ACI’s airport carbon programme extends its reach as Incheon becomes South Korea's first accredited airport
Seoul’s Incheon International Airport has become the first South Korean airport to achieve certification in ACI’s Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA) programme. There are four levels of certification and the airport reached the third ‘Optimisation’ level. Under the programme, an airport must first measure its carbon footprint (Level 1) and put in place carbon management procedures to show emissions reductions (Level 2). To achieve Level 3, it must then engage with third party service providers at the airport, such as ground handlers and catering companies, to further reduce emissions. It also involves engagement with authorities and users on surface access to and from the airport. Launched by ACI Europe in June 2009, the voluntary programme now has around 80 airports participating on three continents: Europe, Africa and Asia.
