The gateway to the Turkish Riviera, Milas-Bodrum Airport obtained Level 1 ‘Mapping’ certification. It’s the sixth airport in TAV Airports’ portfolio to receive Airport Carbon Accreditation certification, the only institutionally-endorsed, global carbon management programme for airports.
TAV Milas-Bodrum GM Iclal Kayaoglu said “Minimizing the effects of our operations on the environment is a core ambition for us at TAV. We believe that contributing to efforts to counter climate change is our responsibility to future generations. Joining Airport Carbon Accreditation is a significant step in the right direction for Milas-Bodrum Airport, as the programme provides a solid framework to optimize and eventually eliminate emissions. Our aim is to become carbon neutral by 2030 at the latest.”
ACI EUROPE Director General, Olivier Jankovec commented: “The successful accreditation of Milas Bodrum Airport within Airport Carbon Accreditation is a prime example of the airport industry’s unwavering commitment to addressing its emissions through thick and thin. In the midst of a devastating crisis, continued investment in decarbonisation is no small feat. I would like to congratulate everyone at TAV Airports who has had a hand in this excellent achievement. Well done!”
As of May 2021, five other airports operated by TAV are Airport Carbon Accredited. Izmir, Ankara and Antalya airports hold Level 3+ ‘Neutrality’, Enfidha-Hammamet Airport is at Level 3 ‘Optimisation’ and Zagreb Airport at Level 2 ‘Reduction’.
TAV Airports, already part of the ACI Europe initiative to achieve net zero emissions by 2050 has recently committed to become carbon-neutral by 2030, as part of the Groupe ADP “Airports for Trust” covenant announced in January this year.
