Malmö Airport’s work to be a fossil fuel-free airport

2014-11-07, kl. 13:56

Klimatsamverkan Skåne, a regional partnership of organisations in the southern Swedish province of Scania that work with environmental issues, is holding a seminar day in Malmö on the member organisations’ mutual goal to achieve a 100 per cent fossil fuel-free Scania by 2020. The theme for the day is how people in an organisation can work towards the goal of being fossil fuel-free. Maria Bengtsson, environmental manager at Malmö Airport, will hold a presentation on how Swedavia is working to be fossil fuel-free by 2020.

Taking on the challenge of a 100 per cent fossil fuel-free Scania means working actively to eliminate the consumption of energy produced by fossil fuels:

  • No fossil fuel energy consumption in buildings. That means the member organisations do not use fossil fuel energy for heating and cooling in the buildings they own or lease.

  • No fossil fuel used in transport. That means the member organisations do not use fossil fuel in their own transport, travel or purchased transport services.

  • No consumption of electricity generated by fossil fuel. That means the member organisations do not use electricity generated by fossil fuel in their own operations and purchase some kind of eco-labelled electricity.

Some 60 companies, organisations and non-profit associations in the province of Scania have taken on this challenge, and that includes Malmö Airport.
