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 9 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 Inverness Airport and Stockholm Skavsta Airport at level 1 'Mapping' and Aberdeen Airport at level 2 'Reduction'which brought the total number of accredited airports in Europe to 162. There are now 51 carbon neutral airports in the region. The most recent upgrade to this level was made by London City Airport. Well done!

Here is the progress of Asia-Pacific region, the second to join Airport Carbon Accreditation at the end of November 2011. The most recent entry in the region was made by Oman's Duqm Airport at Level 1 'Mapping', proudly representing Asia-Pacific airports' growing support for the Paris Agreement. Shenzhen Bao'An International Airport in Mainland China is the latest to move up to level 3 'Optimisation' and 3 international Airports in Cambodia: Phnom Penh, Siem Reap and Sihanoukville jointly upgraded to level 2 'Reduction'. The region is now boasting 7 carbon neutral airports - Sharjah Airport is the most recent upgrader to the highest currently availble level of accreditation. 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. We are delighted to confirm that the region now boasts two carbon neutral airports! Quito International Airport in Ecuador upgraded to Level 3+ Neutrality, as the 2nd airport in the region to ever reach this high within the programme. The most recent entry was made by Mexico's ASUR Group - 9 airports, including Cancun, joined the programme at level 1 'Mapping'. We also congratulate the 6 South Dominican airports implemented by AERODOM for their recent upgrade to level 2 'Reduction'. Well done!
