Birmingham Airport’s Scope 1 and 2 greenhouse gas emissions fell 25% in 2022/23 compared to the most recent pre-pandemic year of 2019/20, a report published today revealed.

While the airport’s Greenhouse Gas Emissions Report for 2022/2023 showed an increase compared to 2021/22, where COVID-19 forced a 90% drop-off in activity at Birmingham Airport (BHX), the reduction versus 2019/20 shows BHX is heading in the right direction.

BHX’s chief finance and sustainability officer, Simon Richards, said: “This report shows encouraging progress toward our 2033 goal of becoming a net zero carbon airport.

“We continue to maintain focus, as we know that there’s still much work to do, with the final third of this journey set to be the toughest.”
