ACI announces four airports gain carbon accreditation

ACI Europe announced (16-Sep-2010) four new participants have become airport carbon-accredited in the past three months: Belgium's Brussels Airport, Turkey's Ankara Esenboga Airport and Antalya Airport and Sweden's Umea City Airport. Since its launch in Jun-2009, Airport Carbon Accreditation has certified 22 airports in 12 European countries. [more]

ACI Europe: “It’s worth keeping in mind that this is still a very young programme – yet the achieved reduction of 411,637 tonnes of CO2 is already a good start. The airports accredited to date account for 26% of European passenger traffic. In just 15 months, Airport Carbon Accreditation has already established itself as a scientifically robust and authoritative industry standard for carbon mapping and carbon management at airports. We are proud of these results and you can rest assured that we will continue our efforts to encourage more airports to become Airport Carbon Accredited,” Olivier Jankovec, Director General.
