Asia-Pacific airports gathered in Gold Coast, Australia on April 19, 2016 to celebrate the Airport Carbon Accreditation’s 5thyear in the region.

The ceremony, namely “Airport Carbon Accreditation – fifth year in Asia-Pacific Celebration” was one of the highlights of the 11th ACI Asia-Pacific Regional Assembly, Conference & Exhibition, which was held from April 18 – 20, 2016.  Commenting on the anniversary, Mrs. Patti Chau, Regional Director of ACI Asia-Pacific said, “Five years ago, Airport Carbon Accreditation, originally introduced by ACI Europe, was extended to the Asia-Pacific region.  Since then, we have embarked on the journey towards carbon neutrality with our members. Today, we are proud to have 31 Asia-Pacific airports accredited at various levels of the program, representing more than 26% of passenger traffic in the region. I encourage more members to join the 155 airports worldwide to become Airport Carbon Accredited and demonstrate our airports’ dedication to sustainable growth.”
