In congratulating the accredited airports, Mrs. Patti Chau, Regional Director of ACI Asia-Pacific said, “Airport Carbon Accreditation was extended to the Asia-Pacific region in November 2011 from ACI Europe. By end of last year, it has become a global programme and is now available to airports in all 5 ACI regions. In Asia-Pacific 25 airports have already been accredited under the Programme. I wish to congratulate these airports for their strong commitment in carbon emissions management and working towards carbon neutrality.”
