Building on last year’s COP21, where new global targets to limit climate change were agreed during last year’s climate negotiations, the next round of these talks – COP22 – has just been completed in Marrakesh, Morocco.
During a special ceremony at the event, Marrakesh-Menara and Mohammed V International airport in Casablanca both became certified at the Mapping level of Airport Carbon Accreditation, the global carbon standard for the airport industry. The ACC scheme offers four levels of accreditation in all, with Mapping positioned as the entry level.
At last year’s COP21, the European airport industry pledged to have 50 carbon neutral airports by 2030. In the past year, five more airports in Europe have reached that goal, bringing the total number in Europe to 25.
