Leading the way in action for the environment.
Adelaide Airport is the major gateway to South Australia with approximately 7 million passengers and a further 14 million meet and greet visitors per year.
Adelaide Airport is committed to minimising its environmental footprint and achieving 100% regulatory compliance whilst being an industry leader in environmental sustainability.
Adelaide Airport has an internationally recognised carbon program. In 2013, it became the first airport in Australasia to receive Level 1 Airport Carbon Accreditation under the independently assessed global program run by Airports Council International (ACI). Accreditation to Level 2 was obtained in 2014, in recognition of Adelaide Airport’s success in reducing carbon emissions.
We are not only concerned with those activities under our direct control but of all airport users and seek to influence change through collaboration and negotiation with key stakeholders and awareness and education.
Our philosophy, underpinned in the company-wide Sustainability Policy, is to operate and develop our airports in accordance with the principles of sustainable development, recognising that the success of our organisation can be enhanced by conducting business in a way that is environmentally, socially and economically responsible. We believe that in choosing this path we can improve outcomes for our business, our stakeholders and the wider community for generations to come.
Adelaide Airports Sustainability Policy, Environment Policy and Low Carbon Statement form the foundation for its Environment Strategy, the overarching document driving environmental management at Adelaide Airport.
