The Henri Coanda Bucharest International Airport (AIHCB) has renewed its Airports Council International (ACI) Airport Carbon Accredited status at Level 2 Reduction, the National Bucharest Airports Company (CNAB) announced on Wednesday.
According to the company, the renewal of accredited status is proof of efforts made to reduce carbon emissions and shows once more that CNAB not only sees environment protection as a priority, but has achieved measurable results in this respect, especially since it achieved carbon emissions reduction under substantially more intense traffic conditions (passengers and airplanes).
AIHCB is the first Romanian airport to receive the Airport Carbon Accreditation, Level 1 – Mapping status in 2013 and reach top 90 international airports to meet the analysis and carbon emissions international criteria.
The Airport Carbon Accreditation is one of the most important ACI programs, managed by an independent board with members from European Commission, UN Environment Program, International Civil Aviation Organization, European Conference for Civil Aviation, and the Eurocontrol European Organization for the Safety of Air Navigation.
Established in 1991, Airports Council International (ACI) is the only global trade representative of the world’s airports representing airports interests with Governments and international organizations. It develops standards, policies and recommended practices for airports, and provides information and training opportunities to raise standards around the world.
