Airport industry carbon reduction scheme recognised as one of Europe's top low-carbon projects
The industry's Airport Carbon Accreditation programme has been named as one of the top three low-carbon European projects in the 'World You Like Challenge' competition organised by the European Commission. The runner-up award was presented to airport trade body ACI Europe by EU Climate Action Commissioner Connie Hedegaard at the annual global Sustainia Awards in Copenhagen. The Challenge is part of the Commission's pan-European public awareness campaign 'A world you like. With a climate you like', which promotes practical, innovative and cost-efficient solutions to climate change. Launched four years ago, the European airport carbon programme, which has been extended to ACI's Africa and the Asia-Pacific regions, now comprises 90 certified airports that collectively handle around 22 per cent of annual global air passenger traffic.
