Finavia Reaches Net Zero Carbon Emission Status at Four Airports

Finavia has announced it has reached net zero carbon emissions in its operations at four airports, Ivalo, Kittilä, Rovaniemi and Kuusamo.

The company, which has achieved the status through a combination of the reduction of energy consumption in terminals and the commitment to fuelling airport vehicles & machinery with renewable diesel and motor oils, aims to reach net zero for each of its airports by the start of 2026.

Finavia is considered a pioneer in sustainable development in the aviation industry and has worked long-term in order to reduce its carbon emissions
Mikko Viinikainen, Finavia’s Senior Manager, Sustainability & Environment, said:

“Net zero carbon emissions is an ambitious climate target, and we are proud to have achieved it at four of our airports. By switching to exclusively using renewable energy, we have reduced our carbon emissions by 98% in ten years at Ivalo, Kittilä, Kuusamo and Rovaniemi airports. Our operations at all of our 20 airports have been carbon neutral since 2019.”

The four airports have been certified in the international Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA) programme, and have subsequently been awarded the Sustainable Travel Finland certificate by Visit Finland.

Jonna Pietilä, Finavia's Vice President, Lapland Airports, said:

“Promoting sustainable travel is a common goal for the entire Lapland region’s tourism operators. The sustainable tourism certificates awarded to four of our airports in the north are proof of the work we are actively doing to minimise our environmental impact.”
