Malmö Airport works within several areas to minimise the environmental footprint caused by its operations. A reduction in carbon dioxide emissions is one of the areas in focus. Swedavia has a zero vision for its operational emissions at the airport.


Malmö Airport's mission is to meet passenger and freight requirements among the region's local community and business sector. In 2013, more than 2.12 million passengers used the airport.

Between 2005 and 2014, carbon dioxide emissions were cut by more than 90%.

Throughout 2010, passengers have had facilities in the terminal for sorting waste generated from goods bought at the airport.

Solar heating facility at the airport

Malmö Airport was the first airport in Sweden to install a solar heating facility featuring vacuum tubes.

Honey-bees at the airport

Since 2007, Malmö Airport has worked to find a method whereby bees and their honey can be used as indicators of air quality.
