Making the environmental transition a success
Mobility is key to the prosperity of regions and the future generations. Aware of this challenge, and committed to decarbonizing air mobility, VINCI Airports is leading a rapid and sustainable environmental transition on its network. We are maximizing its potential, in the service of sustainable growth and ecological transition, in partnership with the regions that entrust us with their airports.
Three pillars of our environmental strategy
All the airports in our network are committed to an ambitious and concrete environmental transition path, and we involve the entire airport ecosystem in this approach, working with partners on a local and international scale. Our environmental plan is built around three priorities:
- Act for the climate
- Preserve biodiversity and natural environments
- Optimize resources through the circular economy
A shared ambition for all airports in the VINCI Airports network
The airport sector is faced with the environmental challenge, to which it must respond responsibly. Fully aware of these issues, VINCI Airports is facing up to this challenge and was the first airport operator back in 2016 to adopt an international environmental strategy to achieve net zero emission for the entire network by 2050.
Our priority is to decarbonize our operations and, more broadly, to support the decarbonization of the airport sector, in conjunction with local authorities. This ambition for transformation inspires all our projects, investments and innovations, in both the contracting and operating phases.
“To tackle the climate emergency, we must implement and step up the pace of all initiatives able to reduce the quantity of CO2 in the atmosphere. ”Environment and sustainable development Director at VINCI Concessions
The ambitious initial targets set in 2015 have already been achieved. VINCI Airports is today reaffirming its determination to become the environmental reference in the airport sector by announcing new commitments.
VINCI Airports and its network are transforming, investing and innovating for the airport sector. Discover some examples of the actions deployed in our infrastructures.
