Brisbane recognised for environmental efforts

Brisbane Airport Corporation’s (BAC) effort in managing its carbon emissions and operating Brisbane Airport in an environmentally sustainable manner has been recognised with a Level 1 Mapping Airport Carbon Accreditation certificate.

The independently administered global programme certifies airports at four different levels of accreditation (Mapping, Reduction, Optimisation and Neutrality).

To achieve Level 1 Mapping, BAC identified all carbon emission sources under its control, calculating its annual carbon emissions and compiling a carbon footprint report and engaging an independent third-party to verify its carbon footprint report.

Julieanne Alroe, BAC CEO and managing director, says the airport’s sustainability strategy aimed to reach beyond a risk and compliance position.

“At Brisbane Airport we are committed to treading lightly on the land and putting in place programmes that help us manage and minimise long-term impacts of climate change and adverse environmental impacts from aviation and property development activities.

“Achieving Level 1 Mapping Airport Carbon Accreditation is an achievement we’re very proud of and one that encourages us to do even more for sustainability,” Alroe says.

Regional director of ACI Asia-Pacific, Patti Chau, says: “I wish to congratulate Brisbane Airport Corporation for its effort in attaining this recognition by Airport Carbon Accreditation – the institutionally endorsed environmental programme for airports worldwide.

“Since its launch in 2009, 115 airports in the world have been accredited, including 22 in the Asia-Pacific region. BAC’s achievement has once again shown that airports in our region are committed to and have taken actual action to reducing CO2 impact at airports.”
