Abu Dhabi International Airport (AUH) has earned an accreditation level of ‘reduction’ from the Abu Dhabi International Airport (ACI’s) Airport Carbon Accreditation programme. The programme provides a unique common framework and tools for active carbon management at airports, covering operational activities that contribute most to carbon emissions. In 2011, AUH was the first airport in the Middle East and North Africa region to be ACI Airport Carbon Accredited in the “mapping” level, and the achievement of an accreditation level of ‘reduction’ recognizes Abu Dhabi Airports’ continued commitment to helping fight climate change through the management of its carbon dioxide emissions. This year, having fulfilled the requirements of the ‘mapping’ accreditation level during the previous six years, Abu Dhabi Airports initiated its seventh application to the program by providing evidence of its effective carbon management procedures, target setting, and by demonstrating that a reduction in Abu Dhabi International Airport’s carbon emissions had occurred through an analysis of consecutive years of emissions data. Abdul Majeed Al Khoori, Acting CEO of Abu Dhabi Airports said, “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. 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.”
