Brussels South Charleroi Airport joins Airport Carbon Accreditation directly at Level 2!

March 21, 2022

Brussels South Charleroi Airport (BSCA) achieved Level 2 ‘Reduction’ of Airport Carbon Accreditation!

Entering the global carbon standard directly at the second level is testament to BSCA’s robust environmental policy, based on 8 key areas (air quality, water, noise, energy, soil, waste, mobility and biodiversity).

A number of practical measures have been implemented by BSCA to reach level 2 of the programme, including fitting LED lighting around the site, installing efficient natural gas air conditioning and heating equipment (resulting in a 25% reduction in consumption), installing solar panels on the roof of terminal 2 and electrical connection points for all parked aircraft.

Other projects are already underway and could mean that BSCA will reach level 3 of this accreditation programme by 2023.
