Latest CO2 reduction by Europe’s airports announced

June 22, 2016

Brussels, 22 June 2016: Following the global
airport industry’s commitment to reduce its carbon emissions made 8 years ago*,
the intervening years since then

have seen a groundswell of airports become part of the industry carbon
management initiative, Airport Carbon Accreditation. At this week’s 26th
ACI EUROPE Annual Congress, the airport industry released annual results (June
2015 to May 2016) for the Airport Carbon Accreditation programme’s
progress in Europe.

The programme certifies airports
at 4
different levels of accreditation covering all stages of carbon management (Mapping,
Reduction, Optimisation and Neutrality).
It is independently administered,
institutionally-endorsed¹ and has already won praise from the International
Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), the United Nations Framework Convention on
Climate Change (UNFCCC), the United Nation Environment Panel (UNEP) and the
European Union (EU).
