Airport Carbon Accreditation is an independent, voluntary programme appointed by ACI (Airport Council International) EUROPE, to enforce the accreditation criteria for airports on an annual basis. As a hallmark of airports’ pioneering work in pro-actively addressing their carbon emissions, Airport Carbon Accreditation has received the official patronage of the European Civil Aviation Conference (ECAC) and EUROCONTROL.
The programme provides a unique common framework and tool for active carbon management at airports with measurable results. It covers the operational activities that contribute most to carbon emissions. It is site specific and can be used at any airport as part of its daily environmental management activity and long term strategy as it helps to guide and support airport environmental management through a process of continual improvement and partnership with its airport stakeholders.
