VINCI Airports’ network continues to decarbonise its operations: in Cambodia, Phnom Penh (VINCI Airports/VINCI Concessions) reached Level 3, “Optimisation”, on the Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA) programme; in Mexico, the 13 airports operated by OMA were awarded Level 2, “Reduction”, only 10 months after Level 1.

In line with VINCI Airports’ environmental policy and its aim to achieve net zero emissions by 2050, the airports in Mexico have taken several concrete measures including installation of solar panels, which produce 18% of the electricity the airports consume in a year, while introducing innovative batteries enabling them to use the energy over longer periods of time. Phnom Penh airport’s Level 3 accreditation, “Optimisation”, attests that it has engaged third parties in efforts to reduce its carbon footprint (airlines and service providers including independent ground handling companies, catering companies, air traffic controllers and other organisations active in the airport). VINCI Airports is the first international contributor to Airports Council International (ACI)’s ACA programme with 51 accredited airports, including four at the top level, ACA 5, in Portugal and France.
