Mrs Patti Chau, ACI Asia-Pacific Regional Director said: “I would like to congratulate every airport that made the shortlist, each participating airport demonstrates continual commitment in improving the environmental performance and sharing the best green airport practice within our industry. Our panel of judges had the difficult task of selecting from many outstanding submissions that have proposed innovative solutions. I would also like to thank our judges for their time and hard work in reviewing the submissions.”
The Green Airports Recognition was established by ACI Asia-Pacific with the support of ACI Asia-Pacific Regional Environment Committee. The Recognition’s objective is to promote environmental best practices to minimise aviation’s impact on the environment and to recognise ACI Asia-Pacific airport members who have outstanding accomplishments in their environmental projects. Understanding that different airports have varying environmental priorities, a specific environmental aspect will be chosen as theme of recognition each year. This theme for this year’s recognition is Green Airport Infrastructure.
