There has been continuing concern expressed about the aviation sector where the carbon impact of this mode of transport had been seen as a significant issue.
This challenge was at the core of a landmark resolution on Climate Change adopted by ACI EUROPE’s member airports in June 2008, in which they committed to reduce their carbon emissions with the ultimate goal of becoming carbon neutral.
Following years of working individually to address their local environmental impact, airports are now working in a collective way. The Airport Carbon Accreditation scheme was set up to make further strides in managing, reducing and ultimately neutralising their carbon footprint.
As part of the Airport Carbon Accreditation application process, each airport’s carbon footprint must be independently verified before consideration by the programme administrator WSP Environment & Energy.

Abricon are an established independent third party verifier for the scheme, and have recently worked with Lennart Meri Tallinn Airport who have successfully completed the Mapping of their carbon foot print. Click here for the case study.
