EuroAirport joins the programme!

July 4, 2018

 
EuroAirport has just been awarded with Level 2 Reduction accreditation in recognition of its policy to reduce its carbon footprint. The Airport Carbon Accreditation certification acknowledged EuroAirport’s efforts to reduce its own CO2 emissions and its commitment to achieve the target of 20% less CO2 emissions per traffic unit by 2022 compared to 2015 (reference year). EuroAirport’s CO2 emissions are directly linked to its infrastructure and the services it provides for its customers, including buildings, energy production and distribution as well as vehicle consumption. Reducing its environmental footprint is one of EuroAirport’s prime objectives and covers various aspects such as limiting noise, controlling emissions with a special emphasis on air pollutants, developing waste sorting systems and promoting low energy standards in new building and modernisation projects. EuroAirport’s development strategy, “EuroAirport 2030”, concerns the three key business segments of the airport: passenger traffic, air freight and industrial activities (maintenance and refurbishment of private aircraft). It is based on the principle of sustainable development made up of the three interdependent components: economy, society and environment. EuroAirport’s goal is to develop its operations while striking a balance between economic, social and ecological aspects.
