Five airports from Indonesia and Thailand newly accredited into industry carbon programme
Five airports from the Asia-Pacific region have been newly accredited under the airport industry’s Airport Carbon Accreditation programme. Indonesia’s Jakarta Soekarno-Hatta International and four airports in Thailand – Chiang Mai, Don Mueang, Hat Yai and Mae Fah Luang Chiang Rai – join 21 other airports that have been accredited so far in the region. The programme was first launched by ACI Europe in 2009 and extended to include ACI Asia-Pacific members in November 2011. The five new airports have been accredited at the first Mapping level, in which they are required to determine emissions within their operational boundary, calculate their annual carbon emissions, compile a carbon footprint report and have it independently verified. Last month, the programme received a further boost when it was extended to North America (see story).
