Airports addressing their CO2 emissions

Annual Report 2014 - 2015

Airports across the world

A good idea often takes a lot of time and effort to turn it into a reality, but then success breeds success. Our efforts to motivate airports to approach the issue of CO2 emissions and climate change in a collective way began in Europe in 2009. Since then, demand for Airport Carbon Accreditation has grown gradually, but steadily to become something that airports all over the world can now get involved in. Year 8 of the programme has seen airports all across the globe get certified for their environmental efforts. Click on the buttons below to get a regional breakdown of the airports involved.

EUROPE

Europe remains by far the most active region of Airport Carbon Accreditation. It comes as no surprise given that the story of the programme began here in June 2009. Each passing year has seen more airports – of all sizes – get involved. The most recent development was the entry of Basel Mulhouse Airport and Aena's Santiago and Alicante-Elche airports, which brought the total number of accredited airports in Europe to 135. There are now 35 carbon neutral airports in the region. The most recent upgrades to this level were made by Brussels, London Stansted, Rome Ciampino, Treviso and TAG Farnborough Airports. Well done!

ASIA - PACIFIC

Here is the progress of Asia-Pacific region, the second to join Airport Carbon Accreditation at the end of November 2011. The most recent airport to join in the region is Changi Airport in Singapore , proudly representing Asia-Pacific airports' growing support for the Paris Agreement. The region has recently gained a new carbon neutral airport - Amman's Queen Alia International Airport became the first airport in the Middle East to boast this maturity of CO2 management. The region has welcomed its 45th airport and the 1st airport to ever become accredited in New Zealand: Christchurch Airport became accredited at Level 2 Reduction directly! Congratulations!

North America

This is what’s happening in North America. There are now 34 airports participating in the programme – all working to lower the airport industry’s collective carbon footprint. Most recently, North America has seen a prominent surge in airports joining and upgrading within the scheme. The latest entrants are Dallas Love Field Airport and 5 New York and New Jersey ports, three of which got accredited Level 3 Optimisation directly: JFK International, Newark Liberty International and Stewart International Airport. LaGuardia and Teterboro were recognised for measuring their carbon footprint, same as Dallas Love Field. Welcome!

Latin America & Caribbean

This is what’s happening in Latin America & Caribbean. In November 2014, Airport Carbon Accreditation became the global standard for carbon management certification, with its extension to airports in Latin America and the Caribbean. Recently, the region celebrated an impressive achievement: Galapagos Ecological Airport became the first carbon neutral airport in the region. Only a few weeks later, a group of six Dominican airports - previously known as AERODOM and now owned by VINCI Airports - joined the programme at Level 1 Mapping. The most recent arrivals in the programme are San José Juan Santamaria International Airport in Costa Rica and Curaçao International Airport in Curaçao. Welcome!
