Sharjah Airport becomes first carbon neutral airport in GCC


Sharjah Airport has become the first carbon-neutral airport in the GCC region and the second in the Middle East.

It attained the Level 3+ Neutrality accreditation from the Airport Carbon Accreditation programme, issued by Airports Council International (ACI).

This achievement comes after the airport's net carbon dioxide emissions over a full year amounted to zero. 

The accomplishment also marks an important milestone in Sharjah Airport’s journey towards continuous environmental and sustainable development.

"By reaching carbon-neutral status, the highest status currently, in the internationally-recognised Airport Carbon Accreditation programme, Sharjah Airport is firmly positioning itself as an environmental leader in the region and beyond," said Stefano Baronci, Director-General of ACI Asia-Pacific.

"We are grateful to the management team at Sharjah Airport for their continued commitment and active participation in ACI Asia-Pacific environmental initiatives and in support of working towards a new societal value."
