Perth Airport is committed to reducing its carbon impact.
Perth Airport has achieved Level 2: Reduction certification under the Airports Council International (ACI) Airport Carbon Accreditation program and is currently working towards Level 3 (proposed for 2020). This required the development of:
- An externally-verified carbon footprint report
- Data to demonstrate an annual reduction in emissions compared to the three-year rolling average
- The development of a Carbon Management Plan
- Setting an emissions reduction target
The ACI’s Airport Carbon Accreditation is the only institutionally-endorsed, carbon management certification standard for airports and participants are independently verified in accordance with ISO14064 (Greenhouse Gas Accounting). The management of our carbon emissions is a long-term commitment and supports our views of sustainability and effective environmental management. A statement of our commitment and intent is provided here.
