Two more African airports become Airport Carbon accredited

ACI Africa announced the certification of two more airports in its region: Felix Houphouet Boigny Abidjan International Airport in Ivory Coast and Libreville Leon Mba International Airport in Gabon.

HAMMAMET, TUNISIA – As the countdown continues to the COP21 climate negotiations beginning in little over a month, the independent programme Airport Carbon Accreditation provided an update on its progress in Africa.

The Airport Carbon Accreditation programme certifies airports at 4 different levels of accreditation covering all stages of carbon management (Mapping, Reduction, Optimisation and Neutrality). It is independently administered, institutionally-endorsed and has already won praise from the International Civil Aviation Organisation (ICAO), the United Nation Environment Panel (UNEP) and the European Union (EU). As of November last year, the programme is active across the world.

At its 24th Annual Assembly, Regional Conference & Exhibition currently taking place in Hammamet, ACI Africa announced the certification of two more airports in its region: Felix Houphouet Boigny Abidjan International Airport in Ivory Coast and Libreville Leon Mba International Airport in Gabon.

Ali Tounsi, Director General ACI Africa commented “I am delighted to announce the certification of Felix Houphouet Boigny Abidjan International Airport and Libreville Leon Mba International Airport at the Mapping level. These 2 significant capital airports join Enfidha-Hammamet Airport in actively addressing their carbon emissions. Their certification speaks of the growing awareness of the issue of Climate Change among African airports and their actions are another step in the right direction by our industry, for our continent. Their certification also serves as a reminder to the wider world that Africa is part of this programme and we look forward to others following their example.”
