International Airport Review - Tim Norwood

In a UK-airport first, Gatwick’s new electric forecourt will support VINCI Airport’s sustainability targets. Tim Norwood, Director of Corporate Affairs, Planning and Sustainability at London Gatwick Airport, explains more.

As a member of VINCI Airports’ network, we act as a team across 53 airports in 12 countries to improve passenger experience, innovation, and sustainability. On the field, we are always looking to enhance and improve how we work at Gatwick by increasing efficiency, making the passenger journey as seamless and enjoyable as possible, and cutting our carbon emissions.

Climate change is one of the most important issues facing society, not just aviation, and is something that must be tackled head on.

By 2019, we reduced our overall carbon emissions by 54 per cent (vs. 1990) through a range of energy and fuel efficiency initiatives and the purchase of 100 per cent renewable electricity, and we hold Airport Carbon Accreditation at Level 3+ ‘Neutral’ for direct emissions.
