Airport climate work certified at the highest level for fourth year in a row

2013-06-27, kl. 11:18

Bromma Stockholm Airport has now had its climate work certified for the fourth year in a row at the highest level, 3 +, of the Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA) programme.

The certification is for a three-year period and indicates that the airport meets the requirements for working according to a long-term plan to reduce its environmental impact. 

The airport is working together with Swedavia’s other airports to achieve the objective of running operations that produce zero fossil carbon dioxide emissions by 2020.

In June, along with achieving the highest level of ACA certification, which is confirmation that the airport is climate-neutral in terms of carbon dioxide emissions from its own operations, Bromma Stockholm Airport was also certified for a three-year period. That means the airport is certified through June 2016, when a new certification process will be completed in order to maintain this accreditation. Airports usually apply for certification one year at a time.

“We are very pleased and proud to get this certification as proof that we work hard with a focus on results in our environmental work and give high priority to environmental issues at the airport and at Swedavia,” says Jenny Svärd, environmental and quality manager at Bromma Stockholm Airport.

In 2012 Bromma Stockholm Airport implemented a number of environmental improvements and introduced environmental requirements for taxis, which means that taxis serving the airport must be “green” or environmentally-friendly vehicles. The airport’s employees have been trained in eco-driving, and the vehicle fleet is continually being updated.
