Certified Green Airport

Certified Green Airport

As the central nodes in our transportation networks, airports have a considerable environmental impact. The GC-Mark is a seal of recognition for airports that have implemented an effective environmental policy.

According to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), air travel and transport accounts for two percent of all human generated greenhouse gas emissions, with airports contributing five percent to the overall aviation figure. Fortunately, an increasing number of airports are looking to improve their environmental performance by reducing emissions, reducing waste and optimizing their use of natural resources.

Airport operators who wish to obtain the GC-Mark “Green Airport” must have implemented an environmental management system that meets or exceeds the requirements of ISO 14001. Moreover, qualified DQS auditors will evaluate the policy, measures and documentation regarding CO2-emissions, noise levels, community relations, waste management, supplier management and water & energy use. The inspection takes place in the form of an on-site audit. After a successful audit, the GC-Mark certificate and logo will be awarded, with a validity of one year.

With the GC-Mark Certified Green Airport, airport operators have an opportunity to:

  • Demonstrate their commitment to the environment
  • Identify chances to minimize adverse effects and to increase efficiency
  • Improve the reputation of the aviation sector and build bridges with the community
