The airport has been awarded Level 2 accreditation, making it only the fifth airport in the UK to achieve the mark alongside Heathrow, Stansted, Manchester and Farnborough.

The award was made by Airport Carbon Accreditation, an initiative of ACI (Airports Council International) Europe, and reflects the airport’s success in reducing carbon emissions per passenger in 2013. It also recognises its approved, detailed Carbon Management Plan, setting out how it plans to continue reducing carbon emissions in the future.

Declan Collier, CEO of the airport, said: “LCY recognises that it has a duty to its neighbours and to the environment as a whole. Since achieving Level 1 accreditation in March 2013 we have been working hard to put in place steps to further reduce our carbon emissions and we are delighted to have been recognised for this work. We will continue to drive this programme forward and fully intend to achieve Level 3 status.”

Airport Carbon Accreditation is the only institutionally-endorsed carbon management certification standard specifically designed for airports. The step-by-step process encourages airports to reduce their carbon emissions with an ultimate goal of carbon neutral operations.

Airport Carbon Accreditation is the only institutionally-endorsed, carbon management certification standard specifically designed for airports. The programme independently assesses and recognises the efforts of airports to manage and reduce their carbon emissions with four levels of award: ‘Mapping’, ‘Reduction’, ‘Optimisation’ & ‘Neutrality’.
