London Gatwick Airport and Lyon-Saint Exupéry in France have been certified by the independent carbon management program Airport Carbon Accreditation for reaching carbon neutral status, supporting the European airport industry’s commitment to having 50 carbon neutral airports by 2030.

This brings the total number of carbon neutral airports in Europe to 27, with the first airport being Sweden’s Stockholm Arlanda in 2009. There are currently 116 airports in Europe working to address their CO₂ emissions.

Olivier Jankovec, director general at ACI Europe, commented, “Lyon Saint-Exupéry plays an invaluable role in its region and the whole of France. Its latest achievement of becoming carbon neutral speaks volumes about its commitment to sustainability and it is something that all of the team there can be justifiably proud of.

“London is Europe’s most popular destination by air and it is great to see Gatwick moving up to Level 3+ of the Airport Carbon Accreditation program – and becoming the second busiest carbon neutral airport in Europe.

“I congratulate (Gatwick CEO) Stewart Wingate and all the hardworking team at Gatwick on this significant moment in the ‘Decade of Change’ strategy and the extraordinary range of initiatives and activities they have undertaken to address the CO₂ emissions at the airport.”
