Riga International achieves ACI Airport Carbon Accreditation

Riga International Airport in Latvia has received the Airport Carbon Accreditation Level 1 Mapping certificate from ACI after taking steps to monitor and reduce its carbon emissions.

Andris Liepiņš, chairman of the board of Riga International Airport, said, “Participation in this program and obtaining the certificate were among the environmental goals set by Riga Airport at the beginning of 2015.

“By now we have accumulated the information on the greenhouse gas emissions generated by the airport’s activities and our further steps will be directed toward greater environmental friendliness. With a view of improving the environmental situation, several projects have been implemented this year, including the transfer of the airport heating system to using woodchips as the main fuel and the installation of aircraft connections to the electrical network.”

As part of its efforts to reduce its carbon footprint, Riga Airport also achieved the internationally recognized ISO 14001:2004 Environmental Management System Certificate in the autumn of this year.

Airport Carbon Accreditation is an independent four-stage environmental program administered by WSP Parsons Brinckerhoff, an international consultancy appointed by ACI Europe to enforce the accreditation criteria for airports on an annual basis. There are currently 138 airports participating in the program globally.
