Phnom Penh International Airport becomes the highest accredited airport in Cambodia

January 22, 2024

We are delighted to announce that Phnom Penh International Airport has met all the requirements to upgrade to Level 3 Optimisation in Airport Carbon Accreditation, proudly becoming the first airport in Cambodia to reach this level.

At Level 3, Phnom Penh International Airport extends its efforts beyond simply managing emissions within its direct control, actively involving and inspiring its entire ecosystem to participate in impactful climate actions.

Operated by VINCI Airports, Phnom Penh International Airport maintains high sustainability standards. One of its main initiatives is the upgrade to energy-efficient lighting, which drastically reduces electricity consumption and thereby lowers the airport’s carbon footprint. Additionally, the airport has implemented the latest generation of wastewater treatment plants, further emphasising its commitment to sustainability.
