Shannon Airport has been awarded Carbon Accreditation Level 2 in Europe's Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA) programme by Airports Council International.

The accreditation acknowledges the commitment laid out in the Shannon Airport Group's sustainability strategy to green its operations and reduce the airport's carbon footprint.

To achieve the 'Level 2 - Reduction' accreditation, Shannon Airport had to demonstrate a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions over a three-year period through energy-saving projects such as active energy monitoring and management and an airport wide upgrade to more efficient LED lighting. 

The airport also had to submit a carbon management plan setting out a comprehensive programme of work to achieve a 51% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and Net Zero by 2050.
