Vilnius Airport achieves Level 3 of Airport Carbon Accreditation programme

October 5, 2022

All three Lithuanian Airports are moving to a new level of the programme at the same time – Vilnius Airport, which has been participating in the Airport Carbon Accreditation programme since 2016, is moving from the second to the third level of the programme – Level 3 ‘Optimisation’, while Kaunas and Palanga airports, which have joined in 2019, are moving to the second level ‘Reduction’. 

Moving into the third level of the programme, Vilnius Airport will aim to reduce CO2 emissions by 30% by 2024, or to achieve a reduction of approximately 1 kg of CO2 per passenger.  In addition, this phase will require efforts not only to introduce more sustainable processes in its own operations, but also to involve the airport’s partners. It will take into account third party airport operations, tenants’ electricity and heating costs, waste disposal and other aspects.
