International recognition for Hermes’ efforts to reduce CO2 emissions

Hermes Airports has acquired Level 3 of the ACA Certification for the reduction of its carbon dioxide emissions, just one year after the acquisition of the ACI Airport Carbon Accreditation Level 2.

According to an announcement, ACA (Airport Carbon Accreditation) is issued by the ACI (Airports Council International) and focuses on efforts to map, calculate, reduce, optimise and offset carbon dioxide emissions across the globe.

There are four levels to the ACA certification, which have so far been acquired by 251 airports worldwide in 69 countries, representing 43 per cent of global air passenger traffic. So far, only 53 airports worldwide have acquired the certification that Hermes has obtained.

Both the airports that Hermes operates in Larnaca and Paphos have already commenced the necessary procedures and actions aiming for the highest level of Airport Carbon Accreditation (Level 3+, “Neutrality”), which is currently held by 49 airports.
