Reductions Achieved in Europe

All this talk about ‘tonnes of CO2’ can sometimes make the reductions achieved hard to visualise. How much energy does a ton of CO2 equate to? On this page, we try to give you some context on the collective reductions airports have reported for this year and previous years.
