Cologne/Bonn Airport was awarded the so-called Airport Carbon Accreditation last week. The certificate is intended to certify that measures are being taken to record and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.

First, the CO2 footprint is created, which provides information about CO2 emissions. Reduction targets are then set and tracked. “We have big plans, are reducing emissions step by step and are consistently continuing on the path we have chosen,” says Thilo Schmid, CEO of Flughafen Köln/Bonn GmbH. “We are currently building new photovoltaic systems and investing in a biomass power plant,” says Schmid.
