At the 2022 ACI EUROPE Regional Airports’ Conference and Exhibition (RACE) taking place in Palermo, the European airport industry marked a key milestone of more than 200 airports engaged in climate action within Airport Carbon Accreditation.

At the latest count, 204 European airports were engaged in climate action at one of the 6 available certification levels of the programme.

The latest airports to become accredited in the region are: Catania Fontanarossa (the 200th) at Level 2, Shannon at Level 1, Jersey at Level 1, Newcastle at Level 1 and Brussels South Charleroi at  Level 2.

Having originated in Europe, the region has consistently seen the highest levels of participation in Airport Carbon Accreditation since the programme’s inception in 2009.

From the initial 17 accredited airports, the programme has enjoyed robust year-on-year growth. European airports have also topped the ranking of the highest number of airports at the more advanced levels of accreditation – Level 3/3+ and 4/4+, with 77 airports currently holding accreditation at these levels.
