Hyderabad airport becomes carbon-neutral

Hyderabad’s Rajiv Gandhi International Airport has become the second airport in India to be classified as carbon-neutral.

The hub has now achieved carbon-neutral status (Level 3+), as certified by the Airport Council International’s (ACI) Airport Carbon Accreditation programme. The UK’s Manchester International Airport also achieved Level 3+ status.

“The… status awarded by ACI under its Airport Carbon Accreditation programme is a significant achievement for Hyderabad Airport,” said SGK Kishore, CEO of GHIAL, the airport’s operator. “This achievement is an outcome of our sustained efforts towards environment by proactive energy conservation measures, generation of renewable energy, carbon sinking through extensive greenbelt and various other environment protection measures.

“Through this, GHIAL has demonstrated its commitment to support the government of India’s resolution on the nation’s carbon footprint,” he added.

Patti Chau, ACI’s regional director for Asia Pacific, commented; “Congratulations to Hyderabad Airport’s team for the excellent achievement in becoming carbon-neutral. We are proud of their accomplishment which is no easy task. It demonstrates the airport’s continuous commitment to reduce its environmental impacts and reduce and offset emissions.”

Hyderabad’s Rajiv Gandhi International Airport welcomes around 12 million passengers per year. Delhi’s Indira Gandhi International Airport has already achieved carbon-neutral status.
