International Airport Review
London Gatwick has achieved Level 4+ ‘Transition’ of the Airport Carbon Accreditation scheme, which is the only institutionally-endorsed, global carbon management certification programme for airports.
In addition to London Gatwick’s existing carbon reduction success, to achieve Level 4+ ‘Transition’, the airport was required to set out a policy commitment, alongside detailed targets, trajectories and action plans to reduce emissions in line with global climate goals.
London Gatwick has been carbon neutral since 2017, through the ACA scheme. This required the airport to offset its residual Scope 1 and 2 emissions, as well as emissions related to business travel.
