Executive airport earns higher accreditation


TAG Farnborough Airport is awarded higher level of Airport Carbon Accreditation

TAG Farnborough
Airport has been awarded Airport Carbon
Accreditation at the ‘Reduction’ level. To achieve this, the airport provided
evidence of a cut in the carbon emissions under its direct control between 2008
and the end of 2010. The airport is working towards the goal of Airport Carbon
Accreditation at the ‘Neutrality’ level.

Miles Thomas, TAG
Farnborough Airport
environment manager said:  “As
the UK’s only dedicated
business aviation gateway, TAG
Farnborough Airport
is a unique facility with the same responsibilities on sustainable issues as
any other airport. Through Airport Carbon Accreditation our next environmental
challenge is to develop carbon reduction strategies in conjunction with our
tenants and service providers.”

Jankovec, director general ACI EUROPE said “The actions taken by TAG Farnborough Airport to reduce its own CO2
emissions speak volumes about how seriously the airport is treating the issue.
Business aviation plays an important role in the grand spectrum of air travel
and airports with strong credentials are vital to attracting foreign direct
investment for the region they serve. I congratulate TAG Farnborough
Airport on advancing up a
level of Airport Carbon Accreditation and on their ongoing proactive
environmental strategy”
