Macau Airport receives ACI Airport Carbon Accreditation for the fourth-consecutive year


The Macau International Airport (MIA) was awarded ACI Airport Carbon Accreditation at Level 2 “Reduction” for the fourth-consecutive year.
The city’s airport succeeded in reducing its greenhouse gas emissions by 23.6 per cent last year, as compared to emissions recorded in 2012.
MIA also revealed that it has exceeded its 5-year Environmental Management Plan (2014-2018) target of ‘reducing carbon emissions per aircraft movement by 20 per cent from 2012 levels’.
The plan covers five areas including green planning, energy efficiency, water quality and saving, waste management, air quality and carbon emissions.
Meanwhile, the airport’s electricity consumption last year dropped by 8.63 per cent compared to 2015, resulting in savings of around MOP3 million (US$373,707).
The remaining targets for the 5-year plan include: ‘Reduce power consumption of 2.8 million kWh per year (equivalent to MOP3.7 million per year)’ and ‘annual waste recycled and treated reaches 51,900 kg per year in 2018’.
