Birmingham Airport announces latest step to become carbon zero

Solihull Editorial 17th May, 2022   0

BIRMINGHAM Airport has announced its latest step to become net zero by 2033.

The airport said it is now using electricity generated solely from renewable sources for all its retail and food concessions.

Tom Denton, head of sustainability for Birmingham Airport, said: “This reflects our sustainability ambitions and is a small but important step towards our eventual goal of net zero carbon by 2033.

“We’re pleased but, with so much more work still to do, it’s still way too early to celebrate.”

In recent years Birmingham Airport has reduced the carbon emissions it controls by around a third.

The airport says it has done this by introducing low-carbon alternatives into its operation, including solar, electric vehicle transition and other energy-efficiency measures.
