DECARBONIZATION: BOLOGNA AIRPORT FINANCES ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION PROJECTS IN KENIA, PERU AND INDONESIA
The commitment of Bologna Airport on the issues of sustainable development and reduction of the environmental impact does not stop.
During 2021, the company reduced its total CO2 emissions by 5% compared to 2019 (last year pre-Covid) and offset 100% of the emissions generated directly and indirectly at the airport through the purchase of "carbon credits". The "carbon credit" is a negotiable stock, or a certificate equivalent to one ton of CO2 not emitted or absorbed through the financing of an environmental protection project created with the aim of reducing global emissions of greenhouse gases, responsible for global warming.
In detail, thanks to the collaboration with Shell Energy Italia, Bologna Airport offset the emission into the atmosphere of 2,579 tons of CO2 produced by the combustion of the methane gas used for the operation of the airport, through the support of green projects in Kenya, Peru and Indonesia.
Furthermore, through the technical support of CO2 Advisor, Bologna Airport offset another 2,097 tons of CO2 produced mainly by the airport's thermal plants, financing a hydroelectric energy production project in Indonesia.
The offsetting of CO2 emissions produced by the airport and the financing of corresponding decarbonisation projects continue also for 2022, as part of Marconi's adhesion to ACI Europe's commitment to "Net Zero Carbon Emissions from Airport Operations" and more articulated AdB Sustainability Plan, which includes, among the various activities, major investments in renewable energy and energy efficiency.
