At Swedavia, we decided early on to be really good at environmental issues in our area of responsibility, that is, running airports. Today we are an international role model in developing climate-smart airports.
The focus of Swedavia’s environmental work is to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, minimise energy use and reduce atmospheric emissions and discharges to water from our own operations. We also work systematically with aviation noise issues.
Along with these concrete measures, we take a broader industry perspective on environmental issues. We monitor the overall environmental impact of a flight and are a strong driver in the work focused on aviation emissions and noise exposure.
In 2006, Swedavia was one of the first large Swedish companies that chose to become climate-neutral. This also means that Bromma Stockholm Airport’s operations today are run without contributing any negative impact to climate change. This is a positive trend that we are proud of, but one that we will also continue.
How we are regulated
The airport has a permit for running its operations, in compliance with environmental laws. The permit determines the framework for how and to what extent operations may be run. The permit sets a number of specific conditions. Most conditions at Bromma are related to noise.
Among other conditions, there is a noise curve that specifies what noise levels are allowed in the vicinity of the airport. There is also a condition for how much noise a single aircraft may make in order for it to land at the airport.
Along with the permit and its conditions, the airport is also governed by its agreement with the City of Stockholm. Among other conditions, the agreement sets the number of take-offs and landings allowed.
