Airports Company South Africa (ACSA) has achieved level 1 accreditation under the Airport Carbon Accreditation scheme (ACA) at four of its largest airports – O.R. Tambo, Cape Town, King Shaka and Port Elizabeth International Airports.
ACA is an independent, voluntary programme allowing the assessment and recognition of participating airports’ efforts to manage and reduce their CO₂ emissions.
The programme provides a unique common framework and tool for active carbon management at airports with measurable results. It covers the operational activities that contribute most to carbon emissions. It is site specific and can be used at any airport as part of its daily environmental management activity and long-term strategy as it helps to guide and support airport environmental management through a process of continual improvement and partnership with its airport stakeholders.
