The airport is now rated at the second-highest level – ‘Optimisation’ – on the four-level scale measuring progress towards climate-neutral operations. Munich Airport is documenting its emissions in accordance with the internationally recognised Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG). This will be followed by gradual reductions in emissions based on a voluntary commitment. The airport plans to achieve this mainly through innovative technologies, initially without purchasing carbon certificates. Later, when all of the technical possibilities have been fully utilised, the unavoidable remaining CO2 emissions will be offset through projects in the airport region. With climate protection firmly anchored in the corporate strategy, Munich Airport aims to reach the top ACA classification – ‘neutrality – by 2030 and has defined 2050 as the target year for ‘net carbon zero’.
