A number of airports have been awarded with carbon neutral status at this year’s Airports Council International’s (ACI) general assembly in Brussels, Belgium.
Launching in Manchester in 2009, the program aims to promote airports to become carbon-reductive and ultimately carbon neutral.
Over the past nine years, an upward trend has continued with 237 airports worldwide now part of the program.
Most notably, 43 airports have “made it all the way” to carbon neutrality.
The most recent airports to gain the status were given certificates at ACI Europe’s general assembly in Brussels.
The airports compromised London Stansted Airport, Helsinki Airport, Geneva Airport, Brussels Airport, and Budapest Airport.
Airports are continuing to deliver “day-to-day” on the program and the program pledges to see 100 airports with the carbon neutral status by 2030.
