It aims to encourage and enable airports and its stakeholders to implement best practices in Greenhouse Gas (GHG) management and achieve emission reductions. The Airport Carbon Accreditation programme of ACI was launched in 2009. Initially had 4 Levels- “Level 1: Mapping”, “Level 2: Reduction”, “Level 3: Optimisation” and “Level 3+ Neutrality”.

This was the highest level of accreditation at that time and DIAL has maintained “Level 3+, Neutrality” accreditation since then.
