The only accredited airport in Uruguay, Carrasco International Airport, has made it all the way to Level 2 Reduction of Airport Carbon Accreditation. To give an example of their Climate Action: most recently, the airport made the headlines with the opening of a brand new, 0.5 MW photo-voltaic plant at its premises. In its first stage, the solar plant occupies a one hectare plot at entrance of the terminal and consists of 1,540 photo-voltaic panels distributed in seven rows from north to south. Its metal structure has state-of-the-art solar tracking technology, which allows the movement of the panels during the day and a 30% improvement from the sun’s energy to traditional fixed panels.

We keep our fingers crossed for the airport's journey to carbon neutrality!
