Joffrey Maï explains how VINCI Airports is rolling out the group’s pioneering global environmental strategy in the Asia-Pacific region.
In 2016, VINCI Airports became the first global airport operator to launch an international environmental action plan for its entire network. And just five years after this major decision, all our airports have committed to a net zero carbon transition.
In Japan, Osaka and Kansai international airports were the first in the country to achieve Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA) Level 2 status in 2016, and upgraded to Level 3 in 2018. Kobe airport also achieved ACA Level 2 in 2018.
In doing so, operator, Kansai Airports, reduced its CO2 emissions by 11% between FY2016 and FY2019 and will continue to upgrade its ACA. While in 2020, despite the COVID-19 crisis, all our Cambodian airports reached Level 2 for their CO2 emissions scope 1 and 2 reduction.
