Nine airports in Mexico join Airport Carbon Accreditation

June 27, 2024

We are delighted to announce that nine airports operated by Aeropuertos y Servicios Auxiliares (ASA) in Mexico, have met all the necessary requirements to achieve Level 1 of the Airport Carbon Accreditation programme.

To reach this level, an airport must conduct a detailed analysis of its CO2 emissions and establish well-structured plans to reduce them.

The sustainability policy of ASA complies with environmental regulations and systematically strives for the highest standards in environmental protection. These efforts aim to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and conserve biodiversity. Additionally, ASA is committed to defining a comprehensive sustainability strategy that includes energy efficiency and circular economy.

The nine airports that have achieved this milestone are:

  • Tepic International Airport
  • Puerto Escondido International Airport
  • Ciudad del Carmen International Airport
  • Loreto International Airport
  • Colima Airport
  • Puebla International Airport
  • Ciudad Victoria International Airport
  • Tehuacán Airport
  • Poza Rica El Tajín National Airport

With the inclusion of these nine airports, the Latin America & Caribbean region have now reached 85 airports in the Airport Carbon Accreditation programme.

Of the total certified airports, seven have been transferred by ASA to other operators, who will maintain their certification. These transfers include Tepic and Puerto Escondido to Grupo Aeroportuario Turístico Mexicano (GATM); Ciudad del Carmen, Colima, and Loreto to Grupo Aeroportuario de la Ciudad de México (GACM); and Puebla and Ciudad Victoria to Grupo Aeroportuario, Ferroviario, de Servicios Auxiliares y Conexos Olmeca-Maya-Mexica (GAFSACOMM).
