Salvador Bahia Airport met 33 out of the 36 criteria assessed, registered a score of 88.85% and was considered to have sustainable actions at an advanced level.

Previously, Salvador Bahia Airport joined VINCI Airports’ environmental programme, AirPact, and since then has become: Brazil’s first airport with zero waste to landfill; Brazil’s first airport with zero liquid discharge – 100% of treated wastewater is recycled in toilets and air-cooling towers; a 100% LED-lighting airport; and accredited with ACI’s Airport Carbon Accreditation level 2.

Salvador Airport is to continue developing with other sustainable projects, such as a 4.2 MW peak self-consumption PV park.
