Green Airports Recognition 2024

The ACI Asia-Pacific & Middle East Green Airports Recognition 2024 awarded 12 airports for their achievements in biodiversity and nature-based sustainability solutions.

Airports Council International (ACI) Asia-Pacific & Middle East announced the results of the Green Airports Recognition (GAR) 2024, recognising 12 airports in Asia-Pacific and the Middle East for their outstanding accomplishments in sustainability projects.

The theme for the Green Airports Recognition 2024 is Biodiversity and Nature-Based Solutions.

The ACI Asia-Pacific & Middle East program encouraged airports to submit their best practices. These practices included using nature-based solutions to preserve biodiversity at their facilities. Examples include planting trees for carbon reduction and social benefits, marine life conservation efforts, wetland and ecological restoration, in-house horticulture and nurseries, and wildlife management strategies that ensure safe operations.

The program awarded recognition in three categories – “Platinum”, “Gold”, and “Silver” – based on various airport size categories and established criteria.

They honored the recognized airports at the ACI Asia-Pacific & Middle East / ACI World Annual General Assembly, Conference and Exhibition (WAGA 2024) held in Riyadh, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.

Congratulating the recognised airports, Mr. Stefano Baronci, Director General of ACI Asia-Pacific & Middle East said, “We received an overwhelming submissions from across the region and selecting the 12 winners was no easy feat. From marine life conservation, wetland restoration to wildlife species management and carbon removal efforts, these airports have demonstrated exemplary commitment to environmental stewardship. Their innovative approaches serve as models for the aviation industry. Congratulations to all recognised airports, and we look forward to continuing to work together to build a more sustainable future for aviation.”

The ACI Asia-Pacific & Middle East Green Airports Recognition 2024 continues to showcase the airports setting the standard for sustainable practices, demonstrating the industry’s commitment to environmental preservation and responsible business practices.
