By implementing cost effective carbon mitigation action to conserve environment and reduce its adverse impact on the society and the larger ecosystem, AAI is committed towards the reduction of Green House Gas (GHG). Airports Council International (ACI), an organisation representing the world`s airports has announced that four AAI airports – Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose International Airport, Kolkata; Biju Patnaik International Airport, Bhubaneswar; Lal Bhadaur Shastri International Airport, Varanasi and the Trivandrum International Airport—have successfully completed the first step of instituting an environment policy and carbon mapping as per the Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA) Programme. The policy includes a framework to reduce emissions and develop a Carbon Footprint mapping for the airport’s own emissions which are under its control.
