Following a lengthy and stringent accreditation process, Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH) has successfully earned an accreditation level of ‘reduction’ from the Airports Council International’s (ACI’s) Airport Carbon Accreditation program.
Building upon its prior achievement of becoming the first airport in MENA to be ACI Airport Carbon Accredited in the “mapping” level back in 2011, Abu Dhabi Airports is committed to reducing carbon dioxide emissions from its facilities.
To secure the new level of ‘reduction’, the Abu Dhabi Airports placed its seventh application to the program with evidence of effective carbon management procedures and target setting. The organisation also presented through collated data and analysis that a reduction in Abu Dhabi International Airport’s carbon emissions had been achieved since its last application.
“We are proud to be a leading airport operator in the region and to be doing our part in addressing aviation’s impact on climate change. The achievement of an accreditation level of ‘reduction’ is a milestone for us and recognizes our commitment and success in applying comprehensive carbon management in the capital’s airport,” said Abdul Majeed Al Khoori, Acting CEO of Abu Dhabi Airports.
“Environmental responsibility is something we take very seriously at Abu Dhabi Airports, as we work to develop a sustainable future for aviation and effectively manage the environmental impacts of our operations across our five airports in the Emirate of Abu Dhabi,” concluded Al Khoori.
