Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH) has been accredited by Airports Council International’s (ACI’s) Airport Carbon Accreditation programme, for significantly reducing its carbon dioxide emissions.
The programme provides a unique common framework and tools for active carbon management at airports, covering operational activities that contribute most to carbon emissions.
In 2011, AUH was the first airport in the Middle East and North Africa region to be ACI Airport Carbon Accredited in the ‘mapping’ level, and the achievement of an accreditation level of ‘reduction’ acknowledges the hub’s continued commitment to helping fight climate change through the management of its carbon dioxide emissions.
CEO, AUH, Abdul Majeed Al Khoori declared: “We are proud to be a leading airport operator in the region and to be doing our part in addressing aviation’s impact on climate change. The achievement of an accreditation level of ‘reduction’ is a milestone for us and recognises our commitment and success in applying comprehensive carbon management in the capital’s airport.
“Environmental responsibility is something we take very seriously at Abu Dhabi Airports, as we work to develop a sustainable future for aviation and effectively manage the environmental impacts of our operations across our five airports in the emirate of Abu Dhabi,” he concluded.
