For the fifth year in a row, Göteborg Landvetter Airport has been certified at the highest level of the European industry standard for its work to reduce carbon dioxide emissions.

“We continue our dedicated work to achieve our target of zero emissions of fossil carbon dioxide by 2020. This shows that we are on the right path and that we are a world leader. It also strengthens our position as we start negotiations for a new environmental permit in March,” says Maria Gelin, environmental manager at Göteborg Landvetter Airport.

Göteborg Landvetter Airport is one of 17 airports around the world that are certified at the highest level of the Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA) programme. ACA is a European standard for how airports manage their carbon dioxide emissions, and consists of four levels: 1. Mapping of emissions, 2. Reduction of emissions, 3. Optimisation of emissions, and 4. Climate neutrality.

The fact that Göteborg Landvetter Airport has been accredited at the highest level for the fifth year in a row means that Swedavia at Göteborg Landvetter Airport is entirely climate-neutral regarding emissions from its own operations.  The highest level is also confirmation that Göteborg Landvetter Airport works actively with other companies at the airport to reduce their CO emissions as well.
