Oct 27, 2016: The international climate protection organization CDP (Carbon Disclosure Project) has recognized Munich Airport (FMG) for its highly effective climate protection efforts.
In the 2016 Climate Change Report, the airport received a B rating, placing it among the sector leaders in transportation. “This places Munich Airport among the top companies in its industry in Germany, Austria and Switzerland,” said Susan Dreyer, CDP’s director for the DACH Region.
CDP who released this year’s Climate Change Report honored, at a conference at Munich Airport, the German, Austrian and Swiss companies that were successful in reducing carbon emissions and thus played a part in limiting the global temperature rise. “We are very pleased with this recognition of our efforts to reduce Munich Airport’s emissions,” said Dr. Michael Kerkloh, who presented FMG’s CO2 strategy at the conference.
He added, “Munich Airport made a commitment several years ago to the ambitious target of achieving carbon-neutral growth by 2020. That means that we want to limit our CO2 emissions to the levels of the base year 2005 despite increases in air traffic and the ongoing expansion of our airport. To get there, we are implementing many different innovative measures to protect the environment and limit the use of resources. We’re already a five-star airport, and are well on the way to turning those stars green.”
