Earth Hour – Swedavia sets a challenge!

2013-03-19, kl. 08:32

Every hour is an environmental hour for Swedavia, which through proactive work has reduced its energy use by about 20 per cent and carbon dioxide emissions by almost 60 per cent since 2005. Saturday, March 23, is Earth Hour, and Swedavia is taking the opportunity to challenge all passengers the entire week to carbon-offset their trips.

The challenge will be underway March 18 to March 31. If a passenger carbon-offsets his or her outbound flight, Swedavia will offset the flight home. This offset is made using a service offered on Swedavia’s airport websites, under “Before travelling" and at information desks at Stockholm Arlanda Airport.

The money goes via Tricorona Climate Partner to purchase carbon offsets from one of three UN-approved CDM and Gold Standard projects in India and China.

“Swedavia has a long-term commitment to reducing the environmental impact produced in connection with our operations. We are always working to reduce our carbon dioxide emissions, and then we offset the emissions we have not yet managed to reduce,” says Lena Wennberg, sustainability and environmental manager at Swedavia.
