ACI on course to welcome 100th airport to its carbon scheme as Amsterdam Schiphol achieves neutrality
As it nears completion of the first five years of operation, the airport industry’s Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA) programme has reported that 96 airports across four continents have now been certified. Initially launched by ACI Europe in June 2009, the programme was expanded to Asia-Pacific in 2011 and Africa in June 2013. It certifies airports at four different levels of accreditation – Mapping, Reduction, Optimisation and Neutrality – and last week Amsterdam Schiphol, Europe’s fourth busiest airport, became the largest airport to achieve carbon neutrality, the highest level. With 15 airports in the Asia-Pacific region now participating in the programme, Sharjah International Airport has become the second to be accredited in the United Arab Emirates.
