Airports addressing their CO2 emissions

Annual Report 2014 - 2015

ACCREDITED AIRPORTS

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.  There are now 27 airports at the highest level of accreditation - Level 4+ 'Transition'. The latest airports to achieve it were Copenhagen, Malmö, Åre Östersund, Kiruna and Visby Airports. The latest development was the upgrade of Monaco Heliport and Liège Airport to Level 3 'Optimisation'. Following airports have joined climate action at Level 2 'Reduction' - Angouleme Airport, Auch-Gers Airport, Courchevel Altiport, Dalaman Airport, Deauville Normandie Airport, Aéroport d'Ajaccio Napoléon Bonaparte, Bastia Poretta Airport, Calvi Sainte-Catherine Airport, Figari Sud Corse Airport and London Biggin Hill Airport at Level 1 'Mapping'. Congratulations to all!
