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 Torino Airport, which brought the total number of accredited airports in Europe to 136. There are now 39 carbon neutral airports in the region. The most recent upgrades to this level were made by Cannes Mandelieu and Saint Tropez Airports, making Aéroports de la Côte d'Azur the first carbon neutral airport group in France. Finnish airports were hard at work with their CO2 management, resulting in a joint upgrade of Lapland Airports to Level 3 Optimisation 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 Kobe Airport in Japan, proudly representing Asia-Pacific airports' growing support for the Paris Agreement. Japanese airports have been making great strides in carbon management with 3 of them recently upgrading to Level 3 Optimisation. Narita Airport became the first airport at this level in the country, followed shortly by Osaka and Kansai International Airports. Congratulations!

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: Mariscal Sucre International Airport serving Quito in Ecuador upgraded to Level 3 Optimisation, as the 2nd airport in the region to ever reach this high within the programme. The most recent new entry in the region, and the 1st airport to become accredited in Peru, is Pisco International Airport. Welcome!
