Sustainable Airport EnvironmentBanning single-use plastics, encouraging use of public transport to and from an airport, managing food waste, reducing use of fossil fuels, monitoring water use, switching to renewable energy sources, sourcing food sustainably. These are all examples of how an airport can begin to reduce its carbon footprint; its greenhouse-gas emissions; its impact on the environment.

The climate change emergency is upon us, and all industries must work hard at becoming more sustainable – the aviation industry included. As the above paragraph demonstrates, this goes beyond using sustainable aviation fuel.

However the entire industry must continue striving and innovating to ensure an airport’s surroundings are not negatively impacted and the environment is protected for the future.
