Qatar's Hamad International Airport (HIA) has successfully retained its Airport Carbon Accreditation at Level 3 for another year. 

HIAs renewal comes after successfully reaching Level 3 Optimisation status last year and becoming the first airport in the GCC and only the second in the Middle East and North Africa region to reach Level 3 accreditation.

It claims that its airport-wide energy reduction programmes and collaborative approach with airport stakeholders to manage third-party emissions have "resulted in measurable change".
Hamad's chief operating officer, Badr Mohammed Al Meer, says: We are committed more than ever on reflecting global environmental standards and minimising environmental impact.

"We are proud to successfully work in line with ACIs standards and will continue to minimise our use of natural resources, control emissions and manage waste carefully as we move forward.

ACI Asia-Pacific's regional director, Patti Chau, noted: This achievement reflects HIAs commitment to sustainable practices and reducing environmental impact and emissions. 

"ACI will continue supporting HIA and other airport members as they face the challenges of climate change and strive for long-term development and success.

This accreditation acknowledges HIAs commitment to tackling climate change and its target to improve carbon efficiency per passenger by 30% by 2030 against a 2015 baseline. 

In addition to a fuel saving programme aimed at reducing fuel consumption, HIAs Carbon Management Plan, delivers energy reduction initiatives throughout the airport. 

A cross-functional Energy Working Group identifies and promotes energy saving initiatives, including the optimisation of air-conditioning for passenger load bridges through integration with flight schedules, replacing conventional lighting with LEDs, and optimising light usage at the airports boarding gates.

A key component to HIAs Carbon Management Plan is encouraging the participation of the airports stakeholders including passengers, Qatar Airways and its subsidiaries, government stakeholders, private operators and retailers to engage in environmentally-conscious practices and reduce carbon emissions across the airport campus.

ACIs Airport Carbon Accreditation programme is the worlds only institutionally-endorsed, international carbon management programme for airports and offers certification at four levels which reflect incremental challenges in measuring, managing and improving carbon emissions.
