For the sixth year Eindhoven Airport has been certified at "Level 3+ Neutrality": the highest attainable level of the Airport Carbon Accreditation program of ACI Europe (Airports Council International). ACI Europe investigates and recognizes the actions of participating airports to control and reduce their CO2 emissions. The program consists of four levels. The first level "Mapping" consists of compiling the CO2 footprint of airport processes (for example, the gas and electricity consumption of buildings). The next level is "Reduction" that confirms the reduction of CO2 emissions of those processes. The third level is involving partner companies in reducing their CO2 emissions at the airport (for example, ground handling equipment). The highest level is "Neutrality", the compensation of residual emissions. Eindhoven Airport has passed all four levels. In total, Eindhoven Airport has reduced over 1700 tons of CO2 compared to 2009. Our own residual emissions (611 tons of CO2) is compensated through a climate project in Tanzania. This climate project is investing in the installation of biogas plants for households in Tanzania. This project stimulates the transition from cooking on an open fire to cooking on biogas.
