Bringing another proud moment to every Indian, India’s Indira Gandhi International (IGI) airport has achieved the carbon neutral status.
According to reports, with this achievement, IGI has become the first airport in Asia-Pacific to have carbon neutral status.
The Airports Council International (ACI) announced IGI’s achievement during the airport carbon accreditation certificate presentation ceremony in Montreal, Canada.
Carbon neutrality occurs when the net carbon emissions over an entire year is zero.
Earlier, the airport was also awarded world’s number one position (in 25-40 million passengers per annum category) twice in a row under the Airport Service Quality (ASQ) programme.
The Economic Times quote airport officials saying that the airport carbon accreditation has upgraded Delhi airport to ‘Level 3+, Neutrality’, which is the highest level of achievement available to airports across the world.
