Turkey’s Milas-Bodrum Airport recently acquired Level 1 ‘Mapping’ certification.
This is now the sixth airport in TAV’s portfolio to receive Airport Carbon Accreditation certification, the only institutionally endorsed, global carbon management programme for airports.
General manager, TAV Milas-Bodrum, Iclal Kayaoglu commenting on the news: “Minimising the effects of our operations on the environment is a core ambition for us at TAV. We believe that contributing to efforts to counter climate change is our responsibility to future generations. Joining Airport Carbon Accreditation is a significant step in the right direction for Milas-Bodrum Airport, as the programme provides a solid framework to optimise and eventually eliminate emissions. Our aim is to become carbon neutral by 2030 at the latest.”
Also commenting was director general, ACI Europe, Olivier Jankovec: “The successful accreditation of Milas Bodrum Airport within Airport Carbon Accreditation is a prime example of the airport industry’s unwavering commitment to addressing its emissions through thick and thin. In the midst of a devastating crisis, continued investment in decarbonisation is no small feat. I would like to congratulate everyone at TAV Airports who has had a hand in this excellent achievement. Well done!”
As of May 2021, five other airports operated by TAV are Airport Carbon Accredited. Izmir, Ankara and Antalya airports hold Level 3+ ‘Neutrality’; Enfidha-Hammamet Airport is at Level 3 ‘Optimisation’; and Zagreb Airport is at Level 2 ‘Reduction’.
Already part of the ACI Europe initiative to achieve net zero emissions by 2050, TAV Airports has recently committed to becoming carbon-neutral by 2030.
