Phoenix Sky Harbor International achieves Level 2 ACI carbon accreditation

0

Phoenix Sky Harbor International Airport in Arizona in the USA has been recognized for its carbon reduction efforts by being accredited with Level 2 (Reduction) of the Airports Council International’s (ACI) Airport Carbon Accreditation program.

Phoenix Sky Harbor joined the program in 2014 with the aim of reducing its carbon footprint by 10% within six years. In the following year alone, the airport reduced its carbon footprint by more than 4%.

Decreasing energy consumption and using renewable energy are two key approaches in helping an airport to reduce its carbon footprint. Phoenix Sky Harbor achieved this by replacing traditional lighting with LED fixtures; upgrading heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems with new, more energy-efficient technology; and installing only energy-efficient appliances and fixtures in the newly-modernized Terminal 3 facility.
