VINCI Airports obtains Level 4+ ‘Transition’ accreditation for all airports in Portugal

March 29, 2023

In a worldwide first, VINCI Airports obtained Level 4+ Transition for the entire airport system in Portugal, including Lisbon, Porto and Faro airports. 

This certification recognises that airports have fully accounted and reported direct and indirect CO2 emissions related to their activities and operations, have significantly reduced their direct emissions, offset their residual direct emissions and started to reduce their indirect emissions. Level 4+ also recognises that airports have set carbon emission reduction targets consistent with a sub-2°C warming scenario under the Paris Agreement.

Portugal thus becomes the first country in the European Union and indeed globally to have its entire airport system (10 airports) certified at the highest level of Airport Carbon Accreditation. This unprecedented performance is based on the exemplary deployment of VINCI Airports’ decarbonisation plan by Portuguese airports, which have already reduced their direct emissions by 35% since 2018.
