VINCI Airports' sustainable development policy is part of a global performance approach.


Our airport obtained the renewal of the ACA (Airport Carbon Accreditation) Level 2 in December 2020.

This level 2 entitled "Reduction" of the Airport Carbon Accreditation program involves the measurement of the carbon footprint as well as an external audit of the data. This step reflects VINCI Airports' commitment to ensure that all airports in its network win and retain Airport Carbon Accreditation.

VINCI Airports has implemented a global environmental strategy called AirPact, which sets out strong commitments for 2020.

Airport Carbon Accreditation is the only institutional carbon management certification program for airports. It recognizes and accredits the carbon management and reduction initiatives implemented by airports. There are six levels of certification. 


The 4 common objectives defined in 2015

Obtain and maintain ACA (Airport Carbon Accreditation) accreditations for all airports;
Reduce VINCI Airports' energy intensity by 20% by 2020 (compared to 2013);
Carry out a diagnosis of biodiversity issues for all airports;
Obtain ISO 14 001 certification for all airports
