Brisbane Airport Corporation (BAC), the operator of Brisbane Airport in Queensland, Australia, has released its first sustainability report demonstrating its plans for operating the airport in a sustainable manner, without adverse environmental or community impacts.
The FY16 Sustainability Report, developed under the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Framework, highlights some of BAC’s recent initiatives, including improved waste management practices and community engagement and philanthropy work.
Julieanne Alroe, CEO and managing director, BAC, said, “BAC has always adopted a global perspective on sustainability which reaches well beyond risk and compliance. Instead our focus is on the responsible development of the airport in a way that meets the needs of present generations and is viewed with pride by future generations.
“Following the outcomes of the COP21 meeting in Paris on Climate Change in December 2015, we commenced developing our Climate Change Adaptation Plan with a focus on reducing energy consumption and carbon emissions.
“We take the risk and impacts of climate change seriously so implementing a long-term strategy to reduce the inevitable impacts and to future-proof the airport is of great importance.”
