Amsterdam Airport Schiphol has been unveiled as the host for the upcoming Airports Going Green (AGG) conference for 2016.
The AGG conference is one of the aviation industry’s leading forums on sustainability and has been held annually in Chicago, Illinois, since 2008. This year, the conference will take place at the Hilton Amsterdam Airport, on October 31 to November 2, as part of the airport’s centennial celebrations.
This year’s conference theme will be sustainable encounters with topics on emissions, the passenger journey, purpose over profit and the circular economy. Each of these themes will be addressed during a three-day program, which will also include keynote speeches from airports, airlines and other industries. Two of this year’s speakers are Peter Bakker, president of the World Business Council of Sustainable Development, and Bertrand Piccard, one of the pilots of Solar Impulse.
In addition, airport CEOs and government officials will meet to discuss joint solutions for the sustainability challenges that lie ahead. Airports that have done their utmost to reach their sustainability targets will be presented with their annual Airports Going Green Award.
