According to industry projections, the share of aviation CO2 emissions of the global emissions could increase sharply from 3% in 2012 to 22% by 2050. Committed to reducing their emissions, airlines, airports and the aviation sector, as a whole, must take concrete action to improve their emissions and energy management.
Airport Carbon Accreditation
More specifically, the Airports Council International (ACI) Europe decided to adopt a resolution on climate change to mark the airports members’ commitment to reducing their carbon emissions, with the ultimate goal of becoming carbon neutral.
In this context, ACI Europe launched in 2009 Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA), a programme that spotlights the airports’ efforts to manage and reduce their CO2 emissions. This totally voluntary approach allows airports to obtain public recognition for their efforts and to communicate their engagement to their peers. ACA's popularity comes from its success in improving carbon and energy management performance and thus increasing the profitability of the airport. The ACA scheme has now spread to all ACI regions around the world.
Envisa has conducted several emission inventories and provided ACA consultancy to different European and international airports. Envisa supported, amongst others, VINCI Airports group and its airports in Japan, La Rochelle Île-de-Ré Airport and Brest-Bretagne Airport in France, Bahrain International Airport, Bucharest Henri Coandă International Airport in Romania, Libreville International Airport in Gabon, and many others.
Our experts are proficient in carbon accounting methodologies to evaluate, report and verify greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, such as the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) guidelines, the GHG Protocol, ACI’s Airport Carbon Accreditation, French Bilan Carbone, etc.
