ZAGREB, 19 January (Hina) – Zagreb Airport (MZLZ) has signed the Airports for Trust charter, committing to working together with 22 other signatories in building a sustainable and responsible airport industry and promoting environmental protection, MZLZ announced on Tuesday.
The charter was signed by all members of the ADP (Aeroports de Paris) Group and several partners – TAV Airports, Airports International Group (Amman), Liège Airports, Nuevo Pudahuel (Santiago de Chile) and Ravinala Airports (Madagascar).
The signatories will move towards zero environmental impact operations to reach carbon neutrality by 2030 and will actively participate in the transition to using environmentally-friendly fuels. They have also undertaken to promote the integration of each airport into a local resource system, reduce the environmental footprint of airport planning and development projects, work together with local communities and stakeholders, promote innovation and reduce the exposure to noise.
By signing the charter, the 23 airports confirm that their social and environmental responsibility is not limited only to their teams, passengers, customers, suppliers and airport industry players, but also concerns all stakeholders in the countries where the group is present.
“Despite the biggest crisis in the history of air transport, the ADP Group and its partners are convinced that this period can make it possible to build a more sustainable and responsible future, and thus restore the confidence of citizens through resolute action to serve the environment and territories,” MLZL said.
MLZL CEO Bahadir Bedir said: “We are proud that MZLZ is part of this project, which calls for additional responsibility for a better and sustainable future.”
