Reaching the Level 2 of Airport Carbon Accreditation: done for Romania’s Cluj International Airport.

April 11, 2023

We are delighted to announce that Romania’s Cluj Avram Iancu International Airport has reached Level 2 ’Reduction’ of Airport Carbon Accreditation, having successfully delivered on its requirements, including a reduction target, a management plan and annual CO2 reductions.

Cluj Avram Iancu International Airport joined the program in November 2021, having fulfilled all the requirements of Level 1 ‘Mapping’. Their brand new accreditation at Level 2 recognizes the efforts made by the airport to deliver tangible CO2 reductions in the past year. Thanks to the accreditation process, the airport team were able to objectively understand the current status of CO2 emissions at the airport, set targets and start reducing them!

Cluj Avram Iancu International Airport is dedicated to sustainability and is working with industry partners and institutions to deliver a more climate-friendly air transport sector. For instance, as part of the OLGA project (hOListic Green Airport), under the auspices of the EU Green Deal, Cluj Airport is working on several environmental factors, including increasing the energy efficiency, improving the air quality, reducing the CO2 emissions and protecting the biodiversity. Three international airports and their local stakeholders are involved in the project together with Cluj Airport – Paris-Charles de Gaulle, Milan Malpensa and Zagreb. OLGA partners will seek to solve the challenge of significantly reducing the environmental impact of the air transportation sector as a whole.
