Spanish airports increase their commitment to reduce emissions

6 September, 2023

Airports in the Aena network that are part of the Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA) program have renewed or upgraded their accreditation level, taking a further step in the commitment to achieve carbon neutrality by 2026. Through this certification, the Airports Council International (ACI) recognises the efforts of airports in managing and reducing their CO2 emissions.

The Málaga-Costa del Sol Airport has been promoted this year to level 3 "Optimisation", matching those of Adolfo Suárez Madrid-Barajas, Josep Tarradellas Barcelona-El Prat and Palma de Mallorca, who have renewed their certification to the same level. A level that involves calculating the airport's carbon footprint, having a carbon management and reduction program, and having a plan to involve third parties.

On the other hand, the airports of Alicante-Elche Miguel Hernández, Ibiza, César Manrique-Lanzarote and Menorca have also renewed their level 2 "Reduction" accreditation, once all the required requirements have been successfully met; while Santiago-Rosalía de Castro Airport has maintained level 1 “Inventory”.
