Zero airport by 2045, BER is taking tangible steps to reduce their own emissions, while at the same time engaging their business partners, including airlines, in their carbon management journey.  Their efforts are truly commendable as they do contribute to the decarbonisation of the entire air transport sector. We very much look forward to keep working closely with the BER team all the way to Net Zero.”
