Airport Carbon Accreditation

As part of this process, the airport joined the Airport Carbon Accreditation certification program. The airport has renewed the level the certificate Level 2: Reduction.

Quimper Bretagne Airport has just obtained Level 2 of the Airport Carbon Accreditation, proof of an effective reduction in greenhouse gas emissions and of the airport’s commitment in this regard.

The ACA Level 2 accreditation, entitled “Reduction”, indicates that the airport has set reduction targets and has implemented an action plan to reduce its emissions.

The airport must therefore demonstrate that it has reduced its carbon emissions from scopes 1 and 2, that is to say the emissions that are under the airport’s direct control.

Several actions have been put in place for a more efficient management of its carbon emissions: Relamping LEDS in the premises SSLIA and mechanical, installation of a heat pump and air destratification, replacing an old thermal track tractor with an electric one…

As a reminder: the Airport Carbon Accreditation is a global certification program in carbon management, implemented by ACI Europe. This certification assesses and recognizes the approach taken by airports to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions.

The Airport Carbon Accreditation program is the only carbon management certification program for airports. It assesses and acknowledges efforts to manage and reduce carbon emissions through six levels of certification:

1: Mapping = Determine the emission sources under the control of the airport and establish a carbon balance. Direct and indirect emissions are defined on the basis of the Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG Protocol).
2: Reduction = Identify emissions over the last 3 years by following a management plan, set targets and demonstrate that reduction targets have been met.
3: Optimization = The scope of application of the carbon footprint is broadened: third parties (for example the companies of the airport site) also contribute to levels 1 and 2.
3+: Neutrality = Offset residual emissions that cannot be reduced to achieve carbon neutrality of operations under airport control.
4: Transformation = Optimize the operations of the airport and its trading partners to achieve absolute emission reductions.
4+: Transition = Offset of residual emissions through reliable climate protection projects

The Airport Carbon Accreditation program was launched by ACI Europe to certify airports in their carbon management approach.

ACI Europe represents the European part of the International Airports Council (Airports Council International). Based in Brussels, ACI Europe represents more than 450 airports in 45 European countries.

ACI defends the interests of airport infrastructures and promotes professional excellence in the airport management and operations. By fostering cooperation among airports, global aeronautical organizations and financial partners, ACI contributes to the safety, security, efficiency and environmental responsibility of air transport.
