Frankfurt reaches carbon goal four years early

Frankfurt airport operator Fraport says it has met its climate protection targets four years ahead of schedule. Targets set for 2020 were reached in the 2016 business year 2016.
Fraport has therefore set itself new targets, for 2030 modeled on the German government’s Climate Action Plan. By then, it is aiming to cut CO2 emissions produced by operational activities to 80,000 tonnes – a reduction of 65% over 1990 levels. Emissions will be slashed to 0.9kg of CO2 per 100kg of airfreight or airmail.
Fraport executive board chairman Dr. Stefan Schulte said that much of the airport’s success was thanks to the efforts its employees.
