Frankfurt sets fresh targets to reduce airport CO2 emissions

Frankfurt airport operator Fraport is establishing new climate protection targets to reduce CO2 emissions, not only for Germany’s largest airfreight hub but also across the entire group.
The goal is to lower CO2 emissions at Fraport’s fully-consolidated group companies by nearly half to about 125,000 tonnes of CO2 by 2030. The corresponding emissions in 2017 amounted to 209,668 tonnes.
Fraport’s new target is based on the national reduction rates agreed to at the United Nations Climate Change Conference in Paris in 2015.
Fraport’s executive board chairman, Stefan Schulte, said: “Growth and responsibility are not mutually exclusive, but belong together. In the spirit of corporate responsibility, we have firmly embedded climate protection in our Group companies to make a positive contribution to this worldwide effort.
"To achieve our CO2 goals, we will continue to improve the energy efficiency ratings of our buildings, facilities and processes.”
