Brisbane Airport recognised for reducing carbon emissions

Tuesday, 19 January, 2016

Brisbane Airport Corporation’s (BAC) efforts in managing its carbon emissions have been officially recognised by Airports Council International (ACI), with Brisbane Airport now certified as Airport Carbon Accredited at Level 3 (Optimisation). It is the second Australian airport, and the eighth in the Asia-Pacific region, to reach this level of accreditation.

The global Airport Carbon Accreditation program certifies airports at four different levels of accreditation (Mapping, Reduction, Optimisation and Neutrality). To achieve Level 3 Optimisation Accreditation, BAC reduced the level of its Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions, mapped the carbon footprint for the whole of Brisbane Airport and demonstrated successful engagement with key stakeholders in ongoing efforts to improve the airport’s environmental sustainability.

“At Brisbane Airport, we are committed to sustainability and putting in place programs that help us manage and minimise long-term impacts of climate change and adverse environmental impacts from aviation and property development activities,” said BAC CEO and Managing Director Julieanne Alroe.

“Achieving Level 3 Optimisation Airport Carbon Accreditation is an achievement we’re very proud of, and one that encourages us to continue our efforts to further reduce our carbon footprint.”

Patti Chau, the regional director of ACI Asia-Pacific, congratulated Brisbane Airport on its achievement, saying the accreditation “demonstrates Brisbane Airport’s strong commitment to environmental protection and ensuring sustainable growth”.

“I look forward to seeing the airport’s future achievements on its journey towards carbon neutrality,” Chau said.
