Mumbai’s CSMIA achieves highest level 4+ “Transition” of ACA program of ACI
The Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport (CSMIA) has achieved the highest-level 4+ Transition of Airport Carbon Accreditation program (ACA) of the Airport Council International (ACI), to join only 31 such airports worldwide, an official said here on Thursday.
With CSMIA’s entry, there are now just 31 airports worldwide that have achieved the distinction of a Level 4+ accreditation and among only 3 in the entire Asia-Pacific Region, as the airport aspires to become a net-zero carbon emission by 2029 for its target of a ‘green airport’ in next seven years.
Director-General, ACI Asia-Pacific, Stefano Baronci lauded the CSMIA for the ‘remarkable achievements’ leading to reducing carbon emissions and setting an example for other airports in the region.
A comprehensive roadmap for Carbon Management for the targets of 2029, plans and investments on emission and energy consumption reduction projects, a green procurement policy for eco-friendly and less-polluting services and materials, etc. are well prepared by the CSMIA.
It has implemented 100 percent green sources for energy consumption, an onsite renewable power generation plant augments to 4.65 MW capacity, installed unique vertical axis wind turbine and solar PV systems with a capacity of 10KWp this year, with four more units to be set up next year, 6 electric vehicle charging stations, plastic waste management, and many other eco-friendly initiatives across the airport and outside.
The certification acknowledges CSMIA’s efforts in building a climate change strategy providing a comprehensive framework for managing its carbon footprint for a better green future.
