Heathrow 2.0 is our sustainability plan to connect people and planet. It focuses on decarbonisation and ensuring the airport, and the communities around it, can be a great place to live and work.

 We are pleased to share with you the highlights of our 2023 Sustainability Report: a comprehensive overview of our progress and initiatives towards our 2.0 plan. In the full report, we detail the progress we have made towards our 2030 goals, as well as some of the challenges we have faced.

You can access the full report here.


Our key 2023 achievements include:

  • Launching our sustainability-linked bond (SLB): In July, we launched our SLB that includes 100% of the airport’s carbon footprint, an airport first. Aligning with our carbon reduction targets ‘in the air’ and ‘on the ground’, it’s a financial mechanism that includes scope 3 emissions – representing a pivotal moment in our decarbonisation efforts.
  • Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) policy win: Through its Energy bill, Government committed to looking at de-risking investment in SAF through a consultation on a price support mechanism and committed to 5 SAF plants in UK by 2025.
  • Driving progress ‘on the ground’: We made good headway across 2023 in driving EV charging to support zero emission vehicles across the airport. 100% of Heathrow operational diesel vehicles have also made the switch to biodiesel.
  • Championing diversity: In 2023, we launched a fifth colleague diversity group, focusing on parents and carers. It’s a testament to our commitment to fostering an inclusive workplace.
  • Community Volunteering: Over 1,000 colleagues participated in local community volunteering through our Giving Back Programme. Together, we’re making a positive impact beyond the runway.


While 2023 witnessed several exciting moments that indicated Heathrow is making significant progress towards its 2.0 plan, there remains much work ahead. I eagerly anticipate our ongoing collaboration to propel this critical agenda forward.
