Galapagos Ecological airport and Geneva airport have joined the ranks of carbon neutral airports on the ACA register.

While aircraft operators are preparing for the implementation of CORSIA (ICAO’s global market-based measure to address emissions from international aviation), the new year has kicked off with renewed efforts by the global airport industry towards addressing its CO2 emissions, through the independent and voluntary global programme, Airport Carbon Accreditation.

Currently, 211 airports across the world now certified at one of the for levels of Airport Carbon Accreditation. These airports welcomed a total of 3.2bn passengers a year which represents 41.8% of global air passenger traffic.

There are now 37 airports recognised as carbon neutral and which have their emissions under their control, the latest of which is Galapagos: this is also the first carbon neutral airport in Latin America.
