Four AAI airports recognised for reducing carbon footprint

Airports Council International (ACI) has announced that four Airport Authority of India international airports Kolkata, Bhubaneswar, Varanasi, and Trivandrum have met all the requirements to upgrade to Level 2: “Reduction” by reducing the carbon emissions at airports.

Airports can participate at 4 levels of Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA) Programme – Level 1: Mapping, Level 2: Reduction, Level 3: Optimisation, Level 4: Neutrality.

“In line with national as well as global climate change initiatives, AAI has initiated carbon management program at four of these airports with an objective of ensuring sustainable development of aviation industry,” said the AAI release.

Carbon mapping occurs when the airport has policy commitment to emissions reduction and development of a Carbon Footprint for the airport’s scope-1 & scope-2 emissions, which are under its control.

Carbon reduction occurs when the airport shows the reduction in carbon emissions as compared to base year. AAI had achieved Level-1 accreditation during December 2018 for these four airports and has upgraded now to next level of accreditation i.e. Level 2: Reduction.
