Kansai Airports Group gears up their Climate Action

December 7, 2018

Kansai Airports Group (Japanese part of the wider network of VINCI Airports) have secured a higher level of certification – Level 3 Optimisation – for Kansai (KIX) and Osaka (ITAMI) International Airports. That’s not all! Another airport in Japan was recognised for their carbon management efforts! Kobe Airport (KOBE) has successfully entered the programme, directly at Level 2 Reduction. Congratulations! 
The group developed a new environmental plan called One Eco-Airport Plan for the three airports (KIX, ITAMI and KOBE) in April 2018, along with its four basic policies: Response to climate change, Resource usage, Harmonious coexistence and Environmental management. Based on the plan and policies, the group has been carrying out a number of activities aimed at protecting the environment. These accreditation certificates are a testimony to the group’s relentless efforts to reduce the carbon footprint at the airports.
Kansai Airports Group is committed to further accelerating its efforts to reduce environmental impact in pursuit of a harmonious coexistence between the airports and their surrounding environment, through continued cooperation with airport-based operators and close communication with local communities.
