Sharjah International Airport (SIA) has passed the third level of the International Accreditation Certificate on carbon emissions for airports.
Chairman, Sharjah Airport Authority, HE Ali Salim Al Midfa, praised SIA’s carbon emissions third level accreditation from the Airport Council International and confirmed that the accreditation demonstrates the extent of the Airport’s commitment to reducing carbon emissions through its adoption of a number of green initiatives and programmes.
Al Midfa said: “Within the third level of the certificate, Sharjah Airport succeeded in its cooperation with its partners in order to realise such a high achievement including airline companies, ground-handling service agents, fuel service providers, food suppliers and other concerned entities. This full cooperation encouraged all partners to adopt a strategic and comprehensive approach to managing carbon emissions.”
He continued: “We executed a new action plan to pass the third level and to receive the certificate of accreditation after the Airport was awarded the second level certificate of carbon emissions accreditation.”
SIA now joins the list of other airports that have been awarded level three accreditation, including Sydney Airport and Brisbane Airport in Australia, and Queen Alia Airport in Jordan.
Sharjah Airport Authority will now be working on solid plans with specialists to pass the fourth level (Neutrality).
