Europe - Airports Carbon Accreditation

Select Your
Destination Country


The Airport Carbon Accreditation scheme set up in 2009 by ACI Europe (the European section of the Airports Council International), the organisation representing airports in Europe, recognises that airports (not just aircraft flights) have an important role to play in controlling so-called green house gas emissions, and carbon in particular.
The independantly administered programme takes airports through 4 stages:

Mapping
Airports at the first stage go through a process of carbon emissions assessment and produce a Carbon Footprint Report.

Reduction
After the mapping process, airports are required setup a carbon management plan, showing procedures for checking the Carbon Footprint, and produce targets for reduced carbon emissions.

Optimisation
Following the reduction phase, participating airports move into the optimisation process where they are required to engage third parties including airlines, and various service providers to further reduce the overall airport carbon footprint. These services may include independent ground handlers, catering companies, air traffic control and others working on the airport site.

Neutrality
Having progressed through the previous three stages, airports use internationally recognised carbon offsetting as necessary to achieve carbon neutrality.

The most recent figures published by ACI Europe (February 2017) show 117 European airports acredited, between them accounting for 64.9% of Europe's air traffic, as shown below.

Mapping
29 Airports with 6.0% of European passenger traffic
