Vilnius Airport in Lithuania has been awarded Airport Council International’s (ACI) Level 1 Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA) certificate in Mapping in recognition of its efforts to monitor its carbon footprint.

Artūras Stankevičius, director of Vilnius Airport, said, “While preparing for the accreditation process we learned that the airport’s exact carbon dioxide emission amounted to 3,486 tons in 2014. This figure was a starting point for future operations, as we are planning to compare the data obtained every year and take all possible measures to control and reduce the carbon dioxide emissions to ensure that the environmental impact of Vilnius Airport is as small as possible.”

ACI’s ACA program is independently audited and has four levels of accreditation including mapping, reduction, optimization and neutrality.
