Bao’an airport passes first level of Airport Carbon Accreditation
    2018-08-17  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

THE Shenzhen Bao’an International Airport has passed the first level of the Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA) conferred by the Airport Council International (ACI), becoming the second airport on the Chinese mainland after the Beijing Capital International Airport to pass this accreditation.

The achievement also signifies that the Bao’an airport’s management of carbon emissions is compliant with international standards and is recognized as such by international institutions, industry analysts said.

Airport Carbon Accreditation is a global carbon management program for airports across the world that independently assesses and recognizes airports’ efforts to manage and reduce their carbon dioxide emissions. There are four different levels of accreditation: mapping, reduction, optimization and neutrality.

As one of the largest airports in China, the Bao’an airport has played an active role in the piloting of carbon emission permits trading in recent years and has completed the work of Shenzhen’s carbon emission audit and carbon performance twice.

Earlier this year, the airport also completed carbon source identification and carbon accounting in accordance with international standards, forming a carbon emission inventory. According to official statistics, the airport’s carbon emissions per passenger were reduced by 17 percent in 2017 compared with 2016.

The accreditation certificate also demonstrates the Bao’an airport’s longstanding commitment to ecological civilization and energy conservation and emission reduction, the airport said in a statement.

Faced with the pressure of increasing carbon emissions brought by ever growing passenger throughput and stricter carbon intensity control from the government, the Bao’an airport has created a “multifunction energy system” by introducing an energy management system and an energy management platform.

In addition, the airport managed to cut carbon dioxide emissions and fuel consumption while the aircraft glides after upgrading the dual runway independent operation mode.

The airport also has set up a photovoltaic power station with the largest installed capacity in China, completed the work of transforming a dozen LEDs, expanded the use of new-energy vehicles and installed charging piles in the airport. Thanks to these efforts, the airport reduced carbon dioxide emissions by 142,000 tons in 2017.

The airport plans to introduce a carbon emission management system and will carry out new carbon emission reduction measures to adopt green, low-carbon and environmentally friendly concepts in every part of the airport’s construction, according to the statement. (Yang Mei)
