Abu Dhabi Airports has been certified by the Airports Council International (ACI) for Abu Dhabi International Airport’s (AUH) accreditation level of ‘reduction’ under the ACI’s Airport Carbon Accreditation programme.
Senior vice president, strategy and communications, Abu Dhabi Airports, Mohammed Al Katheeri received the certificate during the ACI Asia-Pacific World Annual General Assembly, Conference and Exhibition, which took place in Hong Kong yesterday (April 3) and was attended by senior executives from the international airport industry.
On the accomplishment, Al Katheeri said: “I am delighted to have the opportunity to represent Abu Dhabi Airports and receive this certificate from the ACI. We are committed to operating our airports sustainably and in a way that mitigates our impact on climate change.
“Abu Dhabi Airports is continuously working to reduce its carbon emissions and this certificate recognises our efforts to enhance the sustainability of our operations. Environmental responsibility is something we take very seriously and Abu Dhabi International Airport has a history of leading the region in this regard,” he added.
The ACI’s Airport Carbon Accreditation 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’ highlights Abu Dhabi Airports’ continued commitment to helping fight climate.
