A global framework for environmental sustainability

An ambition shared by all airports operated by VINCI Airports

The airport sector is confronted with the environmental challenge, to which it must respond in a responsible manner. Fully aware of the situation, VINCI Airports is facing up to this challenge and was the first in its sector to step up to the plate in 2015 by announcing a global environmental strategy for all its 45 airports worldwide and that aims to drive environmental issues forward in each of the countries where VINCI Airports has operations.

The ambitious initial targets defined in 2015 have already been achieved. VINCI Airports is now reiterating its determination to become the environmental standard setter for the airport sector by announcing new commitments.


The 4 shared goals defined in 2015

  • To obtain and maintain ACA (Airport Carbon Accreditation) for all airports;

  • To reduce VINCI Airports energy intensity by 20% between now and 2020 (compared with 2013 levels);

  • To conduct survey on biodiversity issues for all airports;

  • To obtain ISO 14 001 certification for all airports


A strategy designed by and for our airports

In order to respond to their individual needs and constraints, the VINCI Airports environmental strategy was developed with input from all airports at the design stage and onwards. All the airport Environment managers contributed to the working group meetings held during 2015 to define:

  • the shared performance improvement program

  • the shared assessment program

The 7 areas covered by the performance improvement program

  • energy and greenhouse gas emissions

  • water consumption

  • waste management

  • noise

  • biodiversity

  • environmental impact prevention and reduction

  • implementation of an environmental management system
