Clermont-Ferrand Auvergne Airport Obtains ACA Level 2 Certification under ACI’s Carbon Emissions Reduction Program

Clermont-Ferrand Auvergne Airport has obtained ACA (Airport Carbon Accreditation) level 2 accreditation from the ACI (Airports Council International), the only program with an international dimension to reduce greenhouse gas emissions specific to airports. The airport thus confirms its long-term commitment to the fight against climate change.

Clermont-Ferrand Auvergne Airport has been committed since 2015 to the ACA program, Airport Carbon Accreditation, an international and voluntary program to reduce airport greenhouse gas emissions. This certification marks a new stage in the platform’s long-term commitment to environmental responsibility, under the ambition of VINCI Airports, the leading airport operator, to develop an integrated environmental policy throughout its worldwide network.

This new level of certification is a recognition of the relevance of VINCI Airports’ global environmental policy, applied to all the airports in its network.

Level 2 of the ACA program, entitled “Reduction”, requires the development of a carbon management plan with an emissions reduction target. The airport must demonstrate that it has reduced its Scopes 1 and 2 carbon emissions, i.e. emissions that are under the direct control of the airport, from a three-year rolling average of emissions.

The initiatives that have led to the achievement of level 2 are the rationalization of electricity consumption (monitoring of consumption, replacement of lighting with LEDs, etc.) and the phasing out of old vehicles, replaced by electric vehicles. They have enabled a reduction in GHG emissions of 7.8% between the 2020 reporting and the average of the 2017, 2018 and 2019 reportings.

This new level of certification is a recognition of the relevance of VINCI Airports’ global environmental policy, applied to all the airports in its network. Reaching level 2 attests to the actions implemented by Clermont-Ferrand airport to manage and reduce CO2 emissions, and is a reward for a collective effort to achieve this. The airport continues its efforts to achieve level 3 (“Optimization”), which requires broadening the scope of action to include the airport’s partners in the effort to reduce carbon emissions (scope 3).
