July 8, 2024

We are excited to announce that Port Hedland International Airport in Australia, has met all the necessary requirements to enter the Airport Carbon Accreditation programme at Level 2 Reduction.

Operated by the PHIA Operating Company Pty Ltd, the airport has demonstrated effective carbon management practices, including setting targets and achieving clear reductions in Scope 1 and 2 emissions.

Port Hedland International Airport has made significant efforts in reducing both Scope 1 and 2 emissions through strategic initiatives, many of which were implemented as part of its new terminal. These initiatives include energy-efficient lighting, double-glazed windows, a building management system, and the integration of hybrid vehicles into its fleet.

Additionally, the airport’s ongoing efforts include the construction of a 1.22 megawatt solar farm, highlighting the airport’s dedication to further reducing its carbon footprint.

Cheryl Edwardes, Chair of PHIA, said: “We are thrilled to announce that Port Hedland International Airport has achieved Level 2 Reduction accreditation under the Airport Carbon Accreditation programme. This accomplishment underscores the commitment of the PHIA to sustainable aviation and responsible carbon management.”

Stefano Baronci, Director General of ACI Asia-Pacific & Middle East, commented: “Congratulations to Port Hedland International Airport.
