Copenhagen Airport goes green with sustainability goals

With sustainability becoming a priority for many travellers, Copenhagen Airport has launched an ambitious new climate strategy in which they vow to become a carbon-neutral airport this year. 

This will be realised by means of continued efforts to reduce the emissions over which the airport has control, such as energy and fuel consumption and staff business trips, as well as the implementation of climate compensation to neutralise the airport’s remaining emissions by supporting projects, in Denmark and other countries, which reduce carbon emissions.

By 2030, Copenhagen Airport aims to be emission-free with emission-free transport to and from the airport. This will be realised partly by continued investment in solar panel systems and support of green conversion of land transport by improving the charging infrastructure for electric vehicles both within and outside the airport area.

Ultimately, the aim is for the airport to be entirely emission-free by 2050, with plans to realise this ambition through strategic partnerships across the aviation industry, decision-makers and researchers, aiming at greater availability of sustainable fuel and the development of climate-friendly technologies.
