Three Indian airportsThree Indian airports have been recognized by a global airports body for significant progress in managing carbon emissions, Press Trust of India (PTI) reported.

 

Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport and Hyderabad’s Bengaluru International Airport and Rajiv Gandhi International Airport have been upgraded to Level 3 ‘Optimisation’ by Airports Council International (ACI) Asia-Pacific.

 

The airports have been certified by ACI’s Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA),
a scheme to assess the progress of airports in managing their greenhouse gas
emissions and recognise different levels of achievement.

 

The announcement was made at the 8th ACI Airport Exchange held in Doha
earlier this week.

 

“The ACA was extended to the Asia-Pacific region of ACI in November 2011 and we have seen the programme gain real momentum here in the last two years,” said ACI Asia-Pacific regional director Patti Chau in a statement.

 

“These airports demonstrate our region’s growing commitment to reducing the aviation sector’s impact on environment and sustainable development,” said Chau.
