Farnborough Airport, hailed as Europe's foremost hub for premium air travel connectivity and renowned as the cradle of British aviation, proudly announced a momentous achievement recently.

It has been granted the coveted Level 4+ carbon accreditation, the highest accolade bestowed by the prestigious Airport Carbon Accreditation (ACA) scheme.

Distinguished as the sole institutionally endorsed global certification programme for airport carbon management, ACA meticulously evaluates and commends airports for their relentless endeavours to control and diminish carbon emissions. This recognition follows a rigorous assessment of Farnborough Airport's sustainable practices, spanning six levels of certification.

For Farnborough Airport, the attainment of Level 4+ status represents a pivotal milestone in their unyielding commitment to sustainability.

Simon Geere, the visionary CEO, emphasises the significance of this accomplishment: "Elevating our carbon accreditation from Level 3+ to 4+ represents another remarkable step towards our aspiration of becoming a revered global exemplar of airport sustainability."

The airport's dedication to environmental stewardship has been evident since 2018 when it made history as the first business aviation airport to achieve Carbon Neutral 3+ status.

Continuing its trailblazing initiatives, Farnborough Airport has further solidified its position as a pioneer in the industry by conducting successful trials of Sustainable Aviation Fuel (SAF) at par with conventional JET A1 fuel prices.

Additionally, the airport has pledged to achieve Net Zero emissions by the ambitious target year of 2030, or possibly even earlier, setting a standard that is truly unmatched in the aviation world.
