Liège Airport moves up to Level 2 Reduction!

June 29, 2018

 
Liège Airport has just achieved an upgrade to Level 2 Reduction of Airport Carbon Accreditation.
In its environmental policy, Liège Airport has defined five lines of action to limit its carbon footprint:
• Rational use of energy
• Greenhouse gas emissions
• Air quality
• Legal and regulatory watch
• Awareness, information and partnership
 
In addition to acquainting staff with good environmental practices, numerous actions have allowed Liège Airport to reach Level 2: office heating by geothermal energy, installation of cogeneration with a heat network, acquisition of electric or hybrid vehicles with the installation of charging stations, purchase of 100% green electricity, etc.
More extensive actions are also under way and confirm the involvement of Liège Airport in fighting climate change and limiting its environmental impact. These include: insulation of buildings, installation of automatic shutters, construction of low energy buildings, programming of thermostats and a system of 3 heat recovery tubes, installation of photovoltaic panels, LED lighting and smart switches, installation of a metering station – air quality, waste management, etc.
In this way, Liège Airport confirms the integration of environmental protection into its corporate strategy. While maintaining its Management System meeting the requirements of the ISO 14001 standard, Liège Airport has further strengthened its environmental action by following the Airport Carbon Accreditation programme.
 
Congratulations to all the team at LGG on this excellent achievement!
