We are delighted to announce several great strides made by Airports Company South Africa (ACSA) on their path towards the long-term goal of carbon neutrality of their network's operations (which they are planning to reach by 2025).
A fifth airport operated by the company joined the Airport Carbon Accreditation community. George Airport, Africa's first solar-powered airport has successfully joined at Level 1 'Mapping'. The airport is already a seasoned CO2 manager, as 50% of their energy needs is supplied through their own, 200m2 photo-voltaic plant, consisting of 3000 solar panels. Keep up the great work!
Two airports, including Africa's biggest and busiest airport - O.R. Tambo International Airport and Cape Town International Airport have been recognised for effectively reducing CO2 emissions from their operations with an upgrade to Level 2 'Reduction' of the programme.
Port Elizabeth International Airport and King Shaka International Airport achieved successful renewal at Level 1 Mapping of Airport Carbon Accreditation.
Congratulations to everyone involved for your work to reduce carbon intensity of the group's operations!
