Airport World - Joe Bates

Munich Airport is intensifying its existing climate targets and now intends to achieve Net Zero by 2035 instead of 2050 as previously intended.

Achieving Net Zero means reducing the emissions that the airport itself can influence – known as Scope 1 and 2 emissions – by a minimum of 90%. The remaining around 10% of emissions must be actively and permanently removed from the atmosphere.

To achieve Net Zero, measures are planned in four major areas: energy supply, airport-specific facilities and technical infrastructure, buildings, and the vehicle fleet. In all, the CO2 emissions of the base year 2016 that can be influenced by the airport will be reduced by over 90,000 tons.
