Turin Airport has been certified at Level 1 (Mapping) of the "Airport Carbon Accreditation" environmental sustainability program, the common framework for the active management of emissions at airports through measurable results promoted by ACI Europe, the European airports’ industry trade association.
The initiative aims to improve the environmental sustainability of European airports through coordinated actions of environmental protection, by the reduction of energy consumption and contrasting the CO2 emissions produced by airports in the atmosphere. The process is built on four different levels: mapping, reduction, optimization and neutralization of emissions.
Level 1 consists in the development of the Carbon Footprint, i.e. the conversion into CO2 equivalent of the energy resources used by the Airport, a first step to subsequently identify actions aimed at offsetting emissions.
