Budapest Airport cuts carbon emissions to half of 2011 level

Budapest Liszt Ferenc International Airport cut its carbon emissions further in 2021, reducing it to half of the level measured in 2011, with emissions per passenger down at one third of emissions ten years ago, the airport operator said on Tuesday.

In 2021, the airport started implementing a “zero carbon action plan”, scheduled to achieve zero net carbon emissions by 2035, the operator said. It also received a 3+ carbon accreditation last year, awarded to only 58 carbon neutral airports worldwide, the statement said.

Budapest Airport has been cooperating with 40 partners in the Greenairport programme launched in 2015, aimed at reducing their carbon footprint and general environmental impact, the statement said.
