Lux-Airport wants to make efforts to reduce its carbon footprint
By 2020, Luxembourg’s airport activities will not be harmful to the environment anymore, according to the ministry for sustainable development and infrastructure.
Structural adaptations are being implemented to achieve C02 neutral activities.
The CEO of Lux-Airport, Johan Vanneste, said that this could be achieved in two, two-and-a-half years, according to Paperjam.
The Airports Council International Europe has launched a process to encourage good environmental practices. Vanneste said that “we should soon achieve the first stage (out of four) of this environmental certification.” The authorities are currently conducting a study to determine the carbon footprint and find the main emission sources.
They have already implemented several small measures, such as using LED lights, and increase using electricity from renewable energy sources.
Several airports, such as those of Athens, Lyon and Rome, have already achieved carbon neutrality.
