Prague Airport Reduces Its Carbon Footprint by 72%
Last year, Prague Airport reduced its CO2 emissions by 72 percent compared to 2009. At the same time, the Company secured, again, its carbon footprint management certification under the Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA) programme.
Prague Airport is thus one of the 20 European airports committed not only to reducing the carbon footprint from their operations, but also to involve their partners in the effort. These include, for example, airlines, handling and catering service providers, and land transport users.
Since 2009, Prague Airport has been involved in the ACA programme, which, under the auspices of Airports Council International (ACI), independently evaluates the world's airports and acknowledges their efforts to reduce their carbon footprint. This year, Prague Airport, has, again, secured its carbon footprint management certification Level 3 - Optimisation under the Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA) programme.
