LinkedIn +

Aéroports de Lyon has announced it achieved a 21% reduction in CO2 emissions in 2014 compared to 2013 and has achieved Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA) Level 2. The airport has now launched a plan of action to achieve Level 3 in 2016, making the reduction of its environmental footprint one of its main priorities.

Lyon-Saint Exupéry is the only airport in France to have upheld the objectives of the Grenelle I and II (laws relating to the Grenelle Environment, a committee that defines actions for sustainable development) through a specific plan of action, and in 2011 it was the first airport in France to implement a 100% green power supply.

In order to obtain Level 3 certification, Aéroports de Lyon will work with the 200 companies based at Lyon-Saint Exupéry and has mobilized the resources needed to fulfill its objectives, including the creation of a Carbon Club in April 2015 that 20 companies have already joined. Ultimately, this club will represent over 50% of the 5,000 employees working in the companies based at the airport hub.

As part of its plan to achieve the ACA Level 3 certification, Aéroports de Lyon has already initiated two major projects: collaborative carbon management and the inter-company travel plan.
