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 two airports implemented by Lithuanian Airports: Palanga and Kaunas, which brought the total number of accredited airports in Europe to 147. There are now 44 carbon neutral airports in the region. The most recent upgrade to this level was made by Prishtina International Airport in Kosovo. Well done!

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! Mariscal Sucre International Airport serving Quito 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 airport to join the programme is Mexico's Hermosillo Airport at Level 1 Mapping. Welcome!
