Navigating the pathway to cleaner, greener Australian airports

Clean energy and infrastructure: The pathway to airport sustainability identifies 15 best practice initiatives with the potential to immediately cut the carbon footprint of Australia’s airports. More than half of the initiatives – all of which use proven technologies – can address the Scope 1 emissions directly related to the airport operations. The majority of the initiatives relate to energy efficiency: low energy baggage handling systems having the potential to reduce carbon emissions from 40-75 per cent, while energy efficient airport lighting upgrades and the use of ground source heat pumps each have the potential to cut emissions by as much as 50 per cent.
